Topic: Flexible learning for disabled students
A thorough review of the research was conducted to identify studies that explore professional development activities that foster a biblical worldview in K-8 Christian school teachers. This chapter will provide an overview on the existing literature pertaining to the study. The first section will discuss the theories selected as a framework and how they relate to the central phenomenon.
The second section will synthesize the recent literature pertaining to professional development activities followed by studies on K-8 Christian schools. Finally, the review will consider studies regarding biblical worldview development, with a focus on K-8 Christian school teachers. After reviewing the literature, a gap in the literature will emerge and provide a focused area of need for this study.
Professional development activities are a focus of both public and private schools. With increased accountability demanded from agencies and parents, providing effective programs with quality teachers is a top priority of school leaders. Professional development is used in schools to help build instructional pedagogy, learn best practices, and keep up with the growing demands of education.
Christian schools feel the same challenges as public and charter schools in offering quality PD. Historically, Christian schools have received negative perceptions as being low in academic rigor, and parents may no longer place the spiritual formation of their child as a reason to select a Christian school.
Today, parents desire quality academic programming with a BW in order that their child compete as a 21st-century learner. Therefore, Christian schools must seek PD activities which keep up with best practices and push their teachers towards academic rigor and provide opportunities that foster a biblical worldview in their teachers.
A gap in the literature exists. Little to no study has been conducted to explore professional development activities that foster a biblical worldview in K-8 Christian school teachers. Thus, this study is necessary to provide Christian education stakeholders with relevant information.
This study aims to discover valuable information in efforts for K-8 Christian schools to better foster a biblical worldview in their teachers and staff. With little to no studies focused on K-8 Christian schools, this study will be a much-needed addition to the empirical research currently available.
