  2. 2. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 2 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 2 Note from the Director: From a Christian philosophical perspective of education, thoughts and actions can be derived, implemented, and defended. The elements to be considered in developing a Christian philosophy of education range from theological and doctrinal to social and educational. This resource guide has grasped the most critical step by ensuring that the development is Biblical based. The Bible becomes the skeleton on which the practical application of our philosophy can be arranged. The basis of this Resource Guide is to be a working, living document on this Christian Education philosophy and provides a concise guide to the implications for the teaching-learning process of this Christian Education Program, the role of the educator, and the role of the learner. Since this is a living document, this page will be updated frequently to include resource links, books, handouts, and other documents that will become supplements to this resource guide. These updates will be listed on this page as they are accrued.

  7. 7. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 7 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 7 The Teaching-Learning Process The implications of having a sound Biblical base for the educational process are many. The educative process is the process by which the communication of the foundational truth is accomplished, in other words, it is the process by which the Christian philosophy of education is implemented in the classroom. Today, that classroom may look differently. It may be in the form of a technology based environment, but the purpose, method and result should still be the same.  The purpose is to put the believer into right relationship with God, man, self, and his surroundings.  The method is by the Spirit's assistance in the appropriation of Biblical truth to the believer's life.  The result will be a maturing believer who is able to live a life that is in conformity with the Word of God. In essence, Christian education is a process of guided learning where the teacher and the Holy Spirit combine efforts to help the leaner to spiritually grow and mature, to more and more conform to the image of Christ. The scope, or field of Christian education, though guided by Biblical truth, is not limited to Biblical exposition. Your goal as a Christian Education Teacher is to seek to develop the learner and enable him or her to understand, appreciate, and live a Christian life in the world in which God has placed him. Shalom‟s Christian Education Program is structured to help the individual develop the ability to separate truth from error, not only in Bible doctrine, but also in the facts and issues of his everyday life.
  8. 8. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 8 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 8 The Role of the Educator The Christian educator or teacher is to be a guide or resource person in the wonderful experience of learning… a facilitator. Your learners must know that you care about them. The educator must have experienced the reality of what he or she is attempting to teach or else we have a scenario of a blind man leading blind men. This is why we must always sustain a Christ-centered and Biblically grounded program. The nature of the teaching process gives us some clues as to the function of the teacher. As a Christian educator the teacher must be both a Christian and an educator. As a Christian he has experienced the reality of God's truth, and he has god's Spirit to empower him and his teaching. As an educator he functions in accordance with the mandate of God to teach in accord with the educational principles contained in the Word of God. Educate means to change one's behavior. In the book of 1 Corinthians, Paul exhorts his readers to be followers of him as he is of Christ. This must be true of the teachers too, for as leaders they must exemplify what they are trying to teach. The American Association of Christian Schools has identified the following six qualifications of a Spirit-filled teacher: Six Qualifications for a Spirit-filled Teacher are: 1. The teacher is the communicator of truth, he must be openly and boldly a Christian. 2. Every teacher must know the bible. Because the Word of God is relevant to all subjects. 3. The Christian teacher must be committed in every aspect of his life and work, in all his being, to the truth. 4. The teacher must seek excellence. This is a seeking after intellectual excellence to the glory of God, and a Christian teacher should be content with nothing less than superiority in this area. 5. The Christian teacher must truly love his students, seeking their highest good even when at times the way may be hard. Not only should he love his students, he should genuinely like and understand them. 6. Finally, the Christian teacher should exercise complete submission to the one great teacher. Every teacher must listen to the Lord, and the Holy Spirit, for his lessons and never should he think that he does not need to be taught of Him. (Source: American Association of Christian Schools)
  9. 9. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 9 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 9 The Role of the Learner The learner represents the challenge to the Christian educational process. Each believer brings to class a personal set of needs, wants, and goals. Each is looking for fulfillment and growth in his/her own personal and spiritual life. Every learner starts with his/her own basic needs, thus the educator must seek to motivate the learner to discover and apply God's provisions to his/her life. In Christian education true learning comes as the learner experiences the wonder of God's truth applied to his life. The pupil is to be considered as an individual, a person of worth, as God sees us as individuals. Their personal experiences and knowledge have value. Remember, the pupil is a responsible member of a learning group, having something to contribute and something to learn. The truth that is learned must not be finally imposed from without, but rather must be discovered by the pupil under the guidance and leadership of the teacher and the Holy Spirit. To summarize the Role of the Learner, LeBar, Lois. Education That Is Christian, 1968, p. 136, LeBar states: "A pupil's growth is determined not by what he hears, but by what he does about what he hears. The important thing is what is happening inside the pupil. He may accept or he may reject whatever is going on outside. Learning is what the pupil does and what the outer forces do to him. Teachers can influence the inner factors only by properly using the outer factors. If a teacher will work with the Spirit of God, He can use him to effect the desired inner changes."2 Therefore, it is the task of the teacher to help his pupils to know and to understand the principles of Scripture for their lines, and then to lead them to accept these principles as their own. The motivation would not remain outward, that is because the teacher says so, but rather, the pupil must be guided to the place where he can think through the issues and apply it to his life. Once the divine work of the Holy Spirit is accomplished, (John 16) God's pre-determined principles become self-chosen goals.
