Begin living out what they have learned, have room for forgiveness and pray daily. Jesus 's teachings will give parents greater strength, wisdom, and support in parent-child relationships and also
In Matthew 5:16, it states, “in the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16, NIV). Christian educator’s classroom should embody principles that are reflective of a Christian worldview to implement a biblical worldview to support a Christian philosophy in education in a practical application. We must instill themes like love, wholeness, and responsibility of knowledge. Graham states, “biblical teachings concerning love, wholeness, and responsibility, as well as our experience of them in Christ, must be brought to bear on our studies and research” (Graham, 2009, 24). Teaching is more than just teaching
Many people have tried to separate the idea of worldview and education, particularly in public education, but it’s impact cannot be ignored. Controversy arises though through the implications of people’s worldviews when applied to educational policy and practice (Naugle 2005 p260). Dowson (2014 p40) examines the organisational perspective of an educational philosophy as critical to guiding the purpose and objectives of educational institutions. In Christian education, Wolterstorff (2004 p256) highlights the need for faith to engage with and shape the learning of students. This has had a significant impact on the educational policy development of Christian Schools.
My readings from True Education by Ellen White has caused me to picture my future classroom, students, and what I will look like as a teacher. I want my classroom to be in accordance with how God would want it to be. True Education has given me a good template of what that would look like. I hope to have a classroom that stretches my students physically, mentally, and spiritually. I hope to have a classroom that is not cooped up all day but instead gets to learn in nature.
If they have the good, you can only hope that it is a never ending cycle of the good. You want to teach your kids about morals and religion, and values and how to grow into a remarkable person. So that way you can carry on the good parenting with your children and they do the same with their
It shouldn 't matter if a teacher teaches in a Christian, private, or public school setting, they should consider a list of elements that are essential to successfully integrating worldviews in a classroom setting. The first element is Biblical Answers to Life’s Biggest questions. In a Christian school setting this is fine, but it may need to be changed slightly in a public forum. Element two is to create engaging and interactive lessons. Three is Processing Activities; this activity asks students to reflect on What God’s word says and if there are any conflicts within the lesson and the Bible.
Listening and caring skills according to John Savage offers specific and teachable listening skills for improving relationships among those who do ministry. The skills are taught through oral exercises and unfailingly helpful examples from actual congregational situations. Some of the skills include expression of feelings and emotions which includes the skill of direct expression of feeling, indirect expression of emotions and direct expression of feelings. Our feelings and emotions can be induced by many things from the external world. The more [one] is aware of the emotions and feelings the more you can determine how you will act or behave (John Savage 49, 50).
Therefore, a counselor wants to be a channel through whom the love of God for this client can flow. This means that a counselor would need to be participating in the life of God so that the ways of God and the goals of God are primary in the counselor’s life. In other words, an counselor would need to do the things that God would have them to do. If an counselor was to talk and live the life of a Christian, then they don’t need to change how they really are within a session. In a counselors mindset this would include inviting the client to be an active participant in the counseling process with emphasizes on collaboration, working on the goals that the client identifies, (which makes up a good counselor because that’s the number one thing is to actually listen to the client), a counselor should manage appropriately within the context of the therapeutic relationship, treat the client with respect and not quick to belittle them or think negative of them, developing skills of empathy so that a counselor can speak the truth in love, and being knowledgeable about and adhering to the ethical standards established for the profession of
One of the most important aspects a teacher needs to consider, in my opinion, is to have awareness of the English Language Learners and to make sure we are meeting their individual learning needs. We need to know who they are as a person and what we need to do for them, so that they are academically successful. Our job as educators is to make sure our students succeed and go off to college. “Students who are still in the process of acquiring English are entering colleges and universities at an unprecedented rate.
Teachers do not only teach their pupils math, science, history and other facts, but these educators teach them how to think and solve problems in order to develop the students’ character. Westside says in their vision statement that “They (students) are inspired and equipped to excel academically, think critically, and understand that what they learn is a gift to be used for the sake of others.” That sums up what the teachers at Westside are trying to do: have students think about the big picture. A big aspect of being human is being able to think, reason and make choices based on one’s learning.
Furthermore, how the concept of vocational calling influences the individual’s psychological well-being for both the Christian viewpoint and the secular perspective and how career counselors can aid in facilitating an environment where they can educate people in order to help them find their gifts. The first point that ought to be pointed

Not only will I be receiving an excellent education, I will also be learning to grow into a more spiritual, moral person. At St. Brigid’s School, I have done my best to be a good student. I work hard and study to achieve academic success, and I ask my parents and teachers for help if I don’t understand a concept I have been learning. During my time at St.
