Year after year after year my students express frustration in learning how to read and understand the scriptures. So this has been an unrelenting task for me to try and come up with succesful ways to help them understand what they are reading and then apply it to their individual lives.
So here is one technique. Simply put, here is a scripture marking packet for 1 Nephi in the Book of Mormon. By no means do I expect to hit every important principle in this book here. No way. This was simply intended to 1) Help them understand better what they are reading, 2) Teach them new ways to mark their scriptures (other than simply coloring in an entire verse) and 3) Letting them move forward from there.
