Appendix: Suggested Book of Mormon Doctrinal Mastery Pacing Guide

The pacing guide presented in the Instructions for Teachers is intended for teachers who want to teach Doctrinal Mastery in smaller segments multiple days per week.

The following pacing guide is intended for teachers who want to use an entire class session to teach each Doctrinal Mastery lesson. To achieve this, the pacing guide suggests that on certain days two scripture lessons be combined in one class session. This allows for the incorporation of the Book of Mormon Doctrinal Mastery lessons while still maintaining a total of 160 teaching days. If you choose to use this approach, you will need to decide which portions of the combined lessons to teach and which portions to summarize in order to fit both lessons into one class session.
