Their goal is to live out the legacy of service modelled by Jesus Christ.

Can Reading Adventure Packs (Raps) Complement And Enrich The Literacy Program In Your Classroom?, Barbara J. Fisher Jan 2007

Can Reading Adventure Packs (Raps) Complement And Enrich The Literacy Program In Your Classroom?, Barbara J. Fisher

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Children’s personal experience, confidence and

success (or otherwise) with books and reading,

particularly at the initial stages, is directly

related to their attitude towards reading (Wang,

2000).

Many of these attitudes are developed prior to

school commencement and often are closely linked

to early literacy experiences in the home. Economic

conditions of the household may determine

children’s exposure and access to quality reading

materials in the home. Some low-income families

fi nd it extremely diffi cult to resource their children’s

early literacy needs. While it appears that most

families are aware of the importance of the home ...

The Ministry Of Teaching, Peter Beamish

Different people want different things out of life

but one of the things that most people want is to

be happy.

This, however, can be an elusive thing. In his

recent book, Authentic happiness, Martin Seligman

explores what it takes to really make us happy.


Educational Administrators: Leaders Or Managers?, Travis Manners, Peter Morey Jan 2007

Educational Administrators: Leaders Or Managers?, Travis Manners, Peter Morey

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

The image is striking. A business man dressed

in his suit is sitting on a wooden chair that

has been placed on the pebbles very close

to the water’s edge. He has his legs crossed,

hands in his lap, shoulders back and with

an air of authority he is staring out across

the lake. In the background one can see the

mountains on the other side of the lake, giving

way to the expansive sky overhead. Words

have been overprinted in the sky which simply

read, ‘Now I invent instead of Predict. I am a

Visionary’. Underneath the image ...


‘Can I Last The Distance?’ Stress And School Leadership, Marion Shields Jan 2007

‘Can I Last The Distance?’ Stress And School Leadership, Marion Shields

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

This research study investigated how principals in a national, Christian independent school system cope with stress. Using a double-phased, mixed-methods approach combining questionnaires and in-depth interviews, school principals’ stressors and their reactions to these stressors were examined. Coping strategies used by principals to reduce or manage their stress were also explored. Forty-seven principals participated in the study and of these, 23 indicated a serious level of stress. The study highlighted a preference for using stress managers (a secondary approach), rather than stress reducers (a primary approach). Specific grouping of stressors into ten clusters suggested particular areas to be targeted for ...

Factors That Influence The Desire To Become Teachers Of Technology: An Australian Study, Ron Green, Cedric Greive

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

In this study, 337 pre-service teachers enrolled in Technology Teacher Education Programs (TTEP), in eight tertiary institutions across Australia, responded to a questionnaire seeking information about those factors that influenced their decision to become teachers of Technical and Applied Studies (TAS). The study found: a majority of the respondents were male (71%); most came from urban areas (61%); just over half (51%) entered the course from the workforce and just over a third of the respondents entered the course direct from school. Of the 172 respondents who came from the work force, a total of 93 (86 male) had prior ...


Preparing Students From A Different Culture For Examinations: A Pastoral Care Investment With Costs And Benefits, Pauline R. Potter Jan 2007

Preparing Students From A Different Culture For Examinations: A Pastoral Care Investment With Costs And Benefits, Pauline R. Potter

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

This study sought to address perceived student study skills needs, as part of a secondary school’s pastoral care program. Utilising a teacher action research approach, the inquiry focused on three main areas: investigating students’ prior study habits; the nature of existing, ineffective study habits that impaired performance; and ascertaining the impact of a study skills intervention program. Findings indicated that many students either were unaware of, or not employing, study skills. Ineffective time and self management impaired students’ study performance, possibly linked to a ‘cultural trace’. Perceived improvements in students’ study habits were reported, both by students and teachers ...
