Lesson Design and Biblical Reasoning for Homeschool Parents
Heidemann, Lynn Michelle
Online Submission
The purpose of this thesis was to create a lesson design to train parent/educators in the art of preparing lessons incorporating biblical reasoning throughout all subjects. It is an introductory seminar and not intended to provide complete training in this area. A sample group of parent educators were made available to pilot the program. Among these parents were two parents who were well seasoned in homeschooling their children, but had no experience with writing their own lesson plans. Their practice had been to use prewritten plans for their school programs. There were other parents just beginning to homeschool their children. Additionally, there was one couple who had not made the decision to school at home. This couple came to gain an idea of how to go about planning lessons should they choose to take the option of schooling at home. A PowerPoint[R] presentation of individual concepts was made for each session. There were times allowed for question and answer, and times allowed for practice and examining of materials. Results of the feedback provided by the parents indicated that this lesson design was effective, but more time was needed for guided practice as the parents research and write their own lesson plans. It is suggested that, for this seminar to be completely effective, subsequent meetings be made available for learners to have the opportunity to plan together and share ideas. There is a further need for additional seminars to be held exploring these concepts in greater detail. A possible answer to the need for more practice could be ongoing work groups. Included in this lesson design are a summary of the research supporting integration of faith and learning, the PowerPoint[R] slides used to teach each portion of the seminar, notes pages to aid the learner in the taking of notes, and sample lesson plans written within this method.
