The Australian Curriculum: A Look Through The Lens Of Christian Education, Adele Faull Jan 2010

The Australian Curriculum: A Look Through The Lens Of Christian Education, Adele Faull

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

The development of the Australian Curriculum is an ambitious task that involves meeting the needs of a large range of interest groups, each with its underlying philosophy and conceptualisation of what constitutes an effective and viable curriculum. The context of independent, Christian education systems and schools adds an important dimension to a discussion of the challenges that confront teachers and administrators as we move towards the implementation of a national curriculum. The observations and questions presented in this paper are not exhaustive, but are based on seminars and consultation sessions, discussions with a variety of teachers and subject coordinators, and ...


The Revolutions We Need To Have, Bryan Cowling Jan 2010

The Revolutions We Need To Have, Bryan Cowling

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

There is no doubt that the phrase “The Education

Revolution” as distinct from ‘a revolution in

education’, coined by the ALP spin doctors

before the 2007 election, has been very effective.

Some might say it ranks alongside Gough

Whitlam’s “It’s time” as one of the most memorable

epithets in recent Australian political history.

Research in the field of psychology of religion supports John ...

Christian Schools - A World Of Difference, Don Roy Jan 2008

Christian Schools - A World Of Difference, Don Roy

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Christian education is distinctly different from other approaches to education. But knowing what that distinctiveness is and acting consistently on it is vital, for Christian schools to be authentic and to justify their existence. This article seeks to identify fundamental premises underlying Christian education; then to establish a set of ground rules for critical discussion and the development of a model to faithfully represent that enterprise. The purpose of the model is two-fold: to capture realistically the dynamic nature or ‘special character’ of Christian schools as communities of faith, and in so doing, provide a useful frame of reference for ...
