Integrating Doctrinal Mastery Passages Into Your Lesson

This page is formatted for printing

Throughout the Seminary year -- but especially as you approach the end of the year -- you may wish to look for ways to introduce (for younger students) or reinforce (for graduating seniors) all Seminary Doctrinal Mastery (DM) scriptures.

Here are a few possible ideas to help you do so:

  • Give students a list of all DM scriptures for them to glue into their scriptures.
  • Have an in-class Seminary activity day where older students share their favorite DM scripture, or scriptures (from other years) to the other students in your class.
  • If you teach seniors, give them an open book doctrinal mastery "quiz" that uses doctrinal mastery scriptures from all 4 Seminary years. (Other students could also be offered the opportunity to take the "quiz" -- perhaps for extra credit.)
  • Each time a Book of Mormon doctrinal mastery scripture "comes up" in the course of a lesson, ask students to check their 100 DM list and see what DM scriptures from other years might also apply.
  • Take an activity day and invite students to chain the 100 DM scriptures together -- as they see fit. (You'll be pleasantly surprised by the connections that they will find.)
  • Allow students to "pass off" DM scriptures from the following year, perhaps for extra credit, after they have finished all the passages from the current Seminary year.
