PERSC Resource Packet on Teaching About Biblical Literature.
Wright State Univ., Dayton, OH. Public Education Religion Studies Center.
This packet, developed by the Public Education Religion Studies Center (PERSC), provides the classroom teacher with materials which are helpful in designing and teaching courses or units on biblical literature. For a description of the purpose and activities of PERSC see related document SO 008 363. The packet contains eight articles by nationally recognized educators which provide guides, objectives, teaching techniques, and teacher resource materials for teaching the Bible as literature. Also included are bibliographies and announcements of available resources from the center. PERSC stresses three points when teaching units on biblical literature. First, courses must be fair and open to all approaches of study and interpretation. Second, teachers must be especially sensitive to the feelings and needs of students from religious groups in the minority in our society. Third, Biblical literature studies require thorough and careful research and preparation. (Author/DE)
