Religious Education Person to Person: Attending to Relationality
Geiger, Matthew W.
Religious Education, v110 n2 p162-180 2015
Based in an ethnographic project involving three Episcopal high schools, five teachers, and roughly three-dozen students, this article addresses the importance of personal and relational pedagogy for spiritual growth in youth. Grounded in interview conversations with students and teachers, the results of the collaborative project suggest that personal spiritual and religious formation is both a reality and an open possibility in an academic setting through relational educative practices.
