On Charitable Teaching
Jacobs, Alan
Journal of Education & Christian Belief, v11 n2 p13-24 2007
In earlier work on the hermeneutics of charity, the author explored the relevance of Augustine's insistence on charity in reading Scripture for interpreters of non-biblical texts. This article shows how one might bring such charitable reading into the classroom and reframe the teacher's task in its light. The article discusses some implications for our understanding of teaching "methods", close attention to students, the nature of syllabi, and the role of attentive playfulness in learning. (Contains 4 notes.)
