Prospective teachers’ aptitude, and academic achievement


This qualitative research explores the appropriation of prophetic teaching methods as a mean of promoting professional growth in moral and peace education. The study investigates the methods and strategies teachers used to integrate prophetic principles within their pedagogical practices in diverse classroom settings. The researchers used purposive sampling technique to select teachers having experience of integrating prophetic teaching methods within their pedagogy. Through in-depth interviews and content analysis of teaching materials and classroom practices, the researchers found the challenges that teachers experience in their pedagogy with prophetic teaching principles to further the cause of moral education and peace-building among their students. The results showed that there are several strategies that teachers are adopting such as storytelling, enacting the prophetic ethics of care and justice, and merging critical theory of moral development with experiential learning, to inculcate within their students’ moral traits inspired by prophetic traditions. By teaching with a transformative spirit, they seek to bring to bear human dispositions rooted in compassion and a sense of social justice on the world, drawing on the early and enduring teachings of Prophet Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) as a beacon for moral-ethical conduct. This research contributes to the literature by providing an insider’s look into the operationalizing of these prophetic teaching methods in contemporary educational contexts and offering a model for teachers interested in integrating moral and peace education into their pedagogy.
