Covenantal Nomism

The author of this report has been charged with exploring the topic of what is known as covenantal nomism. To be a little more specific, the thesis offered and argued by J.D.G. Dunn is that the book of Galatians is Paul's first "sustained attempt" to address the subject of nomism as mentioned above. Essentially, the idea of nomism is that one has to be born into grace and into God's people. It is the opposite of legalism, which is the idea that one can choose to obey God's commandments and join others in being among other people that are likewise… Continue Reading...

Profound Lessons from Childrens Stories

Mack decided he should have rights and that is what Rosa Parks was after ( teaching Civics, 2016). Conclusion Being able to clearly and easily compared a children's story and the Civil Rights movement might seem off-putting or odd to some. However, there are things that are entirely basic and impossible to argue with and the rights of blacks as demanded by Rosa Parks and others is indeed one example. Even if there is subtlety, basic stories can teach huge lessons. References Flashinski, L. (2012). In What Light There Is: Turtles, burps and protest. Journal Times.

Children Of Divorce and How They Can Be Helped

Children, as they grow, develop the two sides of their brains -- the the thinking and logical side and the feeling and emotional side. Many times, the emotional side will take precedence over the thinking side -- for example, in the display of irrational fears, anger, jealousy or pettiness. However, stories told by adults whether orally or in various media form can help children to process information and encourage the two sides of their brains to interact. Stories… Continue Reading...

Child Psychology

What was your experience of the observation assignment? As the field of early childhood teaching works towards creating a better understanding of the learning of preschool children, my research shows that there is need for a wider scope of the work in order to accommodate more ecological assessments of a child's interactions and behavior.

Covenant Of Exodus and How to Preach It

Instead, preachers need to distill the covenant to its essence, teaching Christians about the main purposes of a covenant and how a new covenant can be formed each and every day. Obeying God's will does not require mindless ascription to outdated laws but rather, an honest self-appraisal and willingness to do God's bidding. Audiences firmly grounded in the modern world but who need a stronger spiritual connection with God can learn a lot from studying the Hebrew Bible and its codified expressions of religious law. Placing the covenant into historical and cultural context shows that it is not the… Continue Reading...

Abraham As Paradigm in the Priestly History in Genesis

-- this requirement confirmed in ritual law and here, was another exilic/postexilic indication (Blenkinsopp, 2009). Another teaching apparent in the fifth chapter, "The Purchase of a Burial Plot," revolves around Sarah's death. The tale's crux is the persistence to completely and thoroughly legalize the plot acquisition. Purchase proceedings develop in the following three stages; first, after confirming his status as an individual dwelling among the Hittites, Abraham explains his need for burial land. Reluctant to get separated from their patrimonial dominion, the request is initially deflected through flattery, followed by an offer of their best plots to bury Sarah. The… Continue Reading...

Mark and Mathews Presentation Of Jesus’ Disciples

agrees and confesses that Jesus is the Messiah, and even has an understanding of aspects of his teaching (8:29), the disciples continuously misunderstand the mission of Christ- and their own too. They also misunderstand the Jesus' message of the Kingdom and where they stand in it. In chapter 8 verse 27, the disciples are portrayed as they are preoccupied with their status in the Kingdom. They fail to progress in their understanding and faith as we move to the climax of the mission. From a literary perspective, the failure to understand (1:1-8:26) appears to intensify; which leads them to… Continue Reading...

The medieval crusades spanned roughly two centuries, from the end of the 11th century to the end of the 13th century. In the midst of that tumultuous period, when religion and Christian society were so entwined with fighting, wars, death, hostility, honor, and sacredness, St. Francis and St. Dominic emerged to preach a kind of gospel that had nearly vanished -- the kind that the early apostles had preached -- one full of fervor for God, for saintliness, for absolute… Continue Reading...

Multicultural Understanding

At the same time, a lot of what Jesus taught was a recitation or at least an echoing of what was in the New Testament. Even so, Jesus was not highly regarded by a lot of people and this would include the… Continue Reading...

What the Sistine Chapel Ceiling Represents

see serious cracks in its infrastructure (in terms of faith and teaching), Michelangelo's composition serves as a stark reminder of the basic tenets not only of the Christian faith but of the way in which an orderly society should be situated. If the modern world begins with the advent of the Protestant Reformation, Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel acts as an artistic rebuke to this push: it looks backward to the roots of Christian teaching and emphasizes the relationships that should be protected.

Justice Is Better Than Equality

same classroom and having the same teacher, their differences should be embraced as unique and teaching methods tailored to meet their individual needs. Therefore, the teachers should engage with students to redefine their basic expectations for success and fairness based on their individual differences and distinctiveness. This essentially means that fairness and success differs because every individual is unique and different. Differential instruction would be the ideal teaching style in the classroom because the teacher must think about each student. Through adopting this teaching method, the teacher will essentially re-evaluate the classroom system and adjust it accordingly to enable… Continue Reading...

Conclusion Empowerment and ensuring the three key languages (together with the local dialect) are implemented is one potential solution. I would suggest the following to promote Nigerian native language revitalization (Ofodu Graceful Onovughe, 2014): 1. The nation's federal government must revise its language policy and incorporate native languages as compulsory subjects to be taken by all Nigerian children right up to university. It must, in fact, be made a criterion for admission into Nigerian higher education institutions, besides other requirements. 2. The… Continue Reading...

Staying in a proverbial lane because of what others might think or simply because of what others are doing is something that leads to… Continue Reading...

Childrens Rights and Teacher Advocacy

getting a much clearer understanding of the correlation existing between effective teaching practices and the elements of healthy partnership with parents. Moreover, I understood what the involvement of parents could mean for their children. Anyone who promotes or supports the interests of others is an advocate, and that is what a teacher does when he/she involves both the students and their parents as active collaborators in a classroom community focused on achieving positive knowledge. Anyone who promotes a particular cause is also an advocate, and in my own opinion, every teacher should play the role of an advocate in… Continue Reading...

