Comprehensive and up-to-date, Transformational Teaching provides a survey of instructional design and effective pedagogy that incorporates a biblical worldview throughout, making it especially useful for education courses at Christian colleges, Christian teachers who desire further training or ACSI certification, and homeschooling parents using a faith-based curriculum.
The book explores philosophical and psychological foundations underlying teaching approaches, interprets the latest findings in neurological and educational research, and weaves InTASC standards throughout select chapters. Additionally, the final section is devoted to specific disciplines to offer strategies for effective teaching and faith integration in each subject area.
Most chapters also feature a worldview foundations section, current research on best practices, case studies, and challenges for reflection and application.
Written by authors with more than a century of combined teaching experience, including K-12 classrooms in both public and Christian schools, higher education, online instruction, and international training conferences, Transformational Teaching sets a new standard for teacher training that is specifically geared to a Christian educator.
