The next CHART online seminar, scheduled for Tuesday, October 12 at 2:00 p.m. (EST), features Dan Olinger (PhD) sharing hands-on methods for teaching a biblical worldview in the homeschool. Dr. Olinger’s keen sense of humor and practical approach make this a seminar that no homeschool parent will want to miss. He plans to explain the different levels of Bible integration and the strengths and weaknesses of each. Then he will demonstrate the best method of Bible integration, using an actual math lesson.
Dan Olinger holds a PhD in Theology and is the chairman of the Division of Bible at Bob Jones University. He spent nearly twenty years at BJU Press, where he did writing, editing, management, and strategic planning. He teaches a course at BJU on biblical integration across the academic subjects and regularly leads BJU’s summer mission team to Africa. He and his wife, Pam, have two daughters.
“Most homeschoolers would like some help in deciding just what constitutes a ‘Christian’ or ‘biblical’ approach to, say, math or literature,” explains Dr. Olinger. “Is math presented ‘Christianly’ if the story problems are about church socials instead of rock concerts? If we blot out the dirty words in a story, have we presented the literature from a Christian perspective? This seminar will discuss approaches to biblical integration and then lay out the basics of a biblical worldview that help a homeschool parent decide how to present the subject.”
The first CHART online seminar from BJU Press featured Bryan Smith discussing the definition and importance a biblical worldview. Homeschool parents from across the country attended and shared enthusiastic feedback after the online seminar. “This is ‘continuing education’ for the home teacher!” said Marc, an attendee from Florida. Janice from South Carolina said, “As homeschoolers, we sometimes struggle with day-to-day issues. CHART can provide information and support that we need to help us work with our students without leaving home—and it’s free!”
