The challenge: At Christian schools, we want our students to develop a Christ-centered worldview, to see all of life through the lens of Scripture. This is a big challenge! One way we address this challenge is by having our students connect what they study with Biblical teaching.
Where can you get some help with this challenge?
Right here! In this 10-step tutorial, you'll learn how to help your students make connections. You'll learn to design a Biblical perspective lesson plan and a Biblical perspective assessment. And after you teach your lesson and give your assessment, you'll reflect on your lesson plan and assessment results.
