Teaching as Formation: The Embodied Shape of Apprenticeship

A classical Christian education is both “holistic” and “formative.” It not only provides information for hungry intellects; it should also shape the habits, loves, and longing of students to become people who desire God and his kingdom. This plenary session will explore the implications of this for pedagogy, considering some concrete examples of how a Christian worldview is “carried” in Christian practices. We will see how the spiritual disciplines are historic pedagogies. And we will also consider what practices can sustain and nourish teachers for this task.