Role Of Confucianism in Art in China

Han dynasty, Confucianism has been a central and defining feature of Chinese art and culture. It therefore makes sense that Confucian values and ideals would be reflected in Chinese art throughout the past several millennia. Even when Confucian principles are blended or confounded with the principles of Daoism and Buddhism, the Confucian themes of law, order, structure, and hierarchy become salient. Moral rectitude in the Confucian model means ascription to a patriarchal social order, and obedience to authority. Perhaps the most obvious way Confucian moral precepts are depicted in art is through the careful ordering of the world evident in… Continue Reading...

Although the book is directly targeted at the First Century Laodicean church, the advices therein may be applied to Christians in all eras[footnoteRef:1].

Social Shift from Religion to Spirituality

Religion and Spirituality in a Broad Sense Spirituality and religion are two terms that have rather unstable, historically changing definitions, characterized by numerous implied and explicit theological considerations. Further, the general contention is that these definitions are either overly specific or overly generic. A more astonishing fact is, possibly, these researches' level of concurrence that spirituality represents a private, budding, personal and emotional sphere, whilst religion is more public, group-based and fairly stable. Interviews and questionnaire tools arising out of these definitions characteristically undertake measurements of the spirituality element by posing questions with regard to people's self-identity, psychological experiences, and… Continue Reading...

Pacific Island and Aboriginal Art 1980

Art, ritual, and religion are inseparable in the aboriginal societies of Oceania. Aboriginal myths of creation and the Dreamtime are rendered in art and permeate the various types of art found throughout indigenous Australia from bark and rock paintings to the modern renditions on canvas. Similarly, the art of Pacific Islands before 1980 is inseparable from their cultural contexts. The concept of art is different in the Pacific Islands than it is for the Europeans who colonized the region. Therefore, it is important to understand both aboriginal and Pacific Island art within their own historical, cultural, and social worldview. Art… Continue Reading...

Japan and Confucianism in Art and Society

When Neo-Confucianism arrived in Japan in the 16th century, it built on the pre-existing ideas of Confucianism that had already been imported into the island centuries earlier (Tsutsui 104). As far back as the 5th century, the Japanese had mixed with Confucian ideas about society and the role of the person in the world. Confucian ideas taught the Japanese about what it means to be a moral person. However, the Japanese also incorporated Buddhist concepts into their culture -- and these focused on the metaphysical side of nature and how to define reality (or unreality). These two systems of thought,… Continue Reading...

How Confucianism Impacted China

home: he was nearly 70 years of age -- but still teaching. According to the Analects -- a body of work that contains sayings and thoughts that are said to be those of Confucius -- the philosopher gave to his 72 disciples the books that later became known as the Five Classics. These books include the Classics of Poetry, the Book of Documents, the Book of Rites, the Book of Changes and the Spring And Autumn Annals (Nylan 4). Essentially, Confucius simply worked to codify a system of beliefs already present in Chinese culture. He imbibed these beliefs and… Continue Reading...

Dual Enrolment Implications for Community College Leadership

educational attainment in general are predicted by a combination of multiple factors such as demographic characteristics, cognitive factors, and teaching methods, and not necessarily dual enrolment. The benefits of dual enrolment can as well be viewed from the perspective of socialisation. Becoming a college student may not be as straightforward as often thought. It is a process that may require more than just academic preparation. Generally, certain attitudes and behaviours are vital for managing constantly occurring situations during college education. These attitudes and behaviours are best learned via experiences. Dual enrolment provides an ideal opportunity for socialising high school… Continue Reading...

Sex education prepares the child to be a responsible and ethical human being, as it helps promote safe sexual practices, helps individuals develop realistic expectations about sex and relationships, and helps eliminate the tendency for children to develop dysfunctional gender norms. Therefore, the goal of sex education should not simply be the mechanics of biological sex… Continue Reading...

Educational Psychology

while childhood is deemed to be the ideal age to independently learn any second language (i.e., without direct teaching on others' part), adults also can and have effectively learnt second languages (Woolfolk & Margetts, 2012).

While some pupils will be better, faster, organized or more responsible and conscientious with regard to their social relationships and attitudes, others may be relatively slower to develop in the same aspects.

Culturally Relevant Pedagogy

Culturally relevant pedagogy takes into account the kind of teaching that incorporates the background knowledge of the student and preceding home and community experiences into the curriculum and the teaching and education that goes on in the classroom. As pointed out by Woolfolk (2016), culturally relevant pedagogy is employed to delineate teaching that hinges on three propositions. First, it is imperative for students to experience accomplishment academically. Irrespective of the prevailing social inequalities and intimidating classroom settings, students have to grow and enhance their academic skills. There are different means for developing such skills. However, it is… Continue Reading...

World Religions and Is Confucianism a Religion

Rodney L. Taylor, 'The Religious Character of the Confucian Traditions' • Confucianism calls into question the definition of religion. • Confucianism is commonly treated differently from other religious traditions, because it is more about social harmony, ethics, and comportment than about theology. • All religions address ethics, morality, and social codes, and so does Confucianism. Then why is Confucianism not called a religion? • The main reason is that Confucianism "lacks a concept of the transcendent," (p. 80) • Is a concept of the transcendent a necessary part of the definition of a religion? No. • It is a "western"… Continue Reading...

A member of a collective culture is more afflicted by shameful incidents affecting them. Such a reaction is informed by the fact that there are severe consequences that include exclusion from the society and community support. The existence of an individual is greatly influenced and determined by relationships. If a social group withdraws support, one's self-identity is at high risk. It is, therefore evident that the fear… Continue Reading...

According to Pilcher (2007), interactive service work tends to be significantly gendered-segregated in the sense that most service organisations disproportionately select women for roles that require emotional labour. This segregation is basically denoted as gendered occupational segregation. It is a form of workplace segregation where an employer shows preference for a certain gender for some jobs (Pruitt, 2012). In service organisations in the UK and elsewhere, gendered occupational segregation is not an unfamiliar phenomenon (European Commission, 2009).

there is no universally accepted definition, participative learning generally denotes a teaching and learning environment where the student plays an active role (Keengwe & Onchwari, 2016). Traditionally, learning takes the lecture or passive style, where students play little or no role in the learning process. In essence, students are mainly expected to listen to the teacher, with little or no involvement in the learning process. Such a classroom environment has been shown to be detrimental to student learning (Keengwe & Onchwari, 2016). A participative learning environment tends to be more relaxed.

