Provocative Pedagogy, or Youngsters Need the Brain to Challenge Worldview Formation
ter Avest, Ina; Bertram-Troost, Gerdien; Miedema, Siebren
Religious Education, v107 n4 p356-370 2012
Brains and gender, separately and in their interrelatedness, are hot items today in popular journals and academic literature. It is in particular the complexity of the interdependence of physical-, psychological-, and contextual-related developments of feminization in education that we focus on these contributions. We argue that a combination of recent findings of brain research and Marcia's psychological model of identity development in a "provocative pedagogy"--combining youngsters' (boys and girls) need for exploration, console, and support--is a promising "stepped care" strategy for religious development of youngsters in a multicultural and multireligious context.
