The Wiccan Rede.
This module does just as the name suggests, it offers an overview of the Wiccan faith and its philosophies. It looks at how and when Wicca was established and what it means to call yourself a witch. It further explores the aspects and uses of the God, Goddess and how they may be worshiped and included in the Wiccan faith.
The Threefold Law.
This module focuses solely on the Rede and the Three Fold Law. The Wiccan Rede is a mission statement that provides a code of ethics and a moral value system that many Wiccans choose to follow and live by. The Three fold law or the rule of three further promotes this as it states that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, it will be returned to that person three times. Not all Wiccans subscribe to these laws, i wonder how you will feel about them after learning more?
The 13 Wiccan Principles.
The 3rd module explores the 13 Wiccan Principles. These were adopted by the Council of American Witches, in April 1974.

The Rede, Three fold Law and Principles often help Wiccans formulate the foundation of their faith. How will you choose to practice?

The History of the Pentagram.
This module does a deep dive exploration into the Pentagram or Pentacle and its rich historical background.
There are several symbols that are associated with Wicca and Witchcraft. Some of these are only loosely associated whilst others are linked almost exclusively. This module takes a look at the most commonly noted symbols and associations.
The terminologies included in this module will come in handy when reading information on Wicca and Witchcraft as meanings are not usually given as part of the text.

You could also add this information into your own book of shadows or grimoire.
