Would Jesus use a Harkness Table?

The study of classical Christian pedagogy should begin with the Gospels. Jesus is a Master Teacher, whose disciples adopted his teachings and faithfully transmitted them to an ever increasing group of students. As a result, Jesus presents a great model for us as teachers. In this workshop, we will examine Jesus’ teaching methods, in particular his practice of discipleship, his use of stories and parables, and his skillful deployment of questions. Our study will be both philosophical and practical, for we will consider his approach to teaching and look for specific ways that we can apply his methods to our own classrooms.