Impact Of the Rise and Spread Of Christianity

Rise and Spread of Christianity on the Classical World It's often assumed that the religion of Christianity perhaps greatly and generously impacted the classical age; after all, it was in this period that its foundations were established and it ultimately became the formal religion of the classical age. But corroborating this understandable supposition isn't easy. One might realize the fact that Jesus's religion was a considerable progress from the paganism followed since ancient times. The eventual success of Christianity proved to be a blessing for humanity. Nevertheless, revealing the precise level and nature of its benefit to humanity is tricky[footnoteRef:1].… Continue Reading...

The Revolution expressed and institutionalized new ideas about Reason (literally deified by the Revolution) as well as socio-political philosophy regarding fraternity, equality and liberty.

Brown (1994) offers an astute Christological analysis via a close and critical reading of scripture. A close reading allows for the contextualization of each Gospel, to resolve issues like conflicting or inconsistent imagery and anecdotes. With inconsistencies between the Gospels, it becomes imperative to piece together Jesus's core intentions and the meanings behind both His words and His actions. The need to understand scripture historically and linguistically is also apparent in the Brown analysis. In fact, Brown (1994) also points out the importance of historical and cultural context in interpreting Scripture. For example, attributions of "magical action," which is beyond… Continue Reading...

For example, nurses act a link between the patients and the physician and help convey the information that seeks to improve the welfares of the patients. The outcomes in the healthcare depend on the roles of the nurses.… Continue Reading...

Classroom Observation

analysis is fundamentally different from the theory frames that led to (Schoenfeld, 2013. At the onset, I believed that teaching was about spending 8 hours teaching and having a great time with children. Indeed, teaching seemed the easiest career choice for me. However, having interacted with many a student from across the age spectrum and educational levels, there is a side of the world that can only be viewed from the inside of a class. I changed my mind and view of the teaching career. I realized that teaching comes with its own host of difficulties and challenges. 1.  the… Continue Reading...

What Are the Six Ways Of Salvation

Salvation The model that most appealed to me was the model of Jesus as Moral Example and Influence. This model shows how Jesus teaches us to love one another. It is similar to the first model in that Jesus is a teacher but instead of focusing on the wisdom of Our Lord's doctrine, this second model focuses on the greatness of love that Jesus has for us and that He inspires in us through His moral example and goodly influence. Jesus is the model of what it means to love. As Peters (2006) notes, "Jesus models for us the life… Continue Reading...

Nursing Course Reflection

time to communicate effectively. Ultimately, the course was valuable for teaching me about the fundamentals of effective communication: knowing your audience, taking the time to explain things properly, but also cutting out superfluous information. Technical writing emphasizes clarity and directness as a means of conveying the point, and that is something that I took home from the course as critical elements in my own writing. I don't know if my idea of technical writing changed that much in five weeks. I thought it sounded pretty dull, and it still is, but there is a clear purpose to it, and so… Continue Reading...

their mental qualities or internal states. The theory postulates that people can learn to be leaders through teaching and observation. According to Bass (1990), this is simply done by teaching an individual the most appropriate behavioral response to any given situation. This means that the contemporary leaders, will learn good quality leadership from the current professionals some of which were not in the previous century, and from interacting with the current systems like the email system, the social media and other IT related interactive platforms. The 21st Century in this aspect has been seen to totally reshape the conception… Continue Reading...

more about how Native American people view their role in teaching music to children, as there must be some formal system of training in which the people learn how to play an instrument properly to achieve the desired sound and then to practice the songs that are traditional in each tribe.

All forms of music have some kind of structure and function. Even when music can be divorced from its culture as… Continue Reading...

The major feature I loved about them and that I have adopted as a personal teaching style is just how open they were to working with their proteges. I have decided to also create similar chances for my students working with me. I would analyze my work to see if there are certain research subjects I intend to write that my students could work on and benefit from. Apart from the professional interaction,… Continue Reading...

In the unit, the clinicians are obliged to use the CHG (Chlorhexidine gluconate) before the surgery is carried out to prevent healthcare associated infections. Since there is an evidence-based approach that confirms that Chlorhexidine is a topical antiseptic agent that can reduce the bacterial colonization of skin and is effective against different multidrug-resistant organisms. Thus, our unit’s unit places emphasizes in using the Chlorhexidine gluconate… Continue Reading...

Does Testing Overlook the Importance Of Long Term Learning

important findings about the implications of testing on long-term learning in the conclusion. Review and Discussion So-called " teaching to the test" simply means that classroom teachers focus coursework on the contents of upcoming tests, including the high-stakes standardized tests that have become virtually universal in their use. For instance, according to one educator, "High-stakes, standardized tests have become ubiquitous in public education in the United States. Teachers across the country are feeling the intensified pressures from high-stakes testing policies and are responding to these pressures by teaching to the tests in varying ways" (Au, 2009, p. 43).

Eugenics Movement

the English population (Galton, 1874).  In 1907, Galton established the Eugenics Society with the mission to “spread eugenic teaching and bring human parenthood under the domination of eugenic ideals” (as cited in Dorsey, 2002, p. 21). Derived from the Greek for “good birth,” the eugenics movement embraced the scientific concept of selective breeding by mating the best genes available while discouraging reproduction by people considered to be “defective” in order to improve the quality of the human race. For instance, according to DeBaets (2004), “This led to two separate but complementary tracks of eugenics: positive eugenics, which encouraged mass… Continue Reading...

also clear that far too many educators have ignored these trends and have remained mired in teaching practices that are no longer effective simply because these practices are familiar and comfortable. These significant trends have resulted in the need for educators to reassess how best to provide students with what matters most and there is a growing consensus that traditional educational approaches will no longer suffice. In this regard, Trybus concludes that, “What educators know and practice in teaching now will not be adequate for the future with the changing roles of curriculum, instruction, and assessment” (2013, p. 11).… Continue Reading...

