I have a gift for you.
In my decades of teaching experience, I have been introduced to a myriad of delivery strategies, management techniques, intervention ideologies and even public speaking tips. While some have proven to be very effective, very few I would consider fruitful. Even in education, there is money to be made by the “newest thing” and the latest “research-based” fad (feel free to state your opinion on Common Core in the combox). Sadly, much of my time has been wasted at empty professional development seminars listening to people try to sell me something as opposed to making me a better teacher.
It wasn’t until I began reading the Gospels that I realized that all of the educational training I found to be effective was already practiced by Jesus over 2,000 years ago.
Seriously, who was the top chemist at the Wedding in Cana? Jesus, He changed the molecular structure of water into wine.
Who was the best mathematician in all of Judea? Jesus, He could multiply bread and fish.
Who gave the finest incentive if you listened to his teachings? Jesus, He promised us eternal life!
My gift to you is my latest book, 99 Ways to Teach Like HIM, A 2,000 Year-old Model for Homeschool, Public and Private School Teachers. The book:
- provides homeschooling and classroom teachers with what they need to better engage their students spiritually while not having to sacrifice academics.
- show how Jesus’ teaching methods are just as effective in today’s learning environments as they were during his earthly mission.
- is absolutely FREE to people who sign up for my email list.
“With Teach Like Him, T.J. Burdick has created a terrific tool for educators. Blending sacred scripture with novel techniques and strategies, T.J.’s book belongs in every classroom as part of a teacher’s arsenal of professional development resources. And since every parent is indeed the primary educator of their children, I’d like to see Teach Like Him in every kitchen too! Pick this up for yourself or your favorite educator and enhance the world of the students you serve.”
– Lisa M. Hendey, Founder of CatholicMom.com and author of A Book of Saints for Catholic Moms
“Teacher and writer, Timothy J. Burdick has crafted a book that equips teachers to proclaim the gospel without speaking a word. A few minutes every morning reading Teach Like Him will prime teachers to set an example that will bring the living Word of God to their students. And so the gospel that works in our hearts by the Holy Spirit will touch their lives.”
– Bert Ghezzi, co-author of Discover Christ, Developing a Persona Relationship with Jesus
“This little book is the kind of grounded reminder every educator needs about why, how, and what we teach our children, parents especially. The most fundamental answers all go back to Scripture, and T.J. Burdick has laid the model out in concise and accessible format, a mini-reference book when you need to grab the truth.”
