​As Christian teachers, we need to provide opportunities for our students to examine their own thinking and determine if their beliefs are in line with reality. Biblical Worldview Integration is not attaching a Bible verse to every lesson; rather, it is learning to see all of creation and all knowledge under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. This course will introduce effective strategies to help your students develop habits of thinking that are based on the truth and grounded in God’s word. This course counts toward both ACSI's Christian Philosophy of Education (CPoE) requirement and educational studies hours for renewal of ACSI certification.

​According to educator Rick Smith, being a new teacher is like trying to fly a plane while building it. If you've ever been a first-year teacher, you know exactly what that means. There are times you feel like you are frantically trying to attach the wings before the aircraft goes into a tailspin. All new teachers need someone they can count on for encouragement. That's where you come in. You don't need to have ten years of teaching experience to be a mentor teacher. You just need to know some practical ways to help. This course will prepare you to be a positive influence on a new teacher at your school.
