Developing a Christlike culture, facilitating healthy faith formation, and providing tools to engage secular ideology, and expanding best practice around a clear and consistent application of biblical integration across all subjects.
Big Idea: The Christian classroom should reflect and reinforce the truths of a Christian worldview.
Summary: This session will introduce and give an overview of the purpose of worldview formation in the classroom and will lead participants in discovery of what holistic, well-rounded growth looks like.
Big Idea: Flourishing in God’s world requires affirming God’s design.
Summary: In order to have a Christian worldview, one must have a Christian view of the world. In this session, we will walk through the proper understanding of God, the universe, and mankind’s place in the universe as he relates to his Creator. Participants will engage with how this reality impacts worldview formation in their classroom.
Big Idea: True flourishing requires affirming true knowledge.
Summary: If flourishing in God’s world requires God’s affirming design, then anything that can be called truth must align with that design. In this session, we will discuss how the source of all truth is ultimately God. Participants will explore how to effectively communicate this in any subject and at any grade level.
Big Idea: Flourishing in the good life requires embracing God’s good design.
Summary: In this session, we will discuss how virtue, beauty, and ethics all find their justification and pattern in the character, nature, and Word of God. Participants will discover how to use any subject matter to display what true goodness looks like.
Big Idea: School culture is the soil in which the Christian worldview grows and the Christian life flourishes.
Summary: Nothing exists in a vacuum, but instead exists in an environment that either facilitates its flourishing or promotes its destruction. In this session, we will discuss the elements of a God-honoring school culture that enables the Christian worldview to flourish.
Summary: This session will allow participants to ask questions that have arisen in the instruction/application of the material. It will also serve as an opportunity to point participants toward the next steps with Colson Educators.
