We’ll be talking about how to make literature come alive by organizing fun outings around books and authors you love – even if you’re not close to any “literary monuments!”

CenterForLit Director Adam Andrews led another Teachers In Service event for parents and teachers seeking to avoid the winter blues in January 2018. However, it is for any time of year when unmet goals and unfulfilled expectations threaten to sabotage your classroom. The theme is Identity, and we'll be asking and answering questions like: Where Does My Identity Come From? Who Are My Students, and Who Says? What Are My Most Important Goals? and What is the Definition of Success as a Teacher? Our aim is to remember who we really are and what we're really striving for, and to build each other up for a year full of rest and peace.
American higher education has become unfriendly territory in many ways. Some parents wonder whether they should consider sending their students to college at all. Drawing from extensive experience in higher education, CenterForLit Director Adam Andrews contemplates this all important question, suggesting ways to make the considerable benefits of a college education available to your homeschool graduates and offering valuable tips for deciding what kind of school to choose – and for avoiding the pitfalls that await the unsuspecting freshman.

In this seminar, Adam Andrews leads teachers and parents through the process of developing a personal philosophy of education over the course of four engaging sessions. These guided conversations and reflections on some of the tradition’s great works offer the encouragement and fellowship best afforded by common human experience. By meditating on the purpose of education, the teacher, the student, and practical approaches, participants will find themselves refreshed and recharged to return to their important work with peace, energy, and vision.
How do you teach your students to apply a “Christian Worldview” to the books they read, the movies they watch and the culture they live in? The answer to this important question may surprise you, for well-meaning Christians often misunderstand the basic principles of worldview analysis. This misunderstanding can prevent Christian students from thinking clearly about contemporary culture.
Adam Andrews guides a discussion about avoiding a serious (though common) teaching mistake and presents three steps for understanding a story-teller on his own terms. Be empowered to uncover, identify and evaluate an artist’s worldview for yourself – and to teach your students to do the same.
