About-

Though much has been written about ethic of care and its importance in education, little is available to guide Christian educators who desire to demonstrate a disposition of care toward self, learners, colleagues, and community. As this book makes clear, a Christian ethic of care serves to illuminate our relationship with God while also helping to flesh out what care looks like in various contexts, including and especially teaching and teacher education. How Shall We Then Care? invites engagement with questions not just about what teachers should know about care, but about how they are to care for those in their circle of influence, what it means to care, what counts as care, what practices nurture care, and how care is experienced. The authors are teachers and teacher educators who, like you, have struggled to find answers to these questions. The settings for these explorations span the spectrum from K-12 classrooms to Christian and public higher education, covering issues such as trauma-informed classroom practice, the use of role-playing games for teaching ethics, the transition from teacher candidate to novice teacher, the crucial interface between care and inclusive education, and the vital role empathy plays in educational care.

Endorsements & Reviews-

How Shall We Then Care? explores the essential caring aspect of teaching through theoretical pieces, empirical studies, and autobiographical snap shots. . . . The book breathes care and concern for the profession of teaching, the art of preparing teachers to serve in classroom, the persons who are teachers, and the students who are nurtured by teachers. Anyone concerned with reflecting on the nature of teaching will find this book helpful.”

—Albert Boerema, Calvin University



“The range of essays in this book helps the reader understand much more deeply what it means for teachers to care for their students, how teachers can care for students who have been through significant emotional trauma in their lives, why empathy is so important for compassionate teachers, how spiritual practices can sustain teaching, and so much more. This book will change the way you teach.”

—Bill Boerman-Cornell, Professor of Education, Trinity Christian College, and author of Graphic Novels in High School and Middle School Classrooms
