This 3.5 hour professional development seminar is not about “education theory.” You’ll learn practical ways to appropriately and lawfully include teaching about the Bible and Christianity as it relates to history, culture, and values across the curriculum.

You’ll also receive the latest updates on federal and state religious liberty issues affecting students and teachers.

A certificate for 3.5 hours of CEU’s will be provided.

AGENDA

8:30AM Doors Open - Registration/Breakfast

For twenty-nine years as a teacher, I did not know what I was allowed to do regarding the Bible, Christianity, and religious expression. Then I got a hold of Gateways’ material. What I learned revolutionized my teaching!

  • THE SEPARATION OF CHURCH & STATE - How it applies and does not apply in schools

  • ACADEMICALLY EXPECTED – Your state’s standards expect students to learn about the Bible and Christianity as it relates to history, culture, and values.

  • CULTURALLY ACCURATE – Statistics on America’s religious culture
