Teaching and Being Taught: Essays in Christian Education
Teacher. It is a noble calling. It is a calling in which those who answer it not only teach but also continue to learn. The author is a veteran teacher, editor of educational materials, writer of articles on Christian education, and textbook author. In this book he shares some of the lessons he's learned over the years. Those lessons are applicable to various grade levels and subjects. Dr. Charles Walker, for 25 years the editor of Journal for Christian Educators, considers Peterson's book "a must-read for every Christian school educator" and says that it "needs to be on every teacher's desk." Organized around John Milton Gregory's book The Seven Laws of Teaching, these essays were originally published in Journal for Christian Educators and other educational publications. They were well received then and, as "evergreens," are applicable today as well.
