Using Holidays to Teach Spiritual Truth

by Milton V. Uecker, Ed.D.December and the Advent season hold special memories for me. These are memories not only from my childhood, but of the meaningful Advent celebrations spent among the children at Norfolk Christian Schools.  Throughout my years as elementary principal, I was mindful of the importance of leading the children in their preparation to celebrate the birth of Jesus. The month was always centered on a theme with four related chapels leading up to Jesus’ birthday party. Children…See More

Child Development

by Dr. Milton V. UeckerPart 7 of 8Physical DevelopmentMotor DevelopmentThe early childhood years include three of four phases of motor development. Growth or change can be observed across three types of movements---stability, locomotor, and manipulative (Gallahue & Ozmun, 1989, p. 82). Stability involves the child’s movement in response to balance or equilibrium. Locomotor movement is movement that leads to a change in the body’s location (i.e., walking, running, skipping) and manipulative…See More

Child Development

By Milton V. Uecker, Ed.D.Part 5 of 8 part seriesCognitive DevelopmentLiteracy DevelopmentThrough a process similar to talking, a child progresses through stages of symbol identification (reading) and symbol production (writing).  The child who is read to often realizes that symbols represent reality.  No sooner has the child begun to talk than he or she recognizes the golden arches and other common symbols.  By age three they understand that print has meaning and the child may tell the story…See More

Child Development

By Milton V. Uecker, Ed.D.Part 4 of 8 part seriesCognitive DevelopmentLanguage DevelopmentThe differences between the major cognitive theorists are illustrated when addressing the question of how language is acquired. The behaviorist sees language learning as the result of verbal approximations that are reinforced by parents and other care providers.  As words and sentences emerge, rewarded language is reinforced and repeated.  Over time one’s language develops.  The social learning theorist…See More

Planning to Promote Biblical Integration

Week 9by Dr. Milton UeckerQuestion 7:  How do the biblically integrated concepts and ideas from within this study impact the way I live? Integration is not complete until the student has related the implications of the Truth to his or her life.  Through obedience to the Truth, the life of the learner is transformed.  The ultimate end of integration is the answer to the Francis Schaeffer’s well known question, “How Then Shall We Live?”  All learning must be connected to real life and, most…See More

Planning to Promote Biblical Integration

Week 7by Dr. Milton Uecker5. Does the material present opportunities to discuss character?  Moral choices?Perhaps one of the most common means of biblical integration is related to literature and historical narrative.  Centered upon questions related to values and right and wrong, literature at all levels provides examples and non-examples of character and moral choices.  As teachers lead children through the process of uncovering the protagonist, antagonist and other supporting characters…See More

Can I design my first week of class to address worldview and other theoretical foundations for thinking within the discipline?Every course of study should begin with examining the impact of the fall on knowledge and ethics within the discipline.  In order to do this one must first think through the discipline from a biblical perspective.  Is there a Christian…See More
