Overview

In the decade of social reorganization and reorientation, it seems that all values and social standards are open for review and re-certification. Schools are far from immune to the resulting political conflict and multiple polarization that sometimes results in violent controversy. In the Spring of 1994 teacher-educators from representative institutions within the Christian College Coalition met to consider the question: Just what is it that Christian colleges of education should do in preparing teachers for the nation's schools? This well-constructed volume begins to answer that question. Contents: Teaching Teachers to Teach Christianly; To Teach Christianity or to Teach Christianly: That is the Question!; The Role, Content, and Structure of a General Curriculum Course in Educating Prospective Teachers; Learning to Teach Elementary Mathematics with a Christian Worldview; Imaging God and Effectively Teaching Reading: Teachers as Reflective Practitioners; Reflection on Exceptionality: Toward an Inclusive Worldview; Reflective Infusion in Christian College Teacher Preparation; Encouraging Critical Thinking: Asking and Allowing Good Questions; Teachers as Articulate Artisans; The What, Why, and How of Reflectivity: Rhetorical Specification, Decoding, and Christ's Love.
