Emerging Responsibilities, Emerging Persons: Reflective and Relational Religious Education in Three Episcopal High Schools
Geiger, Matthew W.
Religious Education, v111 n1 p10-29 2016
Based in an ethnographic project involving three Episcopal Church-affiliated high schools, this article considers how reflective and relational pedagogy influenced students' personal growth in religious education classes. Students became self-responsible for their spiritual development in the school settings where the practice of "notebooking" (similar to "journaling") was robustly relational and nurtured emergent personhood. The results of the project suggest that religious educators will benefit from reflecting on the nature and function of relationality, personae, and personhood in religious education praxis.
