This encyclopedia is the essential one-volume reference to faith development, classroom management, teaching methods, the Bible and curriculum, contemporary social issues, home and family, and much more. This volume provides both background and practical information and covers a wide range of material that has not been readily available before.
More than 600 articles are offered to enrich the work of educators at all levels. 'Harper's Encyclopedia of Religious Education' goes beyond simply imparting information and offers you ways of using this information in the teaching of religious education. This is evident in the number of articles on specific methods, tools, and techniques, and in the inclusion of specific suggestions for such things as classroom organisation, classroom management, appropriate age-level use of biblical materials. Charts and other illustrations add to the usefulness of this book.
