Wondering about the Bible with Children encourages natural curiosity and wonder as they read the biblical faith stories.This book addresses the following questions:

  • How do we talk about miracle stories, healing stories, and the creation stories? What about violence?
  • What's my role in helping children learn about the Bible and feel comfortable asking questions about what they read?
  • When kids ask about the relevancy of the Bible for today, what do we say?
  • How we read and interpret the Bible with children may mean the difference between whether or not it will continue to be an important source for their faith development as they become young adults. We want to teach them in ways that they don't have to unlearn later.

    Written by an expert in children's ministry as a guide for anyone helping with the Celebrate Wonder Sunday school curriculum; however, it is relevant for all adults who want to explore ways to help children read, engage, wrestle, and grow into deeper understanding of the Bible. Wondering about the Bible with Children is for those who come to the Bible with souls open to be fed and who want their children to seek faith and wisdom.

    This revised and expanded second edition of Created to Learn--an ECPA Gold Medallion Award finalist--shows teachers how to organize and tailor classroom instruction to fit the learning styles of their students. In a real sense, author William R. Yount takes the theories of teaching and learning and brings them to life inside the classroom. Additional content in this updated edition includes:

    - More information on new reasearch into learning theories, including discoveries in the field of neuroscience that provide far more detail about brain function.

    - New chapters on Constructivism and brain-based learning.

    - Updated research from Yount's teaching experiences in other countries.

    - Full rewrite of original text, condensing material that has moved into other books, removing data found to be less helpful, and adding research that provides support for evolving ideas about cognitive and humanistic learning theory systems, designing instructional objectives, and the revolution in brain science.

    Creative Teaching Methods

    $26.99
    Do you ever wonder why Jeffrey talks all of the time?
    Or why Toni can't sit still? Or why Alex loves work sheets?
    Or why Jordan is always trying something new?

    Each chapter is fun to read, stimulating, and immensely practical. This book is valuable to teachers, and for preachers, too.

    DIRECTOR
    CHAPEL OF THE AIR


    It's about time.
    Creative Teaching Methods is not just another book on the theory of creativity (which we don't need). Rather, it is a book on the practice of creativity in the classroom (which we desperately need). This is a book you will use over and over again.
    Creative Teaching Methods is loaded with practical and usable ideas that will make creative teaching a reality in your classroom. Without hesitation, I would recommend this book to anyone who teaches young people or adults.

    MIKE YACONELLI

    Marlene LeFever makes the principle of learning through creative participation come alive for Christian education. Creative methods are vividly and invitingly explored for their potential for deepening the spiritual life through new ways of hearing the Word of God and using heretofore untapped personal resources in responding to it. Unique in its assumption that in Christian education creativity is just as essential in work with youth and adults as it is in work with children.

    When teaching the Bible, what is the best theory, and what are the best practices to stimulate deeper student learning? Heart-Deep Teaching was written for parents, teachers, and students of the Word who desire to apply its principles in life transforming ways.

    The concept of "heart-deep teaching and learning" is based on a Hebrew understanding of the "heart" as the innermost essence of a person that involves the mind, emotions, and will. When the heart is engaged by the power of the Holy Spirit within the context of God's Word, both character and behavioral changes occur.

    To actively engage students' emotions, mind, will, and body in learning, a heart-deep teacher uses strategies involving interaction, drama, reflection, story-telling, wonder, movement, creativity, acting-out, problem-solving, and wrestling with the principles discovered in the biblical text.

    By integrating accurate methods of analyzing the biblical text and current research in teaching and learning, the book attempts to help teachers understand the theoretical and practical skills to create their own lessons, adapt lessons from published curriculums, and improve their own strategies of studying and teaching the Word.

    No one fully understands how learning works, but educational psychologists understand a great deal about what works.

    The collaborative team of Klaus Issler and Ronald Habermas has assembled an integration of theology and instructional theory in Teaching for Reconciliation: Foundations and Practice of Christian Educational Ministry. Now they expound on one aspect of educational theory/theology to help teachers choose the method that best reaches particular learners in a specific learning situation.

    How We Learn demystifies the principles of educational psychology. The book identifies:

    --means and barriers in learning

    --motivational factors that make learners receptive

    --learning's outcome in attitudes, spirituality, and behavior

    Application sections, special exercises and examples, plus dozens of figures and tables aid understanding of learning effectiveness, age-related development, individual learning style, special education, and other issues.

    We are experiencing a mentoring crisis today. One key reason is that too many women cling to an outdated formulaic idea of what mentoring is all about. When we hear the word "mentoring" we conjure up a picture that fit our experience decades ago. Then we look in the mirror and don't see an adequate mentor staring back at us. Our preconceived ideas about what today's young women want in a mentor convince us we are not qualified to be mentors--but we are wrong. What we don't realize is that younger women today are far more likely to want a relationship with that woman in the mirror than the conjured-up perfect mentor in our head.

    Organic Mentoring explores foundational issues that explain why beloved but outdated mentoring methods are no longer effective. The book looks at the cultural changes and fast-paced digital advancements that shape young thought and behavior but weaken the link between generations. It walks through the new values, preferences, ideas, and problems of the next generation and how these issues impact mentoring. Then the authors guide the reader through landmines to avoid and approaches that work today.
