    #135: How to Promote Worldview Thinking in the Classroom

    No matter where you teach, helping students understand worldview is important. In Christian schools, we want to guide them towards Biblical thinking; and in public schools, we can ask questions that will cause them to consider these important questions for themselves.

Game changer

This podcast is so helpful! As I’m debriefing on my way home from school or prepping for the day ahead I glean from Linda’s wisdom! It is so great to get outside perspective on how to be a good steward of my classroom.

Thankful

In 2014, I moved back to my home state of Maine. I had come from Idaho and a district which still had set curriculum, consequences for behavior, and a respect for teachers as the authority in the classroom. This shifted quickly in my new district, as I had no set Language Arts curriculum, consequences of behavior meant extra work for the teacher (complicated and time consuming behavior plans), and teacher authority was replaced with student centered classrooms. I actually was very familiar with all the theory, as I had recently completed a master’s degree, and it all sounded wonderfully progressive.
I then saw it in practice and experienced it first hand for four years. That is what led me to Teach 4 the Heart, as I was experiencing classroom management struggles like I was a brand new teacher. I completed the classroom management course, and it saved my sanity for that year. I spent far less time on things that did not matter in my classroom, became more proficient with the daily tasks, and spent far more time at the start of the year laying a foundation of routines, expectations, and building rapport with my students. Thank you ever so much for your help!
