'A teacher's ambition is to open the world up to their pupils. A teacher who is a Christian wants to help their pupils see how God is involved in this process. Graham Coyle's book is written from the experience of over 30 years of trying to do this. Using engaging stories and biblical insights, he helps the reader explore God's purpose for Christians who teach, and reflect on how much God wants to be involved in their work as a teacher.'

Product Description
In Teaching and Christian Practices several university professors describe and reflect on their efforts to allow historic Christian practices to reshape and redirect their pedagogical strategies. Whether allowing spiritually formative reading to enhance a literature course, employing table fellowship and shared meals to reinforce concepts in a pre-nursing nutrition course, or using Christian hermeneutical practices to interpret data in an economics course, these teacher-authors envision ways of teaching and learning that are rooted in the rich tradition of Christian practices, as together they reconceive classrooms and laboratories as vital arenas for faith and spiritual growth.

Renewing the Mind: A Reader in the Philosophy of Catholic Education https://transformingteachers.org/index.php?option=com_booklibrary&Itemid=136&task=view_bl&id=9&catid=55 Authors:
ISBN: 0813227313
Publisher: The Catholic University of America Press
Publication date: 2016-04-29 18:29:56
Language: English
Price: 23.66


Product Description
No other living tradition has been thinking about thinking longer than the Catholic Church. With carefully selected readings from classical, patristic, medieval, modern, and contemporary sources, Renewing the Mind proposes the Catholic tradition as the noblest and best hope for a recovery of humane learning in our time. Edited by theologian and philosopher Ryan N.S. Topping, this anthology draws from a range of classical and contemporary philosophers - from Plato and Aristotle, Augustine and Aquinas, Newman to Chesterton to Benedict XVI - to reconstruct and illustrate the enduring vitality of the Catholic tradition of thinking about thinking. Parts One, Two, and Three take up the essential characteristics which define all learning activity: its purpose (or end), its form and content (or curriculum), and its method (or pedagogy). With an eye to meeting the challenge of the present crisis in education, Part Four illustrates the contemporary renewal of Catholic education. Included are selections that speak not only to liberal or general education but to a variety of contexts in which Catholics are called to study or teach: at home, at school, in college, or in the seminary. Renewing the Mind includes an introductory essay on the history and renewal of Catholic education, followed by 38 selections each with an introduction, biography, and study questions; adorning the text throughout are illustrations from the National Gallery of Art. Educators of children and college students will find this an essential guide to the best of what has been said about what it means to be conformed to the mind of Christ.

Publisher: Apollos

“Agenda for Educational Change will interest all who have a concern for the interaction between the theory of education and the religious dimension of life. It arises out of an international consultation which took place at Stapleford House Education Centre.

The book identifies and addresses educational issues that are of key significance for the next decade—issues that reverberate across the world:

  • The challenge of educational change
  • Liberalism, pluralism and education
  • Education and the whole person
  • Rethinking curriculum and the schooling paradigm
  • Constructive dialogue for common ground

Underpinning the discussion is a considered and far-reaching response to contemporary theories of knowledge and faith, essential to any forward-looking education enterprise.”

Christians as Teachers: What Might It Look Like? https://transformingteachers.org/index.php?option=com_booklibrary&Itemid=136&task=view_bl&id=18&catid=55 Authors: Geoff Beech
ISBN: 9781498229463
Publisher: Wipf and Stock
Publication date: 2016-02-26 00:41:23
Language: English
Price: 16.11



Product Description
How does teaching Christianly differ from other forms of teaching? How might a Christian teach, in a biblical way, some commonplace set of facts from a mandated secular curriculum? This book considers what a biblical approach to teaching may involve as it emerges from a biblically grounded life and what that might look like in the classroom. Rather than speaking of integration of faith and learning, it starts from a foundation of Christ, the Truth and Lord of all, and moves to the development of a framework for classroom practice that includes a need to try to see things from God's perspective. All truly Christian education is seen, therefore, as a profoundly biblical pursuit leading to the revelation of God. To do this, the book explores the underlying theology and principles out of which our education should flow. These principles then allow us to examine such areas as the consideration of a Christian way to teach subjects such as geography and mathematics, or even what might be distinctive about the way a Christian teacher may do something as mundane as picking up a pencil.

