Plummer, Kenneth; Taeger, Stephan; Burton, Melissa – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
Student learning in religious educational settings is subject to the same pedagogical forces, both effective and ineffective, as found in secular settings. Lectures, readings, assignments, testing and other activities associated with typical instruction, while of some value, tend to leave students with knowledge that is mostly fragmented. In this…

Hankela, Elina – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
A lively conversation has arisen in recent years among theologians concerning ethnographic theology. While liberation theologians have scarcely participated in it, an emphasis on lived experience -- which ethnography aims to understand -- lies at the heart of theologies of liberation. This article addresses the question of employing ethnographic…

Mikles, Natasha L. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
While many college courses on "world religions" have as their foundation an assortment of institutionally-authoritative, primary sources selected from a canon of sacred texts, this paper argues for a critical reevaluation of such textually-based teaching methodologies in light of the religious literacy standards set by the American…

Robina-Ramírez, Rafael; Cotano-Olivera, Cecilio – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
Religious schools in Spain and Italy have been focused for centuries on spreading the Bible's message among students. In the beginning of the sacred scriptures, there is a mandate to protect nature as God's steward of creation; however, that reality has played a secondary role amongst believers and educational institutions. 180 Spanish and 135…

Umashankar, Rachana Rao – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2020
The Qur'an in the Islamic tradition, understood as the veritable word of God addressed directly to Muhammad, is much more than sacred text: it is the embodiment of the divine in humanity's midst. This understanding has impacted how Muslims engage with it, resulting in what I term the "multisensory engagement with the Qur'an." That is,…

We are living through a time of uncertainty and change in which our educational priorities can be re-ordered. A time during which what it means to teach and learn in theology and religious studies can be a vivid and powerful resource to our wider contexts. We are living in a time of context collapse. Narrative is one key route to engaging and…

Nguyen, Martin – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2019
The need to confront issues of race and white supremacy in our teaching of religion is critically important, but through the pedagogical convention of naming, we take the first step in inviting our students to understand the hows and whys of it. I will explore the ways that Charles Long's theory of signification and counter-signification can be…
