STUDENT’S GUIDE

From the Author

Dear Home School Parent and Christian School Administrator,

Would you like to train your students to tackle the legal, geo-political and spiritual issues facing America today? Do you want them to be equipped with the educational tools that will make a difference for the good in the public arena?

Would you like them to understand the fundamental rights set forth in the Bill of Rights that cannot be found in any teaching curriculum anywhere in America?

My name is Don Brown, and years before my best-selling novel TREASON was published, a novel that in November of 2009 skyrocketed to number 1 in the world on the amazon.com bestsellers list for fiction, I was a home school parent. Later, I became involved in a Christian school, served on the school board and later became Chairman of the Board of Carmel Christian School in Matthews, NC.

During those years, my passion for Christian education grew.

So in 2004, when I signed my first contract with Zondervan for TREASON and HOSTAGE I set out with a goal not only to entertain my readers, but also to add an exciting, biblically-based educational component to my novels. I wanted to write fiction about the real- time, modern legal and geo-political issues facing the world today.

The novel TREASON, which has been called the “novel that predicted Fort Hood,” features a storyline touching upon five of the ten amendments in the Bill of Rights, various issues and insights into radical Islam versus Christianity, the US military, the American criminal justice system, and other issues we must confront in the Twenty-First Century.

Now, in the fulfillment of a vision of an educational product to help train a new generation of Americans to stand up tomorrow and defend our faith and defend our Constitutional form of government, I am pleased to join Zondervan Publishing Company in introducing the HOME SCHOOL/CHRISTIAN SCHOOL GUIDE TO THE NAVY JUSTICE SERIES.

Would you like to teach your students the ugly secrets of radical Islam, so that they can expose the truth to the advocates of political correctness who claim there’s no difference between Islam and evangelical Christianity?

Want your kids to understand the officer ranks in the US military?

How about exposing your students to the history of modern-day Israel?

Or how about a basic overview of how forensic evidence works in the US Court System?

2

Sadly, this valuable information is not taught effectively in any curriculum anywhere. Many Americans say they support the Constitution. Yet, most have no clue about the basic principles of the Constitution or our judicial system. In this sense, our educational system, both secular and Christian, has failed us.

If you’re convinced that a unique educational approach is needed in America to equip young, future leaders to be able to stand in the arena, and to defend the Constitution and the Gospel with polished intelligence and clarity, then we share the same passion.

Here’s how you can introduce your student to the most exciting and unique educational opportunity of its kind in the country! First, have your student read the novel TREASON. This exciting novel, which is well-suited for levels from grades 8 – 12, can be read easily in two to three days, but we suggest taking a week to digest the novel. TREASON can be purchased online at amazon.com, barnesandoble.com, christianbook.com, or directly online from Zondervan. If you have an e-reader like a Kindle or Nook, these can be valuable in having your students research the book after reading it.

Then, lead your students in a discussion about TREASON.

After that, your students start working through the HOME SCHOOL/CHRISTIAN SCHOOL GUIDE TO THE NAVY JUSTICE SERIES for Book 1, TREASON.

Feel free to preview the Teacher’s Guide, and to “pick and choose” whatever you would like to teach from. But for the richest educational experience, we recommend that your students work through the entire guide at their own pace. You’ll discover constitutional principles interspersed throughout, including issues and storylines about the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Amendments, which are five of the most important Amendments in the Bill of Rights.

Some of the answers can be found in the novel, and many others can be found easily by internet research from sources like Wikipedia and others. This is a valuable and exciting learning experience they won’t forget!

The answer key gives you, as the Christian educator, all the guidance you need to a new world of learning that your students won’t be exposed to anywhere else.

Give your student the tools to “fight the good fight, to finish the race, and to keep the

faith!”

Wishing rich blessings for you and your family,

the good fight, to finish the race, and to keep the faith!” Wishing rich blessings for
