Reviews for Supporting Modern Teaching in Islamic Schools: Pedagogical Best Practice for Teachers

Professor Amzat and his team have shown systematic thinking in catching up with contemporary developments in education and teaching while abiding by to the Core Values of Islam. The contributions meet the critical academic standards needed in such an important analysis. The diversity of topics and the deep discourse by the authors from different academic backgrounds and expertise from around the world is indicative of the crucial importance of the book to academia in general and those in education and teacher training in particular. I recommend it highly. - Assoc. Prof. Dr. Jabal M. Buaben, Formerly of the School of Philosophy, Theology and Religion, The University of Birmingham, UK This book by Professor Ismail Hussein Amzat is very important as it describes pedagogical situations and reforms in the context of Islamic education across the globe. It explores the contesting modernity and traditionality of Islam in terms of pedagogical practices to find more effective solutions to educational problems. It enriches the literary collection about aspects of Islamic schooling, the information of which has been underrepresented in research and publications. - Dr. H. Raihani, Professor of Islamic Education Studies at UIN Sultan Syarif Kasim Riau, Indonesia The book is comprehensive and excellent. Its three parts cover a variety of content: knowledge, pedagogy, teaching methods in Part One, professional development, responsibility and lifelong learning in Part Two and Assessment, Islamic Curriculum Reform and Islamization of Knowledge in Part 3. It will be of interest to all teachers in Islamic schools. The writers - Muslims and non-Muslims - come from different parts of the world with varying experiences in teaching, some represent a majority while some represent a minority in their respective country, Hence, each chapter has something new to offer to all readers. - Rosnani Hashim, Adjunct Prof. of Social Foundation of Education, KOED, IIUM. Founder of the Hikmah (Wisdom) Pedagogy of Philosophical Inquiry This is a very courageous book, combining Islamic education with modern pedagogical thought. Personhood formation is emphasized instead of just socialization. It shows best practices for students as well as the way teachers can sustain via adequate curricula the flourishing of the students. - Professor Siebren Miedema, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands This rich book presents an impressive range of studies into teaching in Islamic schools from several continents. It offers a wealth of information for scholars in the field and for other people interested in the current development of Islamic education, its transitions and debates. - Dr. Geir Skeie, UNESCO Chair and Professor of Religious Education, University of Stavanger, Norway