Gospel Of John Vs Synoptic Gospels

Introduction While the Gospel of John bears some similarities to the Synoptic Gospels, as Barrett (1974) points out, it also sets itself apart in several unique ways by focusing on the mystical nature of Christ and the importance of the Church. Even the Synoptic Gospels offer differing details of the life and teachings of Christ, and in many instances, John agrees or is more in line with Mark, while Mark differs from Matthew and Luke. Still, Barrett (1974) affirms that “John’s aim was not literal accuracy, and he therefore cannot be expected to show detailed respect for the wording of… Continue Reading...

Lower order needs need to be fulfilled first, in keeping with Maslow’s original concept of a linear progression from the bottom of the pyramid-shaped needs hierarchy to the top. Moreover, students will first be highly motivated to fulfill lower order needs like hunger, security, and friendship. Only when these lower order needs are being met can teachers effectively focus on the fulfillment of higher order needs. Higher order needs will… Continue Reading...

Christian World View Ethical Dilemmas Of Pornography

Ethical Dilemmas: Pornography Biblically, God requires Christians to please Him in everything they do. Whether it is in secret or overtly, in thoughts or behaviour, Christians have a duty to portray Christ-like behaviour every moment of their life (Hiles & Smith, n.d.). Nonetheless, compliance with biblical teachings is not always as easy as portrayed by the Bible. In the course of their Christian walk, Christians often encounter situations of dilemma. These are basically situations in which it is not exactly clear whether doing something is right or wrong. Such situations especially arise when the Bible does not offer a straightforward… Continue Reading...

Christian Worldview

A worldview essentially denotes the framework of beliefs, ideas, philosophies, or ideologies that shapes how an individual or a group of individuals make sense of the world (Cosgrove, 2006). For instance, a three-year-old child believes that the world revolves around them. Equally, a secular humanist’s life is driven by the belief that only the material world exists. In essence, everyone has a worldview – whether conscious or unconscious. For Christians, the Bible is the ultimate influencer of their worldview. Christians believe that the sole reason for human existence is to serve God. This means that every action, decision, and emotion… Continue Reading...

The Church was to embrace “every nation under heaven,” (Luke 2:5). As such, the Church was the solution to fragmentation, strife, and sectarianism. The Church is the answer to the social and political problems Jesus identified, for Jesus was interested… Continue Reading...

Culturally Responsive Teaching in Education

Strong mentoring of student-teachers can help new educators to develop the self-awareness as well as specific skills needed to teach in a culturally responsive way.

Satisfaction of needs for humans should be considered temporary because pleasure is a monotonous thing that does not last (Shipton, Coetzee and Takeuchi 125). Origin of Suffering (Samudaya) Desire (tanha) is considered by Buddha teaching as the root of all suffering and comes in the form of greed and desire, ignorance and lastly, hatred and destructive urges. It should be noted that there are definite desires like those of enlightenment and good wishes for other people in Buddha teachings… Continue Reading...

Confidentiality Breaches & Informed Consent when Testing New Drugs

Siegler underscores the significant changes that the healthcare system has experienced in the past few decades. However, it would be inappropriate to disregard the patient confidentiality rule entirely because it would cause total insanity and loss of confidentiality in the healthcare sector (Beltran-Aroca et al. 64). Confidentiality should be maintained in the… Continue Reading...

The Gospel Of Matthew and Anti Semitism

“caution Christian teachers and preachers” about material that perpetuates anti-Semitism, essentially teaching a new type of Biblical literacy. Matthew’s Gospel has the most anti-Jewish potential of all the synoptic gospels because its content is often expressly, overtly anti-Semitic. Matthew is more anti-establishment than he is anti-Jewish per se, and yet he directs his criticisms directly at Jewish leaders and those who deny Christ. Moreover, Matthew was devoutly committed to the new covenant model, also known as supersessionism. Supersessionism refers to the Christian belief that Christ rendered Jewish law, custom, and tradition as irrelevant and even sacrilegious. Christ’s Church superseded… Continue Reading...

Educational Leadership and the Wisdom Of Proverbs

As you note, too much of a focus on technical aspects of education, such as teaching students specific computer skills or excelling on standardized tests, is not always a useful inheritance because these skills quickly become dated. Instead, we should look to give our students a longer lasting inheritance, which means teaching them to learn how to learn and how to think for themselves. There is too much of a focus on marketable skills and less upon the character and values that will last students a lifetime. It is also important to remember that living a good life is… Continue Reading...

Introduction Victor and his creature are opposing forces that struggle because of their conflicts throughout Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. Conflict is the dominant theme of the novel—one that Mary Shelley herself experienced in her own life, being married to the romantic poet Percy Byshe Shelley, who struggled with his own romantic ideas just as Victor Frankenstein struggles with his vain desire to be a Creator in Frankenstein. While Victor Frankenstein does become a Creator, he accomplishes his task ironically because he is a creator of the monster (which becomes of a monster because of Victor’s own incapacity to love him).… Continue Reading...

The Book Of Luke Acts and the Early Church

Johnson (1992) lists four theological themes present in the book of Acts: the Holy Spirit, the life of the church, the discernment of god’s activity, and universality. The same four themes are present in the life and ministry of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel. Moreover, these are the four main themes that would become the bedrock of the early church itself. According to Johnson (1992), being able to recognize these themes not only enrich the reader’s understanding of the gospel, but also reveals the “consistent religious preoccupations that might not be obvious on the surface of his storytelling,” (p. 14). These… Continue Reading...

A Historical Comparison Of Christianity and Buddhism

Two of the world’s most important and magnificent religions share little in common on the surface. Yet as the Dalai Lama’s recent interfaith dialogues have shown, locating points of intersection between Christianity and Buddhism can be a more fruitful endeavor than focusing only on differences. Buddhism is older than Christianity, but only by about 500 years. From their points of origin, Buddhism and Christianity spread far and wide geographically: Buddhism to East Asia and Christianity to Europe. One of the things Christianity and Buddhism share in common most is that their respective faiths are not as entrenched in their places… Continue Reading...

Anti-bullying programs take on different forms and names. However, the general idea is to prevent behavior that is hostile and violent. Just like with drugs and impulsive behavior, it teaches lessons about not engaging in behavior that is improper or, worse yet, illegal (Ferguson, 2007). Conclusion The three… Continue Reading...

