The Secondary Teacher Initiative at the 2018 Conference on Faith and History
NOTE: This is cross-posted from John Fea’s blog, The Way of Improvement Leads Home.
As you may know, I am chairing the program for the 2018 meeting of the Conference on Faith and History. We will be meeting October 4-6 at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. You can see the Call for Papers here and here.
Under the leadership of CFH president Jay Green and Woodberry Forrest School (VA) history teacher and department chair Fred Jordan, we are hoping to attract secondary teachers to the 2018 meeting. There will be a special session devoted to teachers tentatively titled “How Can the CFH Better Serve Secondary School Teachers?” If you are a teacher with an interest in the CFH I hope you might consider coming to Grand Rapids and participate in the conversation.
Another way that teachers can get involved in the conference is through the presentation of papers. If you are a CFH member, would like to be a CFH member, or are a fellow-traveler with the CFH, I would love to entertain a proposal from you. We have already had a few teachers submit proposals, and are expecting a few more. If you have any questions or concerns on this front, don’t hesitate to contact me.
We want the Conference on Faith and History to be a place where secondary teachers of Christian faith might find a home.
