Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lots of Example, Somewhat Short  Aug 22, 2007
This book draws comparisons between things like sharpening a hoe or feeding chickens to things that we need to do in life. Now if you are a teacher and you want to see how to draw a comparison between having a sharp hoe and studying the Word of God then this may be the book for you. If you are interested in reading a book that talks about farm life, then this may be the book for you. If you grew up in a rural area and want to be remined of that, then this may be the book for you. If you are looking for a book that goes into detail about teaching then you will be somewhat disappointed. The chapters are somewhat short and most of the chapter is taken up with the farmlife talk.
 
A Different Take on the Subject  Jun 22, 2007
If you are looking for a detailed book on how to improve your teaching, this is not it, but if you are looking for a few interesting stories of growing up on a farm and examples of how to incorporate life experiences into lessons, this may be the book for you. Every chapter has some account of growing up in a rural area and Johnson, a seminary professor, gives a brief explanation of how that helped his teaching. Some of these things are a bit of a stretch and I was left with the feeling that he could have gone more into detail in some areas, but it is a better book than some of my impulse buys on the same subject.
 
Using metaphors and real-life wisdom drawn from farm life  May 23, 2003
Cows, Pigs, & Chickens Made Me A Better Teacher: Basic Principles For Christian Teachers is a beautifully written guide for Christians who teach in Sunday School, lead Bible Study Programs, engage in homeschooling, or who work in Christian educational institutions at all levels. Using metaphors and real-life wisdom drawn from farm life, Cows, Pigs, & Chickens Made Me A Better Teacher offers encouragement, emphasizes the importance of a good attitude, and provides directly applicable general advice for improving personal communication and enhancing overall effectiveness with respect to the art of instruction.
 
Wow, what a book!  Mar 21, 2003
This book will really help me in working at becoming a better teacher. There have been many times I have presented a "raw" lesson. The ideas the author presents are unique. Every teacher should read this book for refreshing ideas on teaching.