Historical Perspective on Supervision

historical review of supervision in schools starts in the colonial age when supervision of teaching methodology was done through the procedure of external scrutiny with local individuals appointed to review how the instructors had been teaching and how pupils had been learning. This particular format for assessment continues to be a benchmark in the process of supervision all through its evolution. Supervision only developed into a formal process within the governmental school systems during the 1830s wherein school administrations started using supervision due to population growth in key cities all over the U.S (Glanz and Sullivan, 2005; Tracy, 1995).… Continue Reading...

This paves way for choosing skills and activities centered on ideas of optimality -… Continue Reading...

Religion the Theology and Teachings Of Paul

Paul’s writings are naturally cosmopolitan, his being influenced by Hellenistic culture and philosophy as well as Judaism. As a result, Paul’s contributions indelibly and significantly transformed the mode, meaning, and implications of Christ’s message. As Scholz (2013) points out, Paul penned almost half of all New Testament texts: thirteen books. Paul’s theology is “one of the cornerstones upon which the Christian Church is built,” (Zetterholm, 2009, p. 1). What also makes Pauline texts different is that unlike the synoptic gospels, Pauline letters reflect the author’s own theology. Reading and re-reading Pauline theology offers insight into how early Christian theology evolved… Continue Reading...

Biblical Worldview

Introduction An educator who possesses a biblical worldview and a Christian philosophy of education means that the instructor views life, life’s purpose, and all of history from the standpoint of the Christian religion. For such an instructor, the Incarnation is the most important moment in all of history, because it is the moment in which God became Man and the beginning of the redemption of mankind was initiated.

subject can be the cornerstone of many teachable moments and good leadership teaching. Analysis Failure was certainly something that came up during the interview that was done for this report. Indeed, the interviewee notes that failure should not be shunned or avoided when it comes to learning how to be a good leader. Indeed, there should be an embracing and heavy usage of failure. The interviewee notes that are two main examples of this. The first is by looking at the failures and mistakes of others. There is always going to be some amount of personal trial and error… Continue Reading...

The Bible Zetterholm and Pauls Teachings

According to Zetterholm (2009), God’s covenant with the people of Israel entails a bilateral relationship. In exchange for special status, the Jewish people agree to obey God’s commandments to the best of their ability. Lapses in judgment due to human nature or sin can be rectified via atonement and divine intervention. Thus, God always intended for faith to be a prerequisite for salvation. The endeavor to live by the commandments is itself insufficient. Paul’s transformative message of faith alone being the key to salvation appears to run contrary to contemporary living in a consumer society. Likewise, Paul’s message appears, at… Continue Reading...

between the teacher and the students. Having multiple ways of teaching the same concept ensures that the different students are able to use their different smarts to learn as a group and they excel in understanding the concept being taught. Interacting with the students instead of dictating to them using the normal teaching methods encourages the students to use their smarts instead of feeling they are not smart enough as compared to other students. This gives the children confidence and allows them to embrace their different ways of learning. Taking Advantage of The Many Learning Styles in A Classroom… Continue Reading...

Death Penalty As a Deterrent for Murder

Abstract This paper examines the death penalty as a deterrent and argues that states have not only the right but the duty to apply the death penalty to criminal cases because it is incumbent upon states to back the law with force. The death penalty acts as a forceful and compelling consequence for those who should choose to violate the law and commit murder. For that reason it can be said to be a deterrent. This paper also examines the opposing arguments and shows that those would say it is not an effective deterrent cannot offer any quantitative proof for… Continue Reading...

Formative Assessment Strategies for English Language Learners

Formative assessment offers much potential to make both teaching and learning more nuanced and effective for students, particularly students who are attempting to master a new language.

As their core, the most effective types of formative assessments are the ones that inherently promote student learning, making certain they… Continue Reading...

Prophet Muhammad Founder Of Islam

Introduction When examining the Prophet Muhammad in a religious-historical context, it is helpful to compare him to another central religious figure in the history of the West in order to highlight how he is unique. For example, while Christ plays the role of God-Man in the Christian religion, Muhammad simply plays the role of man—though a very special one, of course.[footnoteRef:1] As the Qur’an notes: “Muhammad is no more than an apostle: many were the apostle that passed away before him.”[footnoteRef:2] However, Muhammad’s nature is unlike that of other men, for he is recognized in Islam as having the “most… Continue Reading...

The leader then inspires the workers to reach for this ideal by giving them encouraging words and supportive communications. This support acts as their motivation to want to be the kind of worker represented in the ideal. However, the healthcare provider must also be intellectually stimulated to want to achieve the ideal. Emotional encouragement and support is not enough: the ideal itself should be intellectually rewarding. This means that the vision should offer workers an… Continue Reading...

Religion Bible and Paul and Story Of a Rabbi

1. Confirmation ceremonies come at a critical time in the individual’s life, representing the beginning of the transition from childhood to the responsibilities of adulthood. While in some ways childhood seems more “free” than adulthood because maturity brings with it responsibility to others, in fact, most teenagers will feel an increasing sense of independence and personal freedom as they get older. Therefore, it is important to convey a strong Christian message about what freedom means, the different types of freedom, and the pitfalls of too much (or the wrong kind of) freedom. Galatians 5:1, 13-18 encapsulates the Christian concept of… Continue Reading...

Education and Leadership Promoting Change

Far more productive would be to focus on the strengths of the organization, celebrate the achievements of the high performing teachers, and allow the change to occur almost organically. When faculty is empowered and motivated, there will be far less resistance to change. Dissenters will feel less threatened by the change, too, if they do not feel singled out. 2.

Nursing Practice Changes

institutionalized education, standards, and accreditation being implemented into the teaching of curriculum, nursing took on a more pronounced dimension. In particularly, advanced practice nurses were called upon to fill the gap left by physicians who were leaving the primary care field for more specialized medicine (O’Brien, 2003). Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, doctors collaborated with and trained nurses to offer primary care to these patients (O’Brien, 2003). By 1965, the U.S. provided Medicare and Medicaid to health care patients whose low income meant they were unable to pay for health care. By subsidizing health care costs, the government increased… Continue Reading...

Issues like revenge, power, loyalty, terror, and even profit motives have been identified among mass murderers in general but not necessarily active shooters (Fox and DeLateur 127).

