Session 5: Embrace & Apply

  • What does a “fully-formed” plan look like in your context? 
  • How is it helpful to reformulate our plan to include biblical integration content?
  • Plan BI for a Unit (Expanding from one concept to a full plan incorporating all learning):
    • Identify grade, subject, unit concept (essential content)
    • Seek age-appropriate answers to Why? And How? Questions.
    • Develop a full plan to build low-level knowledge and prepare student for high-level application or synthesis.

Curriculum Trak Connection: Curriculum Trak can provide a great place to sort out your “fully-formed” biblical integration plan. See a demo of that here
