RWI Overview

The Legacy Institute has developed a unique and comprehensive plan to put parents back in the driver's seat regarding relationship and sexuality education for their family. This biblical curriculum is called Relationships With Integrity (RWI).  This curriculum spans grades K-12, with 5-10 lessons in each grade, taught by teachers and/or youth leaders.  Parents use their wisdom & family values with their own children, and teachers/leaders create a positive peer experience using their RWI resources.


RWI Unit Review...

Grades K-3: These unique foundation lessons are beautifully woven through professional audio dramas. Student's imaginations are engaged as they listen to stories about a family in the town of Legacy, learning “heart lessons”, as Grandpa Henry, the narrator, likes to call them. Each grade has five stories, and each story emphasizes the key biblical truth for that lesson. The learning is reinforced through original artwork coloring books, sign language, object lessons, original songs, crafts and more! This whole-person experience allows key biblical truths about God to "cement" in the precious young minds and hearts, creating a relationship foundation for the years to follow. Each unit is 5-10 lessons depending on the setting.

K - God Is Love    

Children will learn about God's love for them, and why they are created uniquely as a boy or girl to love others. Family is a central focus along with a first glimpse at how loving relationships should work, even at a young age.


1 - God Is Life   

First grade children will learn about the power of life and the author and fiver of life, God Himself! Through the stories and activities, students begin to see life around them in new and inspiring ways, and the value of all life becomes very real.

2 - God Is Spirit   

Children will learn about God's Spirit and their body, soul and spirit. Students will learn that allowing God's Spirit to lead them is the key to walking by the Spirit, even at a young age. 

 

3 - God Is Light   

Children will learn their choices impact both the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness, and they quickly realize the power they have when they walk in the light. This unit brings to "light" important foundations for future decisions. 


Grades 4-6: These grades are important bridge years, helping students cross over to more understanding of relationships as they continue in their childhood journey. Each grade is very strategic in its approach, and all three are uniquely designed to include internal and external experiences, reminding students they are whole, integrated people. The lessons include elements such as: sign language, object lessons, games and crafts to reinforce the key biblical truths. Each unit is five to ten lessons, depending upon the setting.

4 - God Is Father   

God's role as Father comes alive through the DVD presentation of The Great King by the amazing actor, David Shelton. This remarkable story is the centerpiece of this unit, and helps the students see the unique relationship between God the Father, His Son the Prince and all of His children. Family and adoption are honored in this unit, along with each family member. 

5 - God Is One   

This unit emphasizes God as a union of persons. The unit sub-title is "an Adventure In Friendship", which focuses on unity, wholeness and being integrated people. The emphasis on healthy friendships helps students create patterns and principles for all relationships, as they grow older. The student's five aspects (physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and social are introduced for the first time. 

6 - God Is Holy   


This unit transports students to Medieval Times through audio lessons from Sir Robert the Knight (played by Grant Goodeve), a special castle book, object lessons, crafts and more to bring to life the important truths about holiness. This unique approach invigorates the imagination of students and helps them want to be trained for sanctification. The unit ends with a special coronation ceremony marking a rite-of-passage event for both young royal warriors and princesses. Parents are also included in this unique and moving event. 

Grades 7th-8th: At this age, many young teens need definition, clarity and a lot of encouragement. Every young teen is beginning the journey of identity, and these lessons help them answer key questions on that journey. Both of these units are DVD driven, with the video teacher doing the main teaching and the facilitating teacher leading the interaction in class and with small groups to personalize the material through discussion. A student workbook is included for each student, which reinforces learning and even includes doodle space. Jr. High age students still need to laugh, move and have fun! The object lessons and other activities give them a well-rounded experience, which helps them to see their uniqueness, but also their need for wholeness. Each grade’s unit is five lessons.

7 - You Are Designed To Be Whole   

This unit introduces the concept of Sexual Integrity for the first time, using the five aspects of each person as the centerpiece. The unit begins by framing the issue of male and female uniqueness, and then highlights how to live with integrity physically, intellectually, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Students begin to understand their choices leave a ripple or a legacy, even at this early age. Many students are already making decisions about the opposite sex, and this unit helps them manage that process with integrity, while reminding them of the key role of their parents. 

8 - You Are Designed To Be Life-Giving

This unit highlights God’s passion for life, and His prescription written in to the male and female design. While parents will take the lead on the most personal information, these lessons create an important understanding of the power of the gift of life and fertility and the reality that each of us will leave a legacy. Along with practical information about the physical design, stories of life-giving people and their legacies are also introduced. This will inspire students to create a roadmap for successful decision making in their own lives, as they realize they, too can be life-giving right now!
