Description from the publisher:
Dr. Muhammad Isma’il, a teacher, a educationist, suggests practical teaching strategies that can make these part time schools a real force in molding the thought and behavior of the younger generation. “Full-time Islamic schools with the real emphasis on Islamic education may do a better job of molding the personalities of children,” he says, “but where such schools are not around, weekend schools have to step in. And even though their instructional time may be limited to four or five hours a week, nonetheless their impact has been very significant.” The performance of the students graduated from these weekend Islamic schools “shows that whatever students have learned during the relatively short periods of instruction at weekend schools has not gone to waste and that the efforts of their teachers have not been in vain.”
The teaching techniques and strategies presented in these pages have been thoroughly tested and are being used extensively. As such not only volunteer teachers of the weekend Islamic schools can benefit from them, but all other interested in teaching may find them helpful in improving their classroom instruction, making it more effective, lively, and interesting.
