Organized by BioLogos
As Christians, we believe God’s word and God’s world tell the same big, beautiful story. Yet few teens today believe science and the Bible are complementary. Now more than ever, Christian educators need to help their students see how science and faith fit together and make space for them to explore tough questions. Founded by Dr. Francis Collins, BioLogos is a Christian ministry organization that invites the church and the world to see the harmony between modern science and biblical faith. In addition to hundreds of free articles, videos, stories, and other resources used by educators around the world, BioLogos now offers INTEGRATE, a flexible teacher’s resource for exploring science from a Christian worldview. While the 15 curriculum units are organized around topics covered in a typical high school biology course, they can be paired with a variety of courses and grade levels, from middle school through college. INTEGRATE activities are great for hybrid or virtual instruction.
In this interactive event, we will (a) discuss the rationale for robust science/faith integration, (b) identify strategies and tools for effective instruction, and (c) consider potential tradeoffs, opportunities, and challenges associated with science/faith integration. We will walk through a full INTEGRATE unit so you can see how it is organized. All are welcome, but science and Bible teachers in grades 6-12 will especially benefit from the practical support this session will provide.
Join us for this FREE virtual event on Thursday, November 12 at 7:00 PM (ET). Registration is required. (Classy account creation is not required.)
