Celebrating NWCSI Schools – 2

The Evergreen Campus of Lynden Christian Schools 

Evergreen is offering a Spanish Immersion Program preschool through grade one. Here’s what they say:evergreen

“Along with our excellent traditional Christian education, Evergreen Christian offers a Spanish Immersion program in our Threes & Fours Preschool, Kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms. The program will grow by adding a grade each year. In middle school students will take some of their content courses in Spanish, to maintain their Spanish language skills, while still rotating classes with their traditional English classmates. This program is designed to immerse students in the Spanish language while maintaining a high-quality, Christ-centered education.

What is Immersion?

  • A research-based, proven method of educating children by immersing them in a second or “target” language so they become fully bilingual.
  • The classroom environment becomes the setting for language acquisition through core subject content instruction, educational discourse, and social interactions.

How does it work?

  • Students begin their immersion experience in preschool, kindergarten, or first grade. . .” Read more

” The Prize Is Virtue: Subject Teaching and Character Development”

“The Prize is Virtue: Subject Teaching and Character Development” – found at http://www.whatiflearning.com/big-picture/virtues – is a very interesting discussion of how classroom practices can help develop virtues or unwittingly promote vices. This is one of several important articles found on the http://www.whatiflearning.com/big-picture website. I encourage you to explore this resource.

 

“What If Learning arises out of the Charis Project on spiritual and moral development in schools, which was based at the Stapleford Centre in the 1990s and out of more recent work on teaching and Christian practices based at the Kuyers Institute. It has been developed to support schools that aspire to offer a distinctively Christian teaching and learning experience.”
