This is TEACHING FOR TRANSFORMATION

Truly transformational curriculum asks something of our students, it demands a response. We seek to educate Calgary Christian School students to transform God’s kingdom, thereby “God’s Children Making the World a Better Place”. These attributes we seek to instill are called throughlines and are viewed as the “end product” of each TfT unit. Teachers ask “What “faith in action” characteristic do I hope our students will gain at the conclusion of our study in this subject?”

God- worshippers                       Idolatry- discerners

Earth- keepers                            Beauty- creators

Justice- seekers                          Creation- enjoyers

Servant- workers                        Community- builders

Image- reflectors                        Order – discoverers
