Memorization and Focus: Important Transferables between Supplementary Islamic Education and Mainstream Schooling
Berglund, Jenny; Gent, Bill
Journal of Religious Education, v66 n2 p125-138 Sep 2018
This article presents the results of a participative study, involving a group of 27 British Muslim students aged 15-18, who were given the opportunity to reflect on the implications of having participated in two different 'traditions' of education: that is, Muslim supplementary education (in its various forms) and state mainstream schooling. The project was participative in that school senior managers had invited the researchers to carry out the research as part of their constant striving to identify the conditions under which students learn best. Both the design and outcomes of this research programme are presented and discussed in this article. One of the main findings is that the students experience the skills of memorization and focus as positive transferables. The findings will be discussed in terms of the concept of liturgical literacy.
