This is a senior-level block class designed for elementary and secondary education majors. Junior students may take the course as well at the discretion of the instructor. The primary emphases are: 1) examining and testing modalities of students; 2) examining the various methods of teaching that may be utilized in the classroom and that Christ utilized; 3) studying the areas of the brain and how they relate to modes of learning and memory; and 4) developing lessons to make learning “stick” better, meaning the knowledge and skills taught are more readily remembered by the student. Assignments include reading the course text, comparing portions of the text to Scripture, writing a paper explaining learning modalities, and writing detailed lesson plans that exhibit a “sticky” learning paradigm.

Practical Teaching Methods

This is a senior-level block class designed for elementary and secondary education majors. Junior students may take the course as well at the discretion of the instructor. The primary emphases are: 1) examining and testing modalities of students; 2) examining the various methods of teaching that may be utilized in the classroom and that Christ utilized; 3) studying the areas of the brain and how they relate to modes of learning and memory; and 4) developing lessons to make learning “stick” better, meaning the knowledge and skills taught are more readily remembered by the student. Assignments include reading the course text, comparing portions of the text to Scripture, writing a paper explaining learning modalities, and writing detailed lesson plans that exhibit a “sticky” learning paradigm.

Introduction to Dispensationalism

Dispensationalism is a theological system borne out of the literal, historical-grammatical interpretation. At its core, Dispensationalism understands that there is a distinction between Israel and the Church and understands the purpose of God in this earth to be doxological. This class will investigate the theological framework of this system, explaining its origins, and its developments. Additionally, it will present a case for declaring this system the most consistent hermeneutical tool in studying the Scriptures.