Instead, Shakespeare uses the bulk of the play to focus on the… Continue Reading...

or ethical issues that are likely to arise during the research process. Center for Innovation in Research and teaching (n.d.) define ethics are standards or norms for distinguishing right and wrong. These standards or norms in turn become the premise for governing people’s decisions, behaviors, and actions.  Over the part few years, ethics has become an important component in research because researchers have a moral responsibility to protect their participants. This mandate has contributed to the development of the concept of experiment ethics, which is applied in situations involving the use of human subjects in a study. Researchers need… Continue Reading...

Difference Between Goals and Objectives Essay

and “objectives” are used interchangeably but in fact, they do connote different things. Particularly in the context of teaching and learning, it is important to differentiate between goals and objectives. Goals refer to broad end results, whereas objectives tend to be more specific (Norman, 2017). Thus, a learner may have a goal of improving patient care, with the learning objectives being to reduce medical errors by fifty percent. Another key difference between goals and objectives is that the latter can and should be framed in measurable or quantitative ways. Goals do not need to be measurable and can in… Continue Reading...

For the ISM, education is their weapon of choice. teaching itself could be classified as transmitting information to the world and to the global mainstream media through bearing witness. Indeed, the ISM combines activism with citizen journalism and education to promote social, political and economic change. As Hamdi (2011) puts it, ‘I wanted to show them how the geography of Palestine is broken by settlements, as though they are the centre and the Palestinian towns are marginal. No propaganda; we let them see the truth’ (Hamdi, 2011)—this is the essence of the ISM’s education as a… Continue Reading...

Mindfulness training could be used as an appropriate intervention in elder abuse, especially if prosecution of abusers is neither wanted by the victim nor possible by the state. For criminal justice agencies that prefer to focus on prevention, mindfulness training may be one technique that can be implemented to help reduce the risk of elder abuse.

This teaching points to a special relationship that we have with the Creator and signifies that our value is inherently greater than the rest of creation. At the same time, I do not believe that this value gives us license to disregard or abuse the rest of God’s creation. Since it is God’s creation and we are tasked with living in it, we should be respectful of every living thing, not because it is equal to us in terms of value, but rather because it is a creature or creation… Continue Reading...

Responses to Student Posts About Education

Education: the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and the Transforming teaching and Learning site. I appreciate the insight into how educators make tremendous personal sacrifices beliving in the value of their work in promoting higher quality of life in the society. For example, the author states, “The thoughts of spending $70,000-$100,000 for an education to receive a job in which you make $40,000 a year seems like a losing proposition for many would be education majors.” In spite of the horrendous statistics related to actual job or career outcomes, the field of education proves tremendously rewarding.

Many people who have been charged with the care of people with dementia aren’t fully prepared with how debilitating and draining such an endeavor actually is. A lot of these people are family members who haven’t been taught the appropriate way… Continue Reading...

Education and Leadership in Perioperative Nursing

educators. According to Parks (2013), leadership can actually be taught. This teaching should begin as early as possible in the nursing education program. The students should be encouraged to critically think through any situation they are presented with. They ought to create new solutions to problems, they can disagree with some issues and debate knowledgeably, they should not fear making mistakes, etc. (Curtis et al., 2011). They can also engage in projects that benefit the campus and the surrounding communities. The transformational leadership theory best fits the student nurse intern. James MacGregor Burns was the one who initially outlined… Continue Reading...

At all of these councils, the main issues were around the nature and personhood of Christ. His relationship to the Father, the relationship of the Holy Spirit to both, the meaning of the Trinity, the humanity and divinity of Christ—all of this was discussed and argued in different ways. The arguments went on for more than one hundred years as new ways of thinking about Jesus and God arose.… Continue Reading...

How Teachers Can Develop Professionally

and goals are being met. The first—making home visits—is a highly recommended practice among teaching professionals because it allows the teacher to bond with the community, show that he or she cares about every child and the families that send their children to the school, and that he or she is there to help the student in any way possible (Stetson, Stetson, Sinclair & Nix, 2012). The second development topic is similarly geared to the first one in that it also is oriented towards promoting connectivity—only this one is oriented towards the school itself.

Christianity in a Multicultural World

Faith Discussions 1 As Colossians 3:11 states, “Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.” This helps to explain how the Christian faith and the Bible play into the way that we lead in the area of cultural diversity: instead of seeing everyone as someone who is from this part of the world or who has such and such a socio-economic background, we look instead to the spiritual qualities—the fact that everyone is made new in Christ. Moreover, we should see Christ is in everybody… Continue Reading...

How Modern Medicine Was Developed

The need for the development of better medical practices also resulted in physicians having to undergo further training. Prewar physicians were not trained on the French clinical method for disease investigation and they found it hard to treat diseases. This led to them losing patients’ and without the knowledge for conducting autopsies they could not learn more regarding the ailment the patient was suffering. Physicians were now required to offer better diagnostic techniques. Which meant that physicians who had not… Continue Reading...

Beneficence Respect and Justice in Education Research

As Lopez-Alvarado (2017) points out, education is about empowering individuals and enriching society, not just about teaching specific tasks and processes. Educational research therefore has many meaningful effects and should be taken just as seriously as research in any other applied science. While it is understandable researchers become frustrated with bureaucracy, red tape, and daunting regulations that restrict their freedom in research, those rules are in place for good reason. Educational research can be scrutinized in the most streamlined way possible, while still protecting the most fundamental rights of individuals. The Belmont Report is a good starting point for… Continue Reading...

The study setting is my first grade classroom. This setting was chosen because first grade has been identified as the grade level at which the achievement gap begins to appear (Palardy, 2015). It was also chosen because I am a first grade teacher and have direct access to and interaction with students of this grade level. The problem is… Continue Reading...

This approach truly does offer the potential to open the doors for creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, but it can also foster discord and waste—if abused by destructive employees. Managers have the challenge of finding a way to let go of control, yet still ensure that there’s a level of coordination still involved. In this manner the others goals of the organization… Continue Reading...

