Teaching For The Millennial Child: Study Guide Educational/Spiritual Intervention Design Aids Syllabus One: In Order For Progress to be Made Two Generations Must Agree Syllabus Two: What Can Go Wrong Syllabus Three: Fine Tuning The Intervention
Readers are saying the subject domains in the Study Guide are too complex to sort through looking for principles and facts and ideas that can be easily fashioned into learning units that can be linked according to an effective concept learning sequence that can be used to help a Learner guide themselves to acts of guided re-invention and to stages of mental growth resulting in the emergence and stabilization of new stages of thinking ability and new levels of spiritual insight and understanding accompanied by increased faith and trust. I felt inspired to craft some syllabi that will demonstrate, step by step, the process I would go through to create a specific, targeted intervention for a specific individual. I felt I should demonstrate how to draw information from each knowledge domain such as thinking skills development [Fischer, Feuerstein], culture [Young and Morgan, Smith, Stanley, and Shores, Hall], [Fischer and Feuerstein and Vygotsky ] and weave the information into an intervention that can be presented using the dyadic intervention model, and so on. I chose to address the issue that our society seems most taken with at the moment: the remarkable downturn in belief and church activity among our young people and the burgeoning crisis among young people around the world manifesting itself as despair, anxiety, lack of a cohesive, dynamic identity and a sense of purpose in life. This would be alarming enough in and of itself even if it weren’t being accompanied by an up-tick in the teen suicide rate world-wide. For reasons I explain at length elsewhere I chose one aspect of the allegory: Put On The Whole Armor of God: The Shield of Faith in the Lord Jesus Christ The target age/developmental level of my model Learner is about 15 years of age in our Western society. I took an extra four months of writing time (coming up now on 18 months total) to attempt this. I promise you, it is no more effective than my original work only easier to understand and use. Hopefully it will give you enough clues for how the process works for me and enough citations to materials in the guide and elsewhere that you will be able to pull something together that works for you and those you love as you work through the guide on your own. START HERE PLEASE I suggest you start with Hall Chp. One, Culture and at the same time study Syllabus One. This will give you some background and you can then follow the chapters in order, with a Syllabus in between and you’ll soon develop enough background to handle the other material productively.
