  • Core values & worldview impact school outcomes

    A leader’s worldview affects all that they say, do, and think. When it comes to the development of the school’s curriculum, there is no way to approach the task without it being impacted by one’s worldview. Therefore, it is essential that leaders first recognize their bias and address the influence of their individual perspectives.

    Every teacher teaches from a point of view, a point of view determined by his fundamental convictions, philosophical, theological, psychological, scientific, and so on. Those convictions are not something separate from his education, but are shaped by it as it is shaped by them. An atheist sees history, and everything else, differently than a theist; and his atheism may be the result of his education or may simply confirm what his education has taught him.[1]

  • The task of Christian schooling

    As we look around us, we observe increasing moral decline. Changes in our society introduce us to philosophies that blatantly counter biblical principles. Humanism and relativism are making their way into the ideologies of school systems. "Faith in the moral autonomy of individuals has resulted in a society that has lost its moral moorings" (Van Brummelen, 1994). How can we resist these trends? Christian schools must take a closer look at what we are doing to prepare our students for living in a degenerating society. As Christian school educators in North America or in other parts of the world, we recognize that our students need to be equipped to face the opposition they will inevitably encounter as they become an active part of society. But what is Christian school education? How is a Christian school different from a public school or another private but wholly academic school? Are Christian schools showing evidence of the differences?

  • Understanding the Times digital homeschool curriculum

    Summit Ministries is offering six free lessons from their high school curriculum series for homeschool families (regular value is $129). It is available as an iPhone app or by accessing the SummitU site using a Chrome browser. The trial lessons are available for about one year. There are 36 lessons in a full year.

    I have personally benefitted a lot from the Summit Ministries lectures so would recommend you try these lessons for yourself.

    This is the most dynamic worldview experience available today. It puts the proven Summit program in a box to prepare students to stand against false worldviews, to be biblically strong, and to engage the culture with truth.

                                              Understanding the Times homeschool series

    This series is perfect for co-ops, too. With Summit’s proprietary digital app, you can create an entire syllabus in seconds (literally). Everything you need is included—discussion questions, quizzes, tests, videos, supplemental readings, and activities. Just pick whatever combination of courses you wish to construct a “graduate education” in apologetics, worldview, and cultural engagement:
    • Understanding the Faith is the Bible and apologetics course you’ve always wanted, teaching core biblical beliefs and how to refute the Christian worldview’s biggest critics.
    • Understanding the Times introduces students to non-Christian worldviews and teaches them how to think through and respond to competing ideas.
    • Understanding the Culture, available in the summer of 2017, deploys a biblical worldview to show students how to engage today’s most pressing issues.
    Understanding the Times is the classic worldview course studied by tens of thousands of students. Now it’s completely updated and vetted by over 65 Bible-believing experts.
     

    It’s the most captivating and engaging curriculum we’ve ever produced. And now with three courses, you have options to fit your family’s needs. Or you can use all three courses to give your high schooler a first-class worldview education.

  • 从三维角度看基督教教学

    在我们的社会中,学者、老师和助教老师身处变革的第一线。一些强大的力量正在影响着我们的孩子和青年。媒体和市场在争夺孩子和青年的注意力,也在抓住每一 个机会来塑造他们的感觉和决定。家长、同伴以及社会团体在不同且相冲突的方向上“抢夺”着他们。而在这其中,面对对自身角色各种不同的期望——这些期望甚 至是相冲突的,教育者深处挣扎之中。他们被期望能够帮助学生在不同中找到意义,对此做出合适的回应并为未来的不确定性做好准备。
