A Shout Out About Teaching For Artistic Behaviour [Tab], Valerie Clark Aug 2018

A Shout Out About Teaching For Artistic Behaviour [Tab], Valerie Clark

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

I never, ever, thought I’d be that teacher—the

one you hear screaming at the kids in their class

from half a mile away—until I became one.

I’m not a shouter. At least I wasn’t a shouter

until, after over 20 years teaching in high

schools, I began working as a specialist art

teacher in a primary school.

How did I move from good behavioural

management strategies and a working pedagogy

in the high school art room to bored, noncompliant

behaviour in the primary school? How

did I find my way back from hating art classes ...


Establishing Personal Ethics: Modelling Principles Of Spiritual Leadership For A Christian Educator, Richard L. Green Nov 2017

Establishing Personal Ethics: Modelling Principles Of Spiritual Leadership For A Christian Educator, Richard L. Green

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Spiritual leadership for a college instructor relies upon developing certain principles that can only be derived from God. I assessed the value of many possible principles upon which anyone could draw to foster the necessary traits of a successful spiritual leader from God’s viewpoint. The outcome was the creation of a visual tool to illustrate the principles and their relationship to one another (Figure 1), which is then explained in detail. The evolution of this illustrative concept continued even during the writing process and was revised more than once until finalized into its current form. Submission to God is ...


The Application Of Multiple Intelligences In Two Year 7 Textile Technology Classes, Brianna Cameron, Gail Ormsby, Peter Kilgour Jan 2014

The Application Of Multiple Intelligences In Two Year 7 Textile Technology Classes, Brianna Cameron, Gail Ormsby, Peter Kilgour

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

In a teaching and learning environment that

embraces innovation, inclusion and effectiveness,

it is essential to acknowledge students’ individual

learning styles to promote optimum learning.

While multiple intelligences (MI) theory considers

students’ interest, it has been more often applied

in teaching mathematics, science and music

subjects. This study applied the theory of MI within

two year seven textile technology classes. Data

were collected from student group assessments,

surveys and daily engagement levels. The results

of the study show that groups whose members

shared similar MI reported having a more positive

experience than groups that were not specifically

MI assigned. Further ...

The Relationship Between School Climate And Student Bullying, Kevin Petrie Jan 2014

The Relationship Between School Climate And Student Bullying, Kevin Petrie

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

This study investigates the relationship between

student perceptions of school climate and self reported

bullying between students. Data were

collected from 604 students in 59 regular grade

5-6 classrooms, within 20 state schools in Victoria,

Australia. A significant negative relationship was

found between measures of positive school climate

and the prevalence of student peer bullying.

Implications for classroom teachers and school

administrators are discussed. The importance of

measuring and monitoring students’ involvement

in bullying and perceptions of school climate is

emphasised.


Research: What Potential Does It Hold For Teacher Practitioners?, Anthony Williams, Peter Kilgour Jan 2014

Research: What Potential Does It Hold For Teacher Practitioners?, Anthony Williams, Peter Kilgour

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

The teaching profession finds itself at the crossroads

at this time. because the crowded curriculum

and the emphasis on core competencies including

literacy and numeracy can have the tendency to push

research training into the background. The question

should be asked though, is research capability a skill

practicing teachers should be engaging with? Is

reconstructing the curricula of universities to make

research preparation a priority worth pursuing?

The following paper considers the issue of research

and what it can add to teacher practitioners’ “arsenal”

of capabilities. The authors believe that there is value

in reconsidering the curriculum of teachers, as ...


Is Christian Education Really 'Ministry'?, Don Roy Jan 2013

Is Christian Education Really 'Ministry'?, Don Roy

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Christian education is replete with terms and expressions that purportedly describe its character—‘Christ-centred education’, ‘teaching from a Christian perspective’, ‘Biblebased curriculum’, ‘redemptive discipline’, ‘servant ministry’, and so on. They are typically spontaneous expressions. To Christian educators, it seems a reasonable and proper way to describe the enterprise in which they are engaged. While each term or expression has particular connotations, the ideas they represent cluster around the notion of what constitutes ‘ministry’. It is not uncommon to hear Christian education referred to as ‘the ministry of teaching’. But is it just fanciful jargon and cliché? Or is Christian education ...
