DREYER, J.M.  y  KRUGER, F.P.. Designing a catechesis curriculum for Grades 1 - 3 in the Reformed Churches in South Africa. Koers (Online) [online]. 2011, vol.76, n.2, pp.325-355. ISSN 2304-8557.

This article describes the methodological approach that was used in the design of a curriculum for children in Grades 1-3 in the Reformed Churches in South Africa. The curriculum structure must guide the children to form an impression of and come to a realisation about the greatness of the Word of God. Catechism is a resolute instruction with a very specific learning outcome. In a society with postmodern thinking a catechism demands a lot from religious instructors. Various fundamental principles are no longer considered as self-evident. The contemporary endeavour to reach children in a purposeful manner has been an enterprise of the church throughout its history. Identifying the shortcomings of the past can guide us towards building on firm principles in future.

Palabras clave : catechism curriculum; catechism guides.
