Teaching Young Dogs Old Tricks! Management and Spiritual Lessons From America’s Most Selective School — Clown College
Our success in integrating faith and learning for a postmodern generation lies not in learning new tricks but using old evangelistic practices we learned when we first came to Christ. By doing so, we are teaching young dogs (our students) old tricks. The focus of this paper is on how one of the authors uses top 10 lists to tell his personal story to communicate business and spiritual principles. It begins with a discussion of top 10 lists and how they can be used effectively in a classroom. The main portion of the paper presents “Top 10 Lessons from America’s Most Selective College,” which communicates 10 important business and spiritual truths learned at Clown College. The final portion of the paper discusses how others might use personal stories to integrate faith and learning in the business classroom.
