Integration Of Faith And Learning: An Incidental Approach?, Barbara J. Fisher Jun 2021

Integration Of Faith And Learning: An Incidental Approach?, Barbara J. Fisher

Education Papers and Journal Articles

In recent decades the ‘Integration of Faith and Learning’ (IFL) concept and its application have prompted research, dialogue and deliberation amongst SDA academics, researchers and educators (Akers & Moon, 1980a; Korniejczuk, 1994; Nwosu, 1999; Rasi, 2013; Roy, 2001; Taylor, 2012). It is the IFL concept that makes Christian education unique. Yet, despite all the research and information available about IFL, the author has discovered that an ‘Intentional’ or an ‘Incidental’ approach to integrating faith and learning in the Christian classroom is still a topic of discussion and debate among teachers. Therefore, in this article, the author proposes that both ‘Incidental’ and ‘Intentional’ IFL ...

Reflections On Pedagogical Hospitality And Remote Learning, Kaye Chalwell Dec 2020

Reflections On Pedagogical Hospitality And Remote Learning, Kaye Chalwell

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Teaching involves teachers acting as hospitable hosts who create learning spaces that welcome their students into learning. Much of the literature on pedagogical hospitality works from the assumption that the teacher is the host and the students are the guests. However, in the period of remote learning during the Covid19 pandemic, this was turned on its head when teachers became guests as well as hosts as they “entered” their students’ homes, albeit remotely, to teach. This experience of being a guest is similar to the experience of Special Religious Education (SRE) teachers as they enter Australian Public School classrooms to ...


Teaching Challenging Children And Revealing Jesus To Them, Marion Shields Dec 2020

Teaching Challenging Children And Revealing Jesus To Them, Marion Shields

Education Book Chapters

The term ‘emotional behavioural disorder’ (EBD) emerged in the 1960s when clinicians and educators recognised that some children display extremely inappropriate behaviours which require special educational accommodations. With the 1992 Disability Discrimination Act, followed by the 2005 Disability Standards for Education, school aged children with disabilities, including EBD, began to be enrolled in regular classrooms in Australia. Studies show that students with EBD can be very challenging for teachers, even causing some to leave the teaching profession. However, a Christian classroom, with a praying, caring and competent teacher may be the very place where these children learn to adapt their ...


Christian University Teacher Education Graduates And Perceptions Of Parent Collaboration: An Exploratory Study, Marla J. Lohmann, Ruby L. Owiny Nov 2020

Christian University Teacher Education Graduates And Perceptions Of Parent Collaboration: An Exploratory Study, Marla J. Lohmann, Ruby L. Owiny

International Christian Community of Teacher Educators Journal

Effective collaboration between families and schools is an important factor when developing high quality education programs. When schools and families work together, children, families, schools, and communities all benefit. Using an online survey of students who completed teacher certification programs at two Christian universities, this study seeks to understand the way that completers from two teacher preparation programs, both at Christian universities, interact with parents and encourage collaboration and involvement. The research findings and implications for future research are discussed.

Being Outdoors: What Educators Can Learn From Cross Disciplinary Research On The Benefits Of The Outdoors On Health, Kelly Thompson Jul 2020

Being Outdoors: What Educators Can Learn From Cross Disciplinary Research On The Benefits Of The Outdoors On Health, Kelly Thompson

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

As people living in a modern world, our connection with nature is varied, which has an impact on health. This paper looks at cross-disciplinary research conducted on the impact the outdoors has on health, more specifically mental, physical, social and spiritual benefits. Results from different fields of research collectively strengthen claims made for the positive influence time outdoors has on health, and prompt educators to ask how Christian schools can take this knowledge and apply it in an educational setting for the benefit of students.

Education For What? An Essential Question Amidst The Covid-19 Crisis From An American Perspective, John Grant

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown many schools around the country into turbulent waters. In a short period of time, many K – 12 Christian schools had to transition into the alternate universe known as virtual learning. Many educators have probably dabbled in virtual learning elements as a supplement to their normal pedagogical practice. Ironically, the challenges and questions with which many schools were immediately concerned were perpetually at the doors of many schools, not just Christian schools.

Tatian And Basil: Differing Views Regarding The Pagan Educational System Of Antiquity, Scott A. Rhodes Oct 2019

Tatian And Basil: Differing Views Regarding The Pagan Educational System Of Antiquity, Scott A. Rhodes

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Advanced education for Christians of antiquity was only available through schools which used classical Greek methodology. This included literature, poetry, and philosophy closely tied to polytheistic and pagan traditions. Christian families and leaders at that time had to consider the spiritual implications of participating in such a system. This article contrasts the opinion of Tatian with that of Basil of Caesarea regarding Christian participation in pagan education.

Basil and Tatian had similar ascetic views, yet they differed on this issue. Tatian believed Christians should not take part in pagan education. Basil believed that Christians could benefit spiritually from this education ...

Are Christian Schools Really Christian? Perceptions Of Final Year Pre-Service Teachers In Australia, Beverly Christian, Peter Beamish Nov 2018

Are Christian Schools Really Christian? Perceptions Of Final Year Pre-Service Teachers In Australia, Beverly Christian, Peter Beamish

TEACH Journal of Christian Education

Final year pre-service teachers at a private provider of Christian higher education were surveyed to discover their perceptions of the special character of a wide spectrum of Australian Christian faith-based schools. They each completed an eight week placement, spread over two sessions, in a Christian school. Qualitative and quantitative data were collected through open-ended written responses and a questionnaire. The results indicated that a special Christian character was visible to the preservice teachers, with evidence that Christian worldview alignments in the areas of school culture, relationships, service and discipleship in Christian schools is easier to identify than in the learning ...


Connecting Children With God Through Nature: Why We Should And How We Can, Beverly Christian Oct 2018

Connecting Children With God Through Nature: Why We Should And How We Can, Beverly Christian

Education Book Chapters

Unrelenting rural-urban migration across the globe is resulting in the withdrawal of children from interaction with the natural world. This paper builds a case for the intentional inclusion of nature experiences in the faith education of children in a school, church or home context. It explores the role of nature in connecting children with God, and offers practical suggestions for creating spiritual moments that can enhance a child’s relationship with God as they experience the wonder of His creation.
