To make the task of teacher preparation less daunting, a copy of The Ecumenical Patriarchate: A Brief Guide by John Chryssavgis (published by the Order of St. Andrew) is included with each Teacher Pack (M18). The most pertinent pages from this brief, colorful book are noted in the Teacher Guide. The Teacher Pack also includes the two DVDs to show during class: “60 Minutes: The Patriarchate” and “The Green Patriarch.”
