              Jewish Education and Learning: Published in Honour of Dr. David Patterson on the Occasion of His Seventieth Birthday (Paperback)

              First published in 1994. This volume, dedicated to Dr David Patterson, founding President of the Oxford Centre for Postgraduate Hebrew Studies, takes as its theme Jewish education and learning throughout the ages. But it is the 'Academy' - interpreted here to mean an institution ...of Judaic scholarship - which dominates this collection of essays. For almost three thousand years centres of Jewish learning have flourished in many parts of the world. This volume discusses these institutions from biblical times to the present. From the time of the Mishnaic Academy at Yavneh, established in the first century CE, the academies were more than schools of higher religious education. They incorporated rational analysis of the scriptures, the natural sciences and other secular studies. Some of the most celebrated academies, such as those in Cairo and Tunisia, and later in the Iberian Peninsula were of a very high intellectual order, sometimes superior to the great Christian universities. It was at these institutions that the great Jewish legal and literary works were written and completed. This collection of essays has been written by outstanding scholars who have been associated with David Patterson and the Oxford Centre. The essays explore the nature and function of the 'Jewish Academies' in the broadest sense, the leading personalities associated with them and their social, cultural and moral effect on the Jewish communities of their day.

              In this study, first published in 1965, the author explores the implications of research for an alternative approach to religious education. The book deals with the psychological bases of religious development, reviewing the natural limitations as well as the basic needs of the y...oung, and how religious education should be affected by educational theory and practice. The author also examines what content and methods of teaching are consistent with the healthy development of children and adolescents. Teachers in schools, students in training, lecturers, clergy and ministers, and local education authority committees will welcome the book as an important aid to the task of rethinking syllabuses and the need for more child-centred methods of teaching.

              First published in 1966. Under the 1944 Act, the only compulsory school subject was Religious Instruction. Books and research findings revealed a critical situation, and many educationalists, churchmen and parents believed a review of the problem was vital. This book presents the... considered views of a group of distinguished educationalists who met in London in April 1965 under the auspices of the Institute of Education. It also includes the comments by members of Parliament, church leaders, university and school teachers who were present and the whole contains a frank and valuable expression of expert opinion upon a very controversial subject.

              First published in 1982. This book brings together some of the most influential articles which had moulded British religious education. The articles are divided into specialised sections dealing with various aspects of the subject so that the main developments are clearly indicat...ed. The first section of the book deals with research into the religious psychology of childhood. This is followed by two collections of articles dealing with the search for a philosophy of religious education and with the problems created for the teaching of religion in Britain by our pluralist society. The fourth section deals with the problems of designing a curriculum in religious education, while the final part gives some examples of methods in the teaching of religion. The book thus provides, both the general reader, the student teacher and the specialist religious education teacher, an easily accessible collection of many of the materials which had created British religious education.

              First published in 1987. The book is intended for class teachers (and trainee teachers) in primary schools who wish to teach religious education well but are unclear as to how they might. Firstly, this book maps out the changes that had taken place with regard to changing aims an...d objectives in the subject; children and their understanding of religion; and the broadening understanding of the notion of religion and considers the implications of these for the teacher. Secondly, it investigates ways in which the teacher can approach religion in the classroom. It develops five complementary approaches: thematic work, world religions, festivals, the Bible and biography. These are illustrated with numerous examples. There are also many accounts of successful pieces of teaching. Thirdly, the book recognizes that many teachers are not confident themselves in the world of religion and attempts to provide information and understanding at the teacher's own level. Overall the book sets out to be a straightforward, practical guide to the primary classroom teacher. It aims to provide a framework (rather than a straitjacket) in which teachers of different styles and from different backgrounds can work.

              First published in 1978. The world religions movement gave way to a new form of religious education which was wide ranging in content and open in approach. This development raised a number of issues. How broad should the syllabus be? Should Humanism and Marxism be included? How s...hould Christianity be taught? What role has the believer of any one faith in the teaching of RE? As curriculum development gathers momentum so the need to discuss such questions becomes urgent. This book is devoted to examining the place of world faiths in education by members of a variety of faiths. It will help students and teachers to think their way through the many challenges facing RE today. The book argues a new framework for the subject. The contributors hope that they have provided a sign-post pointing to a future in which all who are concerned that children should grow up with an understanding of the ultimate meaning of life, whatever their own faiths, may be able to work together to make the subject vital and worthwhile.

              First published in 1976. It can be argued that both moral and religious education are undervalued in schools. The author, Alan Harris, believes that too many people think of them as indoctrinatory subjects with moral educators' telling people what they ought to do and religious e...ducators telling them what they ought to believe. By a combination of practical examples of both good and bad teaching from the classroom and clear, analytical examination of what is meant by moral and religious education, the author shows that the object of both subjects should be to help pupils form their own judgements.
