Reading With a Purpose: How the Discipline Sets the Strategy
Limited Capacity seats available

Reading with a clear sense of purpose in mind always improves our reading, but different disciplines read differently and hence read for different purposes. Students actually need to be taught multiple ways to approach their reading. We will examine the different approaches of different disciplines and then touch on methods that might help set purpose for readers in your classroom.

Faith and Doubt
Limited Capacity seats available

At the close of the Gospel of Matthew, after the disciples had personally witnessed the death and resurrection of Jesus and right before they were commissioned to make disciples of all nations, we are told: "When they saw him, they worshiped him, but some doubted." Why do some people doubt while others worship? What causes religious doubt? How do we respond to it? Are faith and doubt incompatible? Join us as we reflect on these questions and their implications for the Christian teacher and classroom.
