Teaching For Transformation
What is Teaching for Transformation?
Teaching for Transformation (TfT) is a framework for Christian education used to help activate the SWCHS vision in the classrooms.
Through its core practices, students are empowered to see the story of God’s kingdom and invited to live the story. Classroom activities and instruction are aimed at helping students to see the deeper connections between the content and God’s story. Multiple days of professional development are set aside each year for deepening TfT practices.
- Each teacher crafts a Deep Hope & Storyline to hook students & help them see the deeper connections
- Teachers align their curriculum toward the SWCHS Throughlines
- Teachers design Formational Learning Experiences (FLEx) to invite our students into action
Throughlines are discipleship habits and practices that both form the learners and transform God’s world around them. Throughlines help students, teachers, and parents imagine what it means to be a disciple within God’s story. They articulate a vision for how their school’s graduates will live.
