9780415832977: Religion in the Classroom: Dilemmas for Democratic Education

Dilemmas surrounding the role for religious beliefs and experiences permeate the school lives of teachers and teacher educators. Inspired by the need for teachers and students to more fully understand such dilemmas, this book examines the relationship between religion and teaching/learning in a democratic society. Written for pre-service and in-service teachers, it will engage readers in thinking about how their own religious backgrounds affect their teaching; how students’ religious backgrounds influence their learning; how common experiences of school and classroom life privilege some religions at the expense of others; and how students can better understand diverse religious beliefs and interact with people from other backgrounds. The focus is specifically on classroom issues related to religious understandings and experiences of teachers and students, and the implications of those for developing democratic citizens. Grounded in both research and personal experience, each chapter provides thought-provoking evidence related to the role of religion in schools and society and asks readers to consider the consequences of varied ways of responding to the dilemmas posed.

Review:

Providing a mixture of personal accounts, theory, and the voices of students and teachers, Religion in the Classroom is an important and accessible volume that highlights the complexities surrounding the nature and scope of religion and its impact in/on education.

Avner Segall, Associate Professor, Michigan State University

This is an exciting and refreshingly bold book about the intersections across religion, democracy, and schooling. The authors’ candid reflections on the role of religion in their personal and professional lives, together with the penetrating and insightful questions they pose, provide a powerful starting point for meaningful conversations among teachers and teacher educators.

Patricia G. Avery, Professor, University of Minnesota
