Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, grade: 1,3, LMU Munich (Institut fur Englische Philologie), course: Theorie und Praxis der Unterrichtsgestaltung fur Englisch an Gymnasien, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Theoretical background information on games in the classroom is given as well as practical examples of different games. The amount of games is limited to nine in this essay, not counting variations or adaptations. More activities and games can be found in the literature., abstract: This paper shows how important games and speaking activities in a foreign language learning class are. It first concentrates on a theoretical part. Why should games be part of every effective class? What positive outcome is to be expected with playing? What aspects are important in order to play successfully? Here special emphasis is set on the atmosphere in class. The following point includes the criteria for choosing a game. Various different factors have to be given deeper thought before you can even start planning the actual game. Often enough the major problems are not caused by the game itself but rather by class or time management. When all the preliminary problems are finally settled the chosen game will then have to be planned carefully always keeping in mind how it will be presented, how it will be carried out and how the topic of feedback will be treated. The second major part of this paper deals with actual games. A selection of nine games is presented and critically evaluated showing problems or weak points, but also giving hints for successful playing or variations on the games. Here the focus lies mainly on games that were played during didactics courses. The participants then were asked to give their own personal view on these games or add from their own experience. A brief summing up of the main points that were discussed is given. What is important is that all the pr

It is a widespread idea that the roots of the Christian sermon can be found in the Jewish Derasha. But the story of the interrelation of the two homiletical traditions, Jewish and Christian, from New Testament times to the present day is still untold. This book offers the papers of the first international conference (Bamberg, Germany, 6th to 8th March 2007) which brought together Jewish and Christian scholars to discuss Jewish and Christian homiletics in their historical development and relationship and to sketch out common homiletical projects.

While religion can be a source of healing, peace, and reconciliation, it can also be a trigger, if not an underlying cause, for conflict between peoples of varying beliefs. With that awareness, the International Academy of Practical Theology convened its 2007 meeting around the theme of "Religion, Diversity, and Conflict." From the multiple seminars, lectures, and studies presented at that meeting, a selection was chosen for this book. Representing contributions from four continents, and drawing upon perspectives from African traditional religions, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity, the book offers a rich introduction to the problems and promises of religion in dialogue with 21st-century diversity. Religion, Diversity and Conflict will serve as a veritable primer on the field of practical theology. (Series: International Practical Theology - Vol. 15)

The question of how research on structures and outcomes in Religious Education can be carried out successfully is of current interest in many countries. Next to the more traditional historical, analytical and, more recently, international comparative approaches, empirical research in religious education has been able to establish itself as a major approach to this field. Moreover, the contemporary discussion about comparative evaluation in schools has raised a number of questions which also refer to Religious Education. What competences can pupils acquire in this subject? Does Religious Education really support the acquisition and development of the competences aspired? Are there differences in this respect between different forms of Religious Education or between different approaches to teaching? With contributions from eight European countries, the volume brings together approaches and research experiences that try to follow this lead by offering new and empirically based perspectives for the future improvement of teaching and learning in this school subject. Whoever is interested in improving the practice of Religious Education then, will not be able to bypass the question of researching processes and outcomes - an insight which also refers to a small but growing number of studies in this field which can be identified in several countries.

This volume offers an introduction to all questions of teaching Religious Education as a school subject and as an academic discipline related to this subject. The chapters cover most of the aspects that religion teachers have to face in their work, as well as the theoretical background necessary for this task. The volume is a textbook for students and teachers of religious education, be it in school or in an academic context, who are looking for reliable information on this field. The book has proven its usefulness in German speaking countries. This volume is the English translation of the German Compendium of Religious Education (edited by Gottfried Adam and Rainer Lachmann). The present English version is based on the 2012 edition which aims for a most current representation of the field. The background of the book is Protestant but its outlook is clearly ecumenical, and questions of interreligious education are considered in many of the chapters. The compendium continues to be widely used in Germany, Austria and Switzerland - as an introduction to the field and as a handbook for students who are preparing for their final exams. The English edition makes this compendium available to students and colleagues in other countries.

Haim Omer builds on his previous work to present a model of authority for parents, teachers and community workers that is suitable for today's free and pluralistic societies. This new authority contrasts with traditional authority in that it emphasizes self-control and persistence over control of the child, a network of support over a strict hierarchy, taking mutual responsibility for escalations over holding the child solely responsible, patience over threats, non-violent resistance over physical force, and transparency over secrecy. In addition to a thorough discussion of the underlying theory, The New Authority presents a practical program for families, schools and communities. Dr Omer provides specific instructions to combat violence and risky behavior at home and in school, increase parent and teacher interest and support, and implement interventions that increase safety, improve atmosphere and generate community cohesiveness.
