Judson Press Book Uses the Teaching Model of Jesus for Educator Growth and Effectiveness

VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 9/4/18)—What habits, attitudes, or techniques can you learn from the world’s greatest teacher? In Teacher Training with Jesus: 10 Lessons from the Master, educator and author Susan O’Carroll Drake presents teaching strategies from Jesus that will take you from being good to great.

Teacher Training with Jesus streamlines the learning process and highlights ten short lessons based on Jesus’ model of teaching that include a Bible study, real-life inspirational vignettes, and practical suggestions that will help you become more effective in teaching.

Author, speaker, sociologist, and preacher Tony Campolo states, “In these pages, fellow teachers will find a spirit of compassion and empathy, and the encouragement they need to carry out their duties, looking to Jesus’ life and teaching for wisdom, understanding, comfort, and hope.”
Using Jesus’ examples, this book provides lessons and tips on:

• Preparation
• Delegation
• Demonstration
• Empathy
• Audience
• Focus
• Perspective
• And more

“Drake has hit the mark of truly inspiring the reader to a higher commitment of daily living the Christ-like life in the classroom,” notes Sheila Rogers Gloer, EdD, professor at Baylor University in Waco, TX.
