Books Info:

Train Up a Child free pdf "Train Up a Child" explores how private schools in Old Order communities reflect and perpetuate church-community values and identity. Here, Karen M. Johnson-Weiner asserts that the reinforcement of those values among children is imperative to the survival of these communities in the modern world. Surveying settlements in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York, Johnson-Weiner finds that, although Old Order communities have certain similarities in their codes of conduct, there is no standard Old Order school. She examines the choices each community makes - about pedagogy, curriculum, textbooks, even school design - to strengthen religious ideology, preserve the social and linguistic markers of Old Order identity, and to protect their own community's beliefs and values from the influence of the dominant society. In the most comprehensive study of Old Order schools to date, Johnson-Weiner provides valuable insight into how variables such as community size and relationship with other groups affect the role of these schools in maintaining behavioral norms and in shaping the Old Order's response to modernity.
