“As a World Language teacher and a follower of Jesus Christ, I cannot say enough about the Spanish Charlotte's Web—for its beauty and spirit of truth and for the life that it infuses into the hearts and minds of my students. In this age, what we need is a deliberate method to slow the soul down and cultivate it through reflection. I have not come across any material that has satisfied my students and me so deeply as the AMO series of Teacher Guides. The methods and content truly cultivate the heart and train the mind for godliness through the acquisition of language.” — J. R., High School Spanish Teacher, U.S.A.

    Biblical Methods

    AMO’s Methods:

    Most adults around the world ‘look down on’ children and discount their spirituality because they are ‘mere children.’ Jesus esteems them as the “greatest in the kingdom of God” (Matthew 18:1-5).

    AMO’s methods are based on the Christian view of the child:

    Man, the crowning glory of creation, is made in God’s image and destined for immortality. Every child has great potential, creativity, the capacity to think and reason, dream and envision. Each is ennobled with dignity and worth! In the eye of God, all children are equal and imputed with independent value apart from their station in life and their abilities.

    AMO’s methods are distinctively biblical:

    1. The Gospel is proclaimed!
    2. The whole child is nurtured—mentally, spiritually, aesthetically, physically, and socially.
    3. Love is shared through relationships, service projects and community events.
    4. Truth is imparted in every lesson.
    5. Creativity is inspired by the fine arts.
    6. Christian imagination is cultivated.
    7. God’s Hand in history is memorialized.
    8. Reflective thinking and reasoning with God’s Word is practiced in every lesson.
    9. Character is taught as causative, not the environment.
    10. Parents are included through weekly prayer and blessing cards.
    11. A written record of learning is maintained by each child.
    12. Learning is celebrated through music, drama, and festivals.
