Early Education Webinar: Teaching the Gospel to Children by Barbara Reaoch

Thur., Nov. 7, 2019
2:00-3:00 PM ET


We all fight a spiritual enemy who delights in taking the gospel and twisting it into a subtle deception called “Moralism”. Biblical morals are good. But unless we are careful children can believe that following rules is the way to earn favor with God. Gospel centered teaching says our behavior can never be “good” enough to make us right with God. In this webinar, Barbara Reaoch, author of "A Jesus Christmas," will help you discover how to teach in a gospel centered way.

This webinar is ideal for early education teachers.

Professional Development for Christian School Educators and Leaders

Professional development (PD) opportunities are nearly universal in the experiences of U.S. educators, both in public school settings and in Christian schools. The question of which PD strategies are most effective has become more critical in recent years, as schools face increasing internal and external pressures to improve student outcomes and optimize instructional expenditures. As a result, many school leaders are seeking to identify PD opportunities with high return on investment (ROI) in terms of student learning and achievement.

In an effort to address this issue systematically, a comprehensive literature synthesis was commissioned by ACSI (Swaner 2016). The synthesis, which surveyed over 500 scholarly articles and resources over the past 20 years, asked the question, “What are best practices in PD for Christian school teachers and leaders?” While little research was found specific to Christian education, what was available corroborated much of the broader literature on PD in K–12 schools. A set of characteristics of effective PD were identified in the literature, as well as a range of practices for which there exists research on their effectiveness. The synthesis also reviewed the evidence for the importance of cultures of continuous improvement to the effectiveness of any PD efforts.
