Animals in the Military; or War Elephants; by John M. Kistler, author of the books of that title.

Methodology

Although I do try to get students thinking by asking questions (the Socratic method), because most people are totally unfamiliar with these topics of animals in military history, most of it would be lecture. But I can also provide visuals and links to websites with photos and videos, and I am happy to take questions.

Background

I am a writer and teacher with 5 non fiction books published on animals in history. The last two were about animals in military history. I enjoy teaching, especially about animals. You can look at my books on Amazon by searching for John M. Kistler.

John has the qualities of a good teacher
1)Research and preparation- he is thoroughly prepared by presenting a broad view of his topic. He is likely to touch on points that others would over look. His love of learning is inspiring.2)Presentation- his approach is interesting and engaging. His skill as a writer comes across in his ability to tell a story and capture interest.
I would be very interested in taking a course from John.

I know John personally and professionally. I am the Salvation Army Chairperson in our town and John has preached alongside my husband who is a Chaplain and my Major who is a Pastor for our town's revival. John has proven in my experiences listening to him both preach Christ, as well as to advocate and educate regarding animal health and behaviors to be very skillful in his presentations. Often, he will employ his understanding of both Christianity and animals masterfully combined... totally engaging his congregation in his very comprehensive sermon.
