Australia's Medical Marijuana Subterfuge, Gary Christian Jul 2016

Australia's Medical Marijuana Subterfuge, Gary Christian

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

It is a little known fact that medical cannabis has been legally available on prescription from General Practitioners for more than 18 years in Australia. The curious media calls to ‘legalise’ an already legal medication has generated the illusion that medical cannabis has always been as illegal as its recreational use, and that State and Federal Governments really do need to make the legality of medical cannabis a reality. So why has the Australian media almost uniformly been keeping the Australian public in the dark about the already legal status of medical cannabis, and why has it campaigned so strongly ...


Teaching With Interactive Simulations: One Small Contribution Toward Science Education For All, David R. Geelan Jul 2016

Teaching With Interactive Simulations: One Small Contribution Toward Science Education For All, David R. Geelan

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Many of the greatest challenges facing humanity in coming decades have a scientific component: energy needs, disease pandemics, water and food security, climate change, machine intelligence and many not yet imagined. The tendency has been to assume that the solutions to these challenges will be developed by scientists, engineers and technologists, but it is increasingly important that all citizens have sufficient understanding of science to participate in the democratic processes that are necessary to address major issues. Enhancing the science education of all citizens is a huge challenge in itself, and will require a very wide range of strategies and ...

Understanding History: Seventh-Day Adventists And Their Perspectives, Daniel Reynaud Jul 2016

Understanding History: Seventh-Day Adventists And Their Perspectives, Daniel Reynaud

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

History is never abstract. It is always the story of how we came to believe and act the way we do today. Understanding the history of a particular denomination can transform discussions of contemporary issues from divisive stonethrowing to a more sensitive awareness of how and why certain beliefs and practices are current, or are currently under threat of change. And a knowledge of a Seventh-day Adventist understanding of history explains a great deal about the church and touches on many of the key conflicts and controversies that have affected, and currently affect, the church. Hence, it is topical for ...


Let Me Do It And I Will Learn: Investigating Three Models Of Student-Centred Learning, Neroli Dobson, Peter W. Kilgour Jul 2016

Let Me Do It And I Will Learn: Investigating Three Models Of Student-Centred Learning, Neroli Dobson, Peter W. Kilgour

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Three techniques that foster student-centred learning were trialed in Year 10 English and History classes at a small Queensland school. These included the Socratic Seminar, the Graffiti Model and the Pirozzo Matrix. It was found that each of these methods created discussion, involvement, cooperation and learning at many levels. Ideas were shared by students, all students became involved and differentiation of learning was made possible. Overall there was a greater level of cooperation within the class.

Beyond Telling: Narrating Trauma In The Wartime Writings Of Great War Chaplain William Mckenzie, Daniel Reynaud, Paul Bogacs, Carolyn Rickett

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

In a centenary period of Anzac celebration that is often given to the valorising of soldiers’ heroic experiences of the First World War, this article introduces teachers to a case study of William McKenzie. Once a house-hold name, the legendary Salvation Army Chaplain of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) McKenzie documented his responses to the trauma of war in his prolific letters and diaries. Drawing heavily on primary sources, this article suggests that McKenzie’s story recaptures the essence of what it means to be Christian educators: being engaged in the midst of suffering, disarray and confusion. In the variety ...

Holistic School Improvement: The Journey In Australian Adventist Schools, Daryl Murdoch Jul 2016

Holistic School Improvement: The Journey In Australian Adventist Schools, Daryl Murdoch

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

This organisational journey traces transition from an initial recognition of an archaic ‘inspectorial model’ of school evaluation to an encompassing holistic school improvement process. A description of how the world’s best practice informed this challenge for schools to engage in further strengthening of their professional learning cultures includes the development of consultation, structures, procedures, policy and process. Key changes emerged that have resulted in a self evaluation process that is internally driven, focused on a culture of improvement and excellence (The Community of Faith and Learning), but supported by the whole system. This support is represented within A Model ...


Irlen Syndrome: Why The Cool Coloured Shades?, Melissa Heine, Bradley Martin, Marion Shields Jul 2016

Irlen Syndrome: Why The Cool Coloured Shades?, Melissa Heine, Bradley Martin, Marion Shields

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

In a world of inclusive education and assistive technologies, it is more important than ever to ensure every member of the class is given the opportunity of a sound education. This may present a challenge when almost every classroom includes students with additional and specific needs. MISViS (Meares-Irlen Syndrome Visual Stress) is one example of a learning disability that will require additional accommodations, but can be readily managed once a teacher is familiar with the individual’s needs.
