Quranic Schooling: Setting, Context and Process.
A discussion of the history, educational philosophy and teaching methods of Quranic schools is divided into two sections. The first section discusses the historical development of such schools beginning in 650 A.D. with their strong emphasis on verbatim mastery of text, self-paced learning, and literacy skills. The second section provides a case study of one student's recollections of initiation into schooling, the teacher-student relationship, and teaching methods. The document concludes with a list of additional papers prepared for the Project on Human Potential. A seven-page list of project research papers concludes the document. (IS)
