1. So what IS re:View?
Re:View is a worldview study designed to equip oung adults and college students to discern culture, and ultimately use it to engage their world. Through the use of award-winning short films and video teaching segments, leader’s guide and companion website, the study will change the way your students view and listen to the world around them.
While re:View can be taught in an abbreviated 7-session format, we do recommend the extended 13-session series, as it allows you to dig deeper into several of the topics. These extended sessions are noted in the leader’s guide with an ‘x’ following the topic name.
