Learning from the past
“Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
This saying, though often repeated, is a stern reminder that history is important to understand. Secular textbooks and professors increasingly “revise” history by leaving out religious references. The History Education major provides the prospective teacher of history with competent knowledge of historical events, as considered through a biblical worldview. With courses in education and history, you’ll acquire an understanding of the global development of civilization as well as solid pedagogical skills for teaching. Get ready to gain experience in planning, supplementing, and evaluating the teaching-learning process.
History for future generations
Andrew Vawter (’06) teaches five sections of senior Economics at Boyd High School in McKinney, TX. He is also head junior varsity football coach and the quarterbacks coach for the varsity. “I really enjoy the interaction with the kids,” Vawter said. “I try to emphasize free-market economics, because that is what’s happening out there right now. I have found that the classes I took at Maranatha were very beneficial. All of the economics, history, and social studies classes I took were directly related to what I do now.”
Our faculty knows education
“I love helping my students acquire the tools they will need to be successful in the classroom,” Dr. Christine Lincoln said. “My desire is to train quality Christian teachers.”
Dr. Lincoln brings both academic and practical skills to her classes. She taught in an elementary school for 20 years, but also earned a master’s degree and a Doctor of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
