Experience Has Ways of Boiling over: Pursuing a Pragmatic Pedagogy of Bible
Levisohn, Jon A.
Journal of Jewish Education, v75 n3 p310-324 2009
This article builds on Greenstein's advocacy of a "pragmatic pedagogy of Bible" by pursuing four issues. First, do we select among methodological approaches to Bible according to our desired interpretive outcome but not according to any internal criteria? Is it merely a matter of "choice"? Second, in what sense are interpretive approaches usefully compared to equipment like x-rays or ultrasounds? Third, what does it mean for a methodology to generate a solution that "works"? Works for whom and for what? Fourth, what are the questions that educators ought to consider, in constructing a "pragmatic pedagogy"? (Contains 17 footnotes.)