Defining the Christian Faith Introduction When defining the Christian Faith, one must focus on three aspects of that faith: 1) the cognitive, 2) the relational, and 3) the behavioral. The Christian Faith is based upon a cognitive process—i.e., a determination in the mind to accept the doctrines of the Christian Church, which primarily teach that Jesus Christ is God and that the salvation comes by way of Christ and His Church. Next, the Faith is based upon the trust that the individual has in God according to the doctrines he has received: believing what he believes, he trusts God to… Continue Reading...

that faith is not separate from action. Faith is reached by acting, by teaching, by engaging with others towards something positive and good through Christ. Reason tells them that faith without works is dead, as the Scriptures teach (James 2:26). Thus, the praxis model appeals to them because it unites the idea of faith to the idea of action. This model is particularly liked by Liberation theologians like Gustavo Gutierrez.[footnoteRef:14] [14: Ibid.] Finally, there is Dulles’ personalist model of faith, which focuses on union with God. St. John embodies this model. He was there with Christ at the cross… Continue Reading...

Education and the Art Of Listening

Genesis 2 I believe that learning is more important than teaching. That is not to suggest that teaching is not important—but the purpose of teaching is to facilitate learning, not just to teach as an end in and of itself. In Genesis 2, God shows that He is invested in His creation and He wants man to be happy. How to obtain happiness after the fall of man, however, is the key point that we all must face today. To be fair, obtaining that happiness is something we all must learn. Can we do it without a teacher?… Continue Reading...

Communism in Latin America

A Critique of Democracy: the Latin American Left Introduction The Latin American Left was mainly inspired by the idealism of Marx. Marx (1873) believed that “the ideal is nothing else than the material world reflected by the human mind and translated into forms of thought.” For the Left, the main problem has always been rooted in class—as materialism is the basis of their worldview, class and class struggle was the biggest issue, and equality and egalitarian principles enacted and served in society were the goal. Marx wanted the workers to own the means of production and thus end the rule… Continue Reading...

Analysis Of Gospel John

that betrayal would teach. The disciples in this case fail to grasp the spiritual truth underlying Jesus’s teaching. They struggle to reach beyond the limitations of their human mind, and are looking for a mundane proof according to their limited worldview and experiences. Therefore, this section underscores the essence of faith. Even after all they have seen, the disciples lack the ultimate faith in Jesus’s origins, his ministry, and his trajectory. However, Peter’s confession shows how the disciples have come to believe in Christ and cultivated the faith in His divinity.

The INFP Learning Style also describes me to a “t”—a enjoy learning but usually only when it relates in some way to human behavior. I can study manuals and information that is purely mechanical—such as how to change oil in a car—but I do find it to be tedious and more like a chore than something I enjoy.

Ethics Community and the Common Good Concept

or fear, thereby detracting from the common good. Catholic Social teaching offers an idealized model of civil society in which each person is engaged in and committed to the common good: the creation and maintenance of the conditions necessary for human flourishing. The specific methods of working towards the common good, and how the common good will manifest, may vary from place to place or from time to time, but the ultimate goals of personal and collective fulfillment remain the same. Participation in social organizations is inevitable, even for those who remain relatively detached from business or politics. Ultimately,… Continue Reading...

Catholic Social Teaching Peace Building

is a necessary and integral component of Catholic Social teaching (CST) (Sullivan & Pagnucco, 2014, p. 113). In fact, from a CST perspective, peace building is a more meaningful and expansive project integrated into Christian ethics and identity. CST engages partners at various levels, including government organizations and the private sector, to usher in a new and transformed world. Partnering with a wide range of actors and stakeholders makes peace building highly complex and potentially problematic, particularly when conflicts of interest may arise. While some peace building activities can seem straightforward in their approach, philosophy, and implementation, many reveal… Continue Reading...

Solidarity As a Principle Of Catholic Social Teaching

solidarity,” (Pagnucco & Gichure, 2014, p. 161). The Catholic Social teaching CST) perspective shows that there is only one type of solidarity: the global unity among disparate people. Solidarity is also not a static state of affairs resulting in artificial designations of identity. Rather, solidarity is about action and relationship. Pagnucco & Gichure (2014) define solidarity as relationships based on “interdependence and unity...and mutual moral obligations,” (p. 161). A shared identity comes not necessarily from nationality or creed, but from identity as a morally conscious human being. It is also possible to maintain one’s connections to ethnic or other… Continue Reading...

Paul and the Timothy Letters

2 Timothy 2:14-26, it discusses dealing with false teachers. “Avoid godless chatter…their teaching will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, who have departed from the truth” (Stedman, 2011). These false teachers will destroy a person’s faith like saying the resurrection has already happened. Or, in the case of modern times, that there is no God and the soul does not exist. In such instances, these teachers become what many see as false prophets, filling the minds of people, with information that causes chaos more than order. What one must do to circumvent such destruction is to… Continue Reading...

Chivalry the Shield and Sir Gawain

Chivalry and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight Introduction In the medieval world, chivalry was a code of conduct—a principle of behavior—expected of courteous knights, as endlessly expressed by one of the most famous knights of all time, Don Quixote.[footnoteRef:2] In the medieval story Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, chivalry takes center stage in the action, as the plot essentially pivots on what it means to be chivalrous and how chivalry should be embodied. Sir Gawain undergoes a moral test; the Green Knight is a kind of mythical, mystical judge who puts him through the test; and at the… Continue Reading...

Should Schools Teach Sex Education

teach abstinence (Dodge et al., 2008, p. 71). Schools are required to follow protocols when teaching about sexually transmitted diseases. These protocols stress that abstinence is the expected standard that all students should be expected to follow, abstinence is the way to avoid the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases, and that students have the power to control their own personal behavior. High school students are taught about HIV/AIDS and must take a Life Management Skills course. The age at which children should be exposed to sex education topics is judged differently according to nation, state and culture. In Canada,… Continue Reading...

The Amazing Clara Barton

encouraged her to become a teacher. Clara earned her teaching certificate at just 17 years of age and fell in love with the work. She found herself dedicated to the children of workers in the area and pushed for a redistricting of the region so that their children could receive an education. She was, like her father, a progressive who did not settle for the status quo but pushed to make things better for all those who were around her (Pryor, 2018). Clara would go on to teach for 12 years both in Georgia and in Canada. Following her… Continue Reading...

