What Do We Want Students to Look Like?
We have about 50-75 hours a year to impact students. That is really very little time when you think about it. So the answer to the question what do we want our students to look like or be when they graduate is really important. It is easy for us to get side tracked by many things that we would love for them to know but what are the things we think they must know and we believe if they leave for college without them they may not stay true to God? How much time are we spending on these concepts and truths?
I think it is so easy for us to want to tell students so many things that we may not emphasize and pass on the important things. When we set out to do our curriculum it is imperative that we explore what we want our students to become and then teach on those things. If we are not intentional then we are hoping it turns out well.
