What makes an excellent teacher? We’ve all had teachers who had a profound and lifelong impact on us – perhaps we are teaching precisely because of their influence! This seminar will take time to examine the theological and philosophical foundation that undergirds all great teachers. Beginning with a consideration of Matthew 10:24 and Luke 6:40, and concluding with a time of collaboration, we will briefly trace the concept of incarnational teaching through history and discuss how this ought to affect our classrooms today. The time of collaboration will provide a venue to draw out specific practical application from the theory of incarnational teaching.
