Sinossi

As the Pagan and Wiccan communities grow, so does the need for teachers, mentors, and role models. For those who want to share their knowledge, teaching can be a very empowering and spiritual experience. But practicing the Craft and teaching it are two very different things.

In this timely guide, popular Wiccan author and teacher Thea Sabin presents clear techniques for creating a curriculum, including sample syllabi. She also provides instruction and guidance on crucial aspects of becoming an effective and inspiring teacher of Wicca and Paganism.

—Develop teaching methods for adult learners
—Manage group dynamics
—Give great presentations
—Find and screen students
—Set up online classes
—Cultivate patience and humility

You will also find interviews and advice from several respected Pagan teachers, such as Patrick McCollum, Holli Emore of Cherry Hill Seminary, Christopher Penczak, and T. Thorn Coyle.

5.0 su 5 stelle Practical Tool for Pagan Teachers 13 giugno 2012
Di Garnet - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
This book should have been written years ago...and too bad it wasn't. Coming from an author with many years experience in teaching both a spiritual path and in regular education, this work contains information that any pagan who wishes to teach can use.

The book talks about getting started teaching on-line, on screening students for a group, on dealing with trainees who have personal or health issues...even on what to do with actual "trolls." She touches upon issues with legal ministry and forming a legal religious organization, as well as the tender issue of whether pagans should or shouldn't charge for their work and what you do when a student is simply not working out. She talks about danger signs in regards to potential burn-out for teachers and what you can try to do avoid it. Plus much much more, all of it easy to read and well-organized.

Interspersed within the work are quotes from various other coven leaders and teachers, including some well-known names, and stories from her own years of running a traditional group. Some of the stories are funny and some are scary and many of them will sound familiar to anyone who has been in the pagan community for a while (even if not all of the details are the same). There is priceless encouragement here and also fair warning that sometimes you just have to "face the music" and deal with bad situations.

This is a book for those who are running a group or think they might want to run a group and, most especially, for those who are having doubts and problems with running a group. It may not immediately make you a terrific teacher easily capable of "herding cats," (ie, strong-willed pagans and Wiccans) but it will help you lay the foundation for becoming a good teacher eventually...once you've gone through a few trials of your own and learned some life lessons.

The author definitely knows that good teachers learn as much from their students as the students learn from their teachers. And that it's hard work, no matter how much you might love it.

Great gift for someone intending to run their own group someday.

5.0 su 5 stelle Not what I expected but still good. 28 maggio 2012
Di Shandy Sanford - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
When I requested this book I actually thought it was something else. This is really a guide for folks who want to teach Wicca and Pagan traditions to others. While I have no interest in teaching others, I still found this book interesting.
I think this would be a great resource for any one considering teaching. There are a lot of thing covered that I never would have considered. While most is things that are just commonsense, many are things that are significant when working with those on this path of life. There are factors many might not have considered. I liked how in the first chapter Ms Sabin talked about how to decide if you're really ready to teach others and how to figure out if you are. There are many things that can help you choose, if you're ready or not. Since many people who choose this path are forced to learn for themselves traditions and paths, it would be nice to have knowledgeable people teaching others. This book would be a great resource for those who are teaching others or considering it.

Received an ARC from NetGalley.

4.0 su 5 stelle Good Resource for Everyone 2 maggio 2012
Di Aisha - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
I liked this book. It was well researched, very well written and laid out in a way that made it easy for the reader to go back and forth as they needed to. Thea made creating a syllabus easy for those who aren't trained as teachers. There were enough stories from new and old pagan teachers that highlighted each point, I particularly liked reading Chris Penzack's quotes, he was very funny.

Even though I may not wish to become a teacher, I believe this book will make it easier for those who choose this path. Thea made you look deep within for not just what you wished to impart to your students but what you wished they would learn ( which yes, it's very different). The author pushed the reader to truly examine why they wished to teach, what were the true goals of becoming a teacher. She even tackled the sticky subject of charging or not charging for teaching. She imparted much information about how to control your class, control your message and control your image.

I particularly loved that there were so many different styles of teaching talked about as well as how to work with different and sometimes difficult students. She highlighted how to network and create a class, how to research and find good students (basically students who fit with you and your teaching style); she even covers legalities of teaching, of space rental and what happens if you teach from home. Online teaching is also covered, I must say that as a student I never really thought about how much goes into the teacher getting to stand in front of the class, but now I have a little more respect for the ones who are willing to throw themselves up there and actually impart some serious knowledge.
If your belief is that teaching is for you, I would highly recommend this book as a resource. If you wish to know more about teaching then this book is also for you. I will be adding this to my collection.

5.0 su 5 stelle Craft leaders need more books like this one 21 settembre 2012
Di David D. Salisbury - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
Although there a lot of books out there teaching the various traditions within Wicca and Paganism, there aren't very many focused on teaching Pagans how to teach others. Thea Sabin's latest book quenches a great need for leadership training within the Pagan community.

This book covers everything from dealing with difficult students to developing detailed lesson plans at a variety of student levels. Readers with teaching experience will smile while reading Sabin's example stories, discovering that there are certain things that happen to many Pagan teachers across the board. The final chapter on going from teacher to clergy is highly valuable and something anyone considering such a role should check out.

Please note that this book is about teaching. The intention of the author is not to give information on either Wicca or Paganism but to give Wiccans and Pagans TEACHING information. Miss Sabin has a Master's degree in Education. She states on her website that she wants to help Pagans have a better start than she did when she first began to teach while in college. She states in the book that the examples involve Wicca because that is what she knows best. If anyone is interested in teaching Wicca or Paganism, they should already have sufficient knowledge about the subject matter to do so. I have 30 years experience teaching everyone from preschoolers to adults and teaching subjects from complex technical IT classes to music. I already know enough about Wicca to teach classes. I have to teach a public class on Wicca as a prerequisite for my third degree. I wanted information on TEACHING and I got everything I wanted and a whole lot more. I was also greatly impressed that the author included copious direct quotes (she obviously spoke to these people directly) from various people in the field including but certainly not limited to: Holli Elmore, founder of the Pagan Round Table in SC and a teacher of Neopagan religions; Ella Evert Hopman, herbalist and Druid; Christopher Penczak, well-known Wiccan author (great books!); and Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, a renowned Pagan elder and founder of the Church of All Worlds. If you removed all references to Wicca and Paganism this would still be a great teaching manual. But her Resources section is a terrific list of websites, books, software, etc., etc. on an incredible array of information about teaching, learning, dealing with people, Pagan organizations, Wiccan organizations, ethics, group dynamics just to name a few. There are a LOT of books with wonderful information on Wicca and Paganism but not very many (if any) with this amount of detail about teaching directed at those who have the knowledge of their subject but not the practical experience of actually teaching others.
