The Curious Christian Teacher Podcast

Interview with Chris Garner, transformational learning

June 2, 2020

In this episode, Chris Garner, a secondary HASS teacher, shares his passion for transformational education.  Chris uses the phrase, ‘breaking their hearts’ to describe the way he invites students to view learning not in a ‘safe’ academic way, but one that shapes their hearts. Students are invited to respond to issues of injustice in profoundly personal and transforming ways.  In this episode, Chris walks us through his process of unit planning using a ‘backward design’ planning approach so that threads are intentionally incorporated.
