Analyzing and Evaluating Christian Religious Education Curricula

From: Volume 9, Issue 1: Spring 2012, Intergenerational Ministry Pages 27-42


Historically, there has been theological evaluation of Christian religious education curricula, but there is a lack of systematic pedagogical evaluation of Christian religious education material. Consumer and market demand for material has resulted in very little serious examining of the material being produced. Consequently, Christian religious education material used in the church context often remains virtually unchallenged. Using current research and existing evaluation documents, this exploration raises possible parameters for a method through which to examine and evaluate curriculum, recognizing the need for an approach that critically examines the approaches to teaching and learning that undergird existing Christian religious education materials.
