Teaching for Transformation


Teaching for Transformation is a program that provides a framework for teachers to inspire their students to live out their Christian beliefs in action and not be satisfied with just "head-knowledge".

We pursue deeper learning by considering each learning experience as an exploration of a small narrative chapter in God's story. Educators design curriculum in which students not only learn about the stories of the world, they also serve as agents of change in response to what they learn, engaging in real work, thinking critically and creatively about how to work with God to restore the fallen brokenness of the world.



THE STORYLINE


Every Christian classroom must have a powerful and compelling vision of God's Kingdom that creates a longing and a desire within every student to play their part in the unfolding story of creation - fall - redemption - restoration.

BIBLICAL THROUGHLINES


Every Christian classroom must have an articulate and inspiring student profile that invites every student to imagine how to play their part in God's story.

FORMATIONAL LEARNING EXPERIENCES


Every Christian classroom must provide authentic (real work, real need, real people) opportunities for students to practice living the Kingdom story. This practice becomes a habit - shaping who we are.


"The primary goal of Christian education is the formation of a peculiar people, a people who desire the kingdom of God and thus undertake their life's expression of that desire."
James K. A. Smith
