Good Shepherd Lutheran School – Angaston
Dan Hausler (Christian Studies Leader) and Renae Ruediger (PYP Coordinator) co-facilitated a staff PD day on Thursday 4th July. Time was taken to clarify understandings of Christian Studies before considering key elements of the CSCF. A large part of the day was spent considering concepts from a PYP perspective and what this means for Christian Studies. Teachers collaboratively explored CC1: Christians believe the Bible is God’s Word – using a conceptual lens to identify the main concepts for different bands, the associated questions for students, and examples of evidence of learning by the students. It is anticipated that this approach will be valuable for future collaborative planning of Christian Studies.
