Spiritual Formation

R180.00

The Gospel is more than a ‘salvation moment’? The big question is what is God up to in this life? Christian Schools are responsible for creating and maintaining a climate that encourages the spiritual formation of their students.

Spiritual formation is a process by which a child’s conscious relationship with God is developed within the context of a community of faith that fosters the child’s understanding of, and response to, that relationship.

This Spiritual Formation course explores this process encouraging teachers to create safe spaces for children to experience Go

Seeing God's Children

R180.00

Seeing God’s Children sounds like a simple task. But the question to be asked is, “How does the way you view the learners in your class, differ from how God views those same learners?” It is of utmost importance that we see these children for who they are, for who God created them to be, in their entirety. Unique, talented and filled with so much potential.

In this workshop we attempt to define and break down concepts such as Perspective, Prejudice, Generations and how they differ in relation to real life issues, Social Perceptions and we also give three tips to Help Navigate this great divide.

This workshop challenges our point of view and our hope is that God would have His way and do a work within your heart and circumstances, making you a better teacher, role model and mentor to the beautiful children He has placed in your class.

Biblical Integration

R180.00

Who is winning the battle of our children’s minds and hearts? Christian teachers should know what they as individuals believe and why. This will allow Christian teachers to be able to integrate a Biblical worldview into their current teaching curriculum

The Biblical Integration course briefly discusses various common worldviews competing with a Biblical worldview. The course leads the teacher to plan curricular activities, that will help the student think through subject matter, and skill development to acquire the habit of connecting and distinguishing all knowledge to their Biblical worldview.

Christian School Curriculum

R180.00

The curriculum in any school is the driving factor towards the school’s vision and mission. Even though many Christian Schools follow a national or secular curriculum, this course will equip leaders and teachers to ensure that the overarching school curriculum is Christ-centred.

This course will help participants understand the philosophy of Education, Christian Education in particular, and the importance of being in control of the school’s curriculum. The course will highlight the role of the teacher with regards to curriculum design, classroom methodology and the choice of subject resources. The course will challenge every teacher to recognize and apply the Biblical distinctives for each school subject into their teaching.

The Christian School Curriculum course will challenge and change the way you see and implement your school curriculum in the classroom and will assist every teacher in systematically fulfilling God’s mandate to every Christian teacher.

Discipline and Classroom Management

R180.00

Discipline in the average classroom is a cause of great stress for all teachers. There are so many influences that may affect the success of the teacher in creating an environment that is effective for teaching and learning.

Are you a Christian teacher who would like to understand how God disciplines and provides useful practical advice on managing and disciplining children in their classroom. Start this course today!

Role and Responsibilities of a Christian Teacher

R180.00

So much is expected from a teacher in every school. Whilst academic excellence is expected, teachers fulfil the role of surrogate parent, psychologist, mentor, disciplinarian etc. in every given day.

This course will help teachers identify these, significant and divergent, roles they are called to play in leading children towards a life that is devoted to following Jesus Christ. Understanding the demands placed on Christian teachers in Christian schools is significant, ACSI has created this course to help teachers understand God’s call to a Christian classroom.

Previous Conferences

Unravelling Barriers to Learning #1

R180.00

The heart and purpose of Christian Education is to nurture children and develop an environment that is inclusive and without prejudice

. This worldview develops around our set of beliefs and then gives meaning and expression to everything we do. Children with barriers to learning are a diverse group of individuals, exhibiting difficulties in different areas. Children differ in their coping skills too. Some children learn to adjust to learning difficulties, while others struggle throughout their lives to do even the simplest task. Teachers are often the first to notice a child who might have learning barriers.

Sometimes the signs are easy to identify but more often the issues are not always as clear or obvious. These issues are often multi-dimensional, and it takes experience or ‘knowing’ to identify and act upon them

The conference will aim to:

Create an understanding and ability to recognise different
learning disorders.
Help teachers to identify children who could potentially have
learning difficulties.
Help teachers identify different practices within the classroom
setting to accommodate children’s needs.
Identify the roles of different professionals who could help with
possible intervention.

No Neutrality

R180.00

The heart and purpose of Christian Education is to initiate, develop and nurture a Biblical view of the world in which we live. This Biblical worldview will help us determine how we respond to this world.

Our worldview develops around our set of beliefs which is the ‘framework’ that gives meaning and expression to everything we do. It helps us understand who we are, why we are here and where we are going, and is the lends through which we view God, ourselves, the world, and everything in it.

This includes how we view and deal with the various social issues and challenges we face daily.

Communication Building Blocks

R180.00

As Christian educators, we acknowledge that parents have the primary responsibility for the education of their children, and we understand and respect their God-given mandate to raise up their children in the way of the Lord.

Our responsibility as teachers is to come alongside parents to support them in their role. Many parents need help with the multiple facets of educating children, especially with fostering healthy whole-child development and spiritual growth. That is why we need to do our best to build good communication channels and trusting relationships with parents and caregivers to benefit the children in our care.

Misunderstandings between teachers and parents can consume much energy and time, making an otherwise fulfilling occupation very draining and dissatisfying. Furthermore, an unhealthy parent/teacher relationship undermines the education process and ultimately hurts the development of the child. Strategies that build communication, as well as strengthen and inform helpful parental involvement, go a long way to building a trusting and happy partnership between parents and teachers.