How to Achieve Environmental Health

If airports air pollution is going to be a problem, airports should be held accountable. If local leaders are not spearheading change to help protect the health of the public, those leaders need to be replaced. Air pollution prevention is not going to be solved overnight, but it can begin to be addressed by letting the right people get into positions of power wherein they can make change happen. Conclusion Air pollution… Continue Reading...

Plato and Aristotle on Passion

to say that Plato would disagree with such an assertion would be to miss the essence of his teaching on the matter as well. In short, both would recognize the primacy of reason over passion; the manner in and extent to which reason should be applied is where they differ. Plato loves reason in and of itself—though he would certainly not be in league with the Rationalists of the Enlightenment Era, for Plato sees that a right spirit is essential to the right use of reasoning. Passion as the Motivating Factor Such is precisely why Aristotle will argue in… Continue Reading...

for their children: they prepare them for the world by teaching them language, which helps to form their brains. John the Baptist preached to the people of Israel to help train their hearts. Their hearts had to be prepared to receive God when He came. This took effort on John’s part: he had to speak to the people and lead them by example so that they would recognize Christ when He came. Parents do the same when they speak to their children and use a variety of words in their homes. The more words children are exposed to the… Continue Reading...

Faith Reason and Worship

One of the arguments made by atheists against the existence of God is that there is just no hard, empirical evidence for His existence. Everything ultimately comes down to faith. One believes because one wants to believe—one has faith in God. While it is true that faith is necessary to believe in God, it is false and foolish to say that there is no evidence for God’s existence (Psalm 14:1). Why is it foolish? The reason is simple: the evidence is all around us and all we have to do is admit our own smallness in order to better see… Continue Reading...

International Law and World Government

Reasoning with clear ideas and examples, what are at least two of the main justifications for the legitimacy, authority, and usefulness of the UN, and two of the main criticisms? Legitimacy means the acceptance and right of a given authority such as a law for governance, or a specified regime. Legitimacy refers to a whole set of governance system. On the other hand, authority refers to a specified position in a government. Government on its part refers to a sphere of influence. Any authority is perceived to be legitimate if it practices the mandate to use power justifiably. Legitimacy is,… Continue Reading...

Evil and the Existence Of God

in his theism. This logic, however, is contrary to the Christian teaching that the fool has said in his heart there is no God. Such a person cannot be justified according to Christian teaching and therefore a Christian cannot be a friendly theist but must by definition be an unfriendly theist. Thus, though Rowe would like to be a friendly atheist, the same simply cannot be said for a Christian because there is no permission to hold that atheism is justified. 8.

Black Power and Black Feminism

Power, Inequality and Conflict The two theorists used in this paper to explore the theme of “power, inequality and conflict” are W. E. B. Du Bois and Patricia Hill Collins. The theme is one that gets to the heart of the struggle within the American Experience. The great attraction of the American Dream has always been that people are created equal and are endowed with a natural right to pursue life, liberty and happiness. For many minorities and marginalized persons in America, however, the Dream has a way of turning into a nightmare. Whether because of segregation, Jim Crow laws,… Continue Reading...

Evil and the Holy Cross

Personal Theodicy Apologetics The problem of evil is something everyone has to face sooner or later. As Schlesinger points out, philosophers want to understand “why there is any suffering in the world at all.”[footnoteRef:2] The problem with a philosophical approach to suffering is that it does not reveal the whole story or the whole picture of why suffering (evil) exists. Religion, on the other hand, does provide that whole story—and depending on the religion, the story will be a little different. Christianity teaches that evil is a result of sin—that it is not something that came of its own into… Continue Reading...

His sentence does not bother him and he respects the decision of the state, acknowledging that it has the right to decide these matters. He objects, however, to the notion that he is being harmed by the decision, as it is his belief that the lesser cannot harm the greater. The greater, by virtue of… Continue Reading...

dialogue as well as social progress (Massaro, 2012). Catholic Social teaching shows that it is possible to be in the world but not of it; to come from a place of spiritual certainty and stability but to remain engaged critically in the secular society too. Extreme isolation or opposition to diversity and secular values has proven unproductive, which is why it is not recommended as a judicious course of action. While it is possible to take political action based on secular norms, it is not possible to cultivate Christian ethos but not take any steps towards social justice. The… Continue Reading...

fiction, as a historical document it is useful in teaching about the past—the values and culture of the medieval Anglo-Saxon society and how Christian culture intersected with the pagan world at a time when Christian conversion was spreading. Not only does Beowulf refer to real kings of the time, thus grounding the story in a specific historical reality, but it also describes a culture of co-existence—an old world people and place situated neatly between paganism and Christianity. As an epic poem Beowulf describes the heroic journey of the titular character as he accepts the challenge of Hrothgar to defend… Continue Reading...

Ethical Framework

Definition of an Ethical Framework An ethical framework that would be useful to me is one which I can use it to assess how to go about behaving in a given circumstance. The framework should be based on the virtue-ethics perspective. As Lutz (1996) points out, “Piaget and Kohlberg belong to the cognitive-developmental tradition of developmental psychology” in which the moral development of a child is decided through social interaction and comes about naturally rather than through formal education (p. 1). Kohlberg’s theory of moral development is that there are six stages of moral development. First, there is the stage… Continue Reading...

The students were first tasked with acquiring the knowledge and remembering the basic ideas of the standard. Then they had to begin to demonstrate understanding and the ability to apply their understanding. After that occurred, I was able to ask them to explain and analyze using their understanding. This was an agreeable process that could be replicated again easily using Bloom’s Taxonomy. Specific professional development that may be needed in my building would… Continue Reading...

Christianity and Psychology Personal Theory

Personal Theory Paper Introduction Since mid-1970s, a serious matter for integration between Christianity and psychology developed among Christian counsellors. The integration movement developed as a result of reaction to psychology being accepted in the sector dealing with pastoral counseling where it did not face any criticism from the Christians’ point of view. The efforts for integrating psychology with Christianity developed more energy in the last twenty years since the time when Jay Adams refused to have psychology included in the pastoral care sector (Kim, 2004). Attempting to create an integration in psychology with Christian faith is a tedious experience as… Continue Reading...
