An Awareness of Spirituality from Two Perspectives
Zweiback, Yoshi; Kaplan, Sandra N.; Manzone, Jessica
Gifted Education International, v32 n3 p232-241 Sep 2016
This paper addresses the question of spirituality in a religious setting, and prayer as an expression of ultimate values, as a discipline which inspires empathy, as an instrument for connecting us with nature, and as a compass pointing us toward God, meaning, and purpose. Spirituality in the general education setting will also be discussed, as well as the relationship that exists between the skills of critical and creative thinking and the traits of spiritual intelligence. Examples will be provided on ways in which the prompts of depth and complexity can be used to provide opportunities for students to develop understanding of content, knowledge, and skills, and how these can be integrated into classroom learning experiences through questions that teachers ask students.