ISBN: 0615335993
Publisher: Novare Science and Math
Publication date: 2015-04-10 01:31:13
Language: English
Price: 17.00



Product Description
From the forward by Charles T. Evans: This book is written for teachers of science. If you teach in a Christian school, Mays will help you to bring together the underlying theological issues that arise in science with a method that improves your students' grasp of the discipline and their competence in applying it. Even if you don't teach in a Christian school, this book can provide a roadmap out of the malaise of teaching science with little discernible effect on the majority of students. But this is also a book for people who care deeply about Christian education, generally. Mays blends pre-modern ideas about the natural world with disciplined attention to standard scientific practices. He defines what the goals of teaching science should be. And he clearly knows what he is talking about. From Teaching Science so that Students Learn Science: "Many students complete their high school programs knowing very little about science. Of course, this problem in not at all unique to Christian schools, but represents an educational crisis affecting our entire nation and threatening our technological leadership. This needs to change, and I have written this book in an effort to summarize pedagogical principles that are effective in enabling change to happen in the way our students are taught science and what they are expected to learn. Chapter titles: 1. Core Principles for Instruction in Science 2. Truth and Facts 3. What is Science? 4. The Cycle of Scientific Enterprise 5. Verbal Matters 6. Quantitative Matters 7. Science as a Cumulative Discipline 8. Grammar School and the Science Curriculum 9. Laboratory Work and Lab Reports 10. Making History Work in Your High School Class 11. Dealing with Evolution

Walking with God in the Classroom presents a comprehensive view of teaching and learning. It discusses common views of teaching and describes a Christian alternative. It also develops a model of learning based on a Biblical view of the person. The author shows that knowledgge cannot be value-free and must lead to commitment and service. He uses this to show how Christian teachers can plan their day-to-day programs. The book gives many suggestions and examples for topics such as classroom atmosphere, discipline, and student evaluations.

The book is of interest to practising and prospective Christian teachers. It may be used as a textbook in college education courses, or as a discussion guide for groups of teachers in, for instance, Christian schools.”

Now that other religions have been forced out of the educational arena, Secular Humanism has been granted privileged access to government-sanctioned schools while claiming to be morally neutral, scientifically derived, and educationally fruitful.

Language: English
Price: 6.98



Product Description
The Bible admonishes Christians to love God with the mind as well as with the heart. Engaging God's World clearly links this scriptural mandate with the pursuit of academic life, extolling the crucial role of Christian higher education in the intellectual and spiritual formation of believers.Chiefly intended to serve as a primer for students beginning college careers but valuable to thoughtful Christians at every stage of life, this volume spells out the central themes of the Christian faith from a Reformed perspective. More important, however, the book shows how Christian higher education fits inside a view of the world and of human life that is formed by these ideas."Learning, " Cornelius Plantinga writes, "is a spiritual calling; properly done, it attaches us to God." Approaching the topic of education from a variety of angles, Plantinga shows that Christ-centered learning teaches people to correctly see the world as God's creation, to see providence in history, to handle secular knowledge critically, to develop good judgment and, ultimately, to use faith-filled learning in the service of God's kingdom.

Product Description
Nurturing Christians as Reflective Educators is a scholarly journal-- proceedings of the Second Biennial Symposium for Christian Professional Education Faculty from Across North America. The 25 chapters are the edited versions of the schlarly presentations given by the authors about how it is that teachers are prepared to serve the schools of North America but done so distinctly from a Christian wordlview perspective.

This represents ongoing research by this group of faculty who meet every two years to present latest results and then publish an additional journal, thus building the collection of scholarly literature on how to nurture and develop teachers who "teach Christianly." Indeed, "teaching Christianly" has become a term in North American Educational circles because of the work of this group and its members over the last ten years.
