Product Description

Synopsis

This title includes book and DVD. "The AWE Project" reminds us that awe is the appropriate response to the unfathomable wonder that is creation - from the magnificence of galaxies, to the complex and brilliant process of cell-differentiation, and the miracle of the human hand (product of 14 billion years of evolution). Imagine how much richer learning will be for all ages when we intentionally cultivate a sense of appreciation and wonder. AWE is also the acronym for Fox's proposed style of learning - an approach to balance the three Rs. This approach to learning, eldering, and mentoring is intelligent enough to honour the teachings of the Ancestors, to nurture Wisdom in addition to imparting knowledge, and to Educate through Fox's 10 Cs. The 10 Cs are the core of the AWE philosophy and process of education, and include: compassion, contemplation, and creativity."The AWE Project" does for the vast subject of 'learning' what Fox's Reinvention of Work did for vocation and Original Blessing did for theology. With passion and conviction, Fox turns conventional 'education' upside down, shakes out what is no longer working, and offers visions of what can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 11 Oct 2012
By Rev. Edwin Yates - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The A.W.E Project should become a required and training for all those preparing for licensure as Teachers in any field. This information and experience of using the 10 C of ancient wisdom can truly transform the status of education as it is today. I could see use of these methods contained within to; 1) improve the outcomes of education, 2) provide for a more valued education and 3) reduce the potential for 'drop-out'. Dr. Fox has written to excite and value the realationship between the teaching and the concept, where both the Teacher and the Student exchange, share and learn together, so that both individual are both Teacher & Student. Had this been available in my training to be a Teacher decades ago, I may still be in that profession offering the A.W.E. to this generation.
2.0 out of 5 stars Unoriginal 23 Jan 2014
By anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
He acknowledges the Waldorf school as an inspiration somewhere; sure seems like it was more than just a muse for this work.Also, the description made it sound like he was flipping public education on its head, when it's actually just a supplementary after -school program that he's got going.
5.0 out of 5 stars a double sense of urgency 26 Dec 2013
By Warren Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Matthew Fox is a true visionary. I enjoyed this book because he speaks with an urgency -- both because our country's education system needs a post-modern over-haul NOW, and because Fox recognizes he is getting older so wants to share his life-experiences with more urgency. Hearing Matthew Fox speak to a mesmerized audience is the best -- reading one of his passionate books is a close second.
