A new integrated trio of Koine Greek resources just came out in Accordance. I review them in the was-going-to-be-short-but-ended-up-longer video below. Product page links follow.
Curious to hear, especially from Greek-teaching types, if you’ve used this still newish resource from Dr. Harris, and just generally what you find helpful in teaching Greek in classroom settings.

I’ve just had this resource for a week, so I feel like I’ve barely plumbed its depths. I am planning to offer a short, four (or so)-week Greek course through Accordance soon, and I expect to be drawing lots of inspiration from Dr. Harris’s resources.
Update: for an even better review, see Brian W. Davidson’s post here.
Disclosure: Accordance set me up with volumes to review. And I lead Webinars for Accordance. That did not influence the objectivity of this post.

Oh, count me in on the Greek course through Accordance you are planning!
I have the Mounce, Decker, and, Stevens texts. I am tempted to get the Harris set just because it takes a somewhat different approach.
In my student days I always liked having texts other than the official course text to examine the various approaches taken in presenting a subject.

Great! I’ll let you know when I have more details set.
Good call about having different texts to compare. Same here. At some point (as with commentaries, I suppose?) one has to wonder just how many ways there are to teach a thing, but the proliferation of textbooks in all fields seem to suggest folks are at least attempting fresh ways all the time!
In this case, this is the first video option Accordance has offered for learning a language, as far as I’m aware.
Do these modules work in the Accordance iPad app?
