And It Was Good provides sample lessons that fully integrate the Christian faith with science and engineering instruction. The lessons provide a template for teaching that can be used with any science curriculum, Christian or secular.
The product grew from research and discussions with teachers and administrators on ways Christian Schools International can continue to provide high quality science education materials to our member schools.
In the spring of 2012 the product development team hosted a focus group at the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) conference with member school science teachers from across the US and Canada to review our current science curriculum materials and discuss possible directions for the future.
In the spring of 2013 the product development team attended the NSTA conference to learn more about the roll out of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). A follow-up survey to member and non-member schools about interest in a science worldview resource pointed to an opportunity for CSI regarding the development of science supplements that can be used in Christian schools.
This resource was developed in order to combine the strong biblical worldview foundation for which our curriculum is praised with current trends and standards in science education.
