Teaching for Transformation (TfT) is a program that Moline Christian School has been implementing for three years in order to better live our mission "to provide a quality, Christ-centered education, equipping students for a life of service to their Lord."
The way TfT does this is by encouraging teachers to help students to "see the story, and live the story." There are 3 core practices that all teachers use to help this happen: Storyline, Throughlines, and FLEx. Storyline is a unique classroom theme that each teacher uses to bring all learning back to the overall Biblical story. Throughlines are a set of common phrases used, and each unit taught is centered around one or two ideas of how Christians are invited to live because of the Biblical story. FLEx is short for Formational Learning Experience, which are opportunities provided for students to live the ideas they have learned about in their storylines,and practice living one of the throughlines with other people.
