Coordinating FAR & BITM

Most topics included in this study are also taught, though often with different emphasis, in Blessed is the Man, our companion volume for boys. However, since the units are arranged to coincide with two very different Scripture passages, corresponding units in the two studies will not necessarily have concurrent numbers. To make it easier for families to use the two curricula together, we offer here a list of corresponding mini-units on various topics.

Obviously, some topics in one study will not warrant a complete section in the other. Where that occurred, I have listed the location in FAR and written N/A under the BITM side. All items are listed by their FAR mini-unit title with the corresponding BITM mini-unit listed only by number and letter. These latter are to be read this way: (1B = Mini-unit B of Unit 1, etc.).
