Helping the Teachers

Today's entry was written by the BioLogos Editorial Team. You can read more about what we believe here.

On Monday, Darrel Falk addressed the need to teach children both respect for the Bible and an understanding of science. He called for concerned Christians to begin developing a curriculum that embraces the harmony of Christian faith and science. In the meantime, however, many parents may be wondering what they can do to teach their children while such a curriculum is being created.

Thankfully, there are resources already available for parents and teachers who are interested in showing their children that science and faith need not be at odds. Our Web site -- www.biologos.org -- features a section titled "Resources for Teachers", where we have gathered online materials addressing the questions of creation, origins, and science-and-religion. The section features a variety of tools including essays, guides to answering questions from students, and free videos and documentaries. We even have a link to a free online video game that introduces students to the basic ideas of Darwin's theory of natural selection!

This is, of course, just a small sampling of the many resources available to teachers and parents. If you know of any others, please be sure to share them in the comment section below. As Darrel so accurately put it yesterday, this important task begins with you.

The home influence is very critical in counteracting extreme views from an atheistic evolutionary philosophy to the literalistic, yet inaccurate, young earth creationism.  I am excited to see sdome of the resources that I know have been developed.

I cannot find this Resources for Teachers page anywhere on the site. Perhaps it has been redesigned out of existence. I am looking for recommendations of resources to use with elementary school children. Even if they are secular, but well-grounded scientifically. I use Sonlight curriculum to homeschool and am looking to replace the young earth creationist and ID books they recommend on topics such as fossils, dinosaurs, and genetics.
