Overview

Spirituality and Education introduces the basic contours of current debate in a form accessible to both classroom teachers across the curriculum range, and to school managers. It covers all key areas, including:
* problems of defining spirituality
* government legislation and supporting documentation
* relevant empirical research
* the social dimension of spirituality
* secular and religious manifestations of spirituality in contemporary society
* theories of childhood spiritual development
* contemporary approaches to spiritual education, including collective worship and cross-curricular teaching.
A variety of different perspectives and approaches will be offered, and readers are encouraged to be reflective through a number of tasks which relate all issues raised directly back to their own specific circumstances. The author includes questions, quotes and lists of further reading.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Noting that in Britain all schools are legally required to attend to the spiritual development of their pupils, Wright (King's College London) introduces some of the current debates. He discusses problems of defining spirituality; government legislation; the social dimension of spirituality; secular and religious forms of spirituality in contemporary society; different approaches to spiritual education, including school ethos, collective worship, and cross-curricular teaching; and other matters. His study seeks to further professional development, essentially at the level of the taught masters degree. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
