As teachers, we are always looking for instructional tools that can positively impact student engagement and comprehension across all grade levels and subject areas.

Whether we teach in an overtly Christian environment, a creative access environment, or somewhere in between, the reality is that our teaching can only reflect Kingdom life and principles to the extent that our own personal lives are grounded in Christ. If we are not taking the time and care to nurture our own walk […]
Multiple studies have shown cooperative learning positively impacts student learning. Perhaps this is because part of being made in the image of God is living in community, which includes learning in community. Designing strong cooperative learning activities takes time. It is not enough to put students into groups and assign an activity. Too often, activities […]
I’ve always loved Advent. Every year I look forward to the opportunity to celebrate the epic story of how the Almighty, Creator God chose to limit Himself and step into His creation in order to bring restoration to a world that has lost its luster. I love the tale of a God so magnanimous and […]
Over the past month, my church has been studying Romans 1:18-2:5. As we have examined this passage, it has been a sobering reminder to me of why our job as Christian educators is so important. No matter what our cultural context, we are surrounded by a world that is operating on the philosophical assumption that […]

In addition to the routine reflections we engage in during the year, it is helpful for us to set aside some dedicated time to reflect, evaluate, and set goals for ourselves as teachers. What evidence do you see that your students’ lives were transformed this year?
As the end of the academic year is approaching (or for some of us, as we reflect on the year that has just finished), this is a good time to remind ourselves what our purpose is. What does it mean to practice our profession as devoted followers of Jesus Christ? We talk about ways to […]
One of the most challenging—and most rewarding—aspects of being a teacher is the on-going process of giving meaningful feedback to our students. We know that good feedback can be one of the most powerful tools to incite student learning; however, most of us face the dual struggles of knowing just what sort of feedback to give, […]
