Becoming Co-Authors: Toward Sharing Authority in Religious Education
Kim, Hyun-Sook
Religious Education, v104 n5 p479-491 2009
This article offers an alternative model, the model of shared authority, to the traditional, authoritarian model for authority and obedience for Religious Education. This model moves away from the authoritarian model of a teacher as the authority and the students as obedient listeners in the direction of a shared authority model in which teachers and students participate in learning as partners, in other words, "to become co-authors." (Contains 2 figures and 4 footnotes.)
