Empowering Christian teachers to train the next generation of scientists.
Anyone who teaches K–8 science in a CSI member school is welcome to apply for this professional development opportunity.
Fifty teachers of science, of all expertise levels from grades K–8, will come together in Grand Rapids, Michigan, November 17–18, 2016, for two days of instruction in Van Andel Education Institute's Community of Practice model, designed to support transformation of science teaching and learning to a practice-based culture.
CSESA is a collaborative effort of Christian Schools International, the Association for Christian Schools International, and the Van Andel Education Institute.
In the video below, the partners share their vision for the program's goal: to empower Christian school teachers to prepare their students to participate in the world of science without compromising their Christian worldview.
Most of the costs for the academy are underwritten, and there are 25 spaces reserved for CSI teachers. Learn more about the program. Application deadline is October 24.
