Religious Instruction In Christian Education (2)

Religious instruction is the most commonly used approach in Christian education. This is because of its historical link with catechism classes, the Sunday schools, and the schooling education system.

The main purpose is to transmit religious content. This is often done in a formal education setting.

The strength is that a comprehensive curriculum can be designed and carried out. The teachers have control over the learning experience.

One of weakness of this is that many qualified, committed teachers are needed. Another is that though teaching may have been conducted, learning may not have occurred. The commonest form of the religious instruction approach is the schooling-instructional model.