  10. 10. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 10 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 10 Teaching Principles and Application The Learning Centered Approach Very few people in education have not heard of the rumored shift from instructor to learner. Institutions discuss “learner-centered”, throwing the term around as if it should be implicitly understood. Faculty, administrator, and learner interpretations of the concept vary. What does it mean? Winer, Rushby, and Vazquez-Abad describe learner-centeredness as “…the assumptions that the students are self-motivated, accountable for their own learning, should be respected, as well as exercise control over their learning outcomes…” (p. 876). “Independent learning requires that people take responsibility for their own learning. Individual responsibility stems from the belief that learning can be affected by effort, and this belief is the critical factor which leads to individuals' perseverance in the face of obstacles.” The process of learning has long been debated in realms of religion, and philosophy. The challenge of creating a comprehensive definition lies in the different interpretations of both intent and method of learning. Acknowledging that learning is a process beyond simply processing information requires a definition that is valuable in both formal and informal learning activities. Learning is not an isolationist activity without intent or aim. The key point in all of this text, whether the instruction is for Christian Education or education in a traditional learning environment, is that certain learning experiences build skills; others build attitudes, beliefs, or other “soft knowledge”. The ultimate intent of the process is to be able to do or achieve something. In this regard, learning can simply be defined as actuated or actionable knowledge. This definition has two components - knowledge: understanding of an implicit or explicit nature, and actuation: doing something appropriate (defined as contextually aware) with knowledge. In the Christian Education learning environment, we want the learner to gain an understanding of God‟s written Word and the execute actuation by living out the Word.
  11. 11. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 11 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 11 Shalom Christian Education Learning Design Effective learning design must recognize different domains of learning that Shalom‟s Christian Education curriculum has followed. Learning Development Cycle attends to four broad learning domains:  transmission  emergence  acquisition  accretion Shalom Christian education focuses on different objects, in order to meet the intended learning goals. Design objects include: instruction, fostering reflection and critical thinking, creating access to resources. Each time the teacher provides instruction, it is critical that he/she remembers that their role is more than imparting information. At Shalom, the curriculum design is strategically aligned with the different domains of learning and focused on different objects to achieve the intended learning goals. Let‟s examine the domains further as shown in the graph below: (Source: Bridging Learning Designs, Siemens, 2005)
  12. 12. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 12 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 12 Application The span of instruction time is usually restricted to one hour. In some instances, there may be an additional five to ten minutes, which is customarily applied to posturing the learners and or the learning environment. The following diagram illustrates the “One-Hour-Block” instructional design and its application: This illustration depicts the ¼ hour presentation segments of the one-hour instruction. The hour is divided by the learning domain and drives the different objects to achieve the intended learning goal. This resource guide is developed in a methodology that the contents can be used as the lesson plan. Using what you‟ve learned about the learners, follow the Lesson Plan template and apply these skills. Shalom Ministries, Christian Education Lesson Plan Template - Sample

  22. 22. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 22 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 22 Communications Plan We plan to enhance the communication flow and training events through a couple of unique methodologies that maximize the use of technology. The mode and frequency of communication with the learners and the instructional team is shown in the illustration above and includes: 1) Webinars - everyone on the teaching team either has a computer or access to a computer. With hectic scheduling and limited access to actually conducting a face-to-face seminar or c-learning (classroom learning), the e-Learning modality is an excellent alternative. Monthly, the plan is to provide an e-Learning webinar that can be broadcast live and recorded for later viewing. The training events will be dual purposed. They will not only serve as a venue for training, but an opportunity for participants to communicate on teaching formats, concepts, ideas, and scheduling.
  23. 23. Shalom Ministries Christian Education Resource Guide (Working Document) Oct 2010 23 Shalom Ministries |Christian Education Resource Guide 23 2) Podcast - this is a unique and innovative methodology that will also be multipurpose. The first purpose would be to provide a convenient and effective methodology to communicate messaging. Expansion of the messaging topics and the deliverer of the messaging is the exciting part where we have an opportunity for the teaching team to be participatory. The podcast are planned to be 10-15 minutes in duration. The speaker will be rotated among the Adult Volunteer Teaching Team and the Youth Teaching Team. Completed podcast will be included in the Christian Education technology library and/or posted on the website. There will be standard messaging platform that is presented for each session. However, the uniqueness will be who will be delivering the message, as well as the content. For example, a teen may be the key note speaker for the podcast. He/she will be given an opportunity to actually research the scripture, compile elements of the message and present the message. Also, included in that podcast, will be the platform information that reiterates the mission, purpose, objective of our ministry. It is essential that the instructional team stay connected. If you miss a meeting, review any broadcast material and connect either with the Director or a team member.
