The intentional use of questions as a basis for educational feedback by James Arthur Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this project was to observe, categorize, test and utilize intentional questions as a model for educational feedback. A literature search from the gospels and other relevant sources, both ancient and contemporary, demonstrates this model. This model was designed and tested with adult ministry leaders. The categories of questions were derived from scripture and used in a fashion similar to that of the master teacher, Jesus. The result of the project is a model of interaction that is biblically supported, historically validated and experientially reliable. This model, when applied, enhances educational feedback and personal awareness and therefore leads to greater understanding. The value of learning is enhanced in all settings. This powerful and personal style of communication is universal in cross cultural applications
