Teacher as Minister. Daily Plan Book.
National Catholic Educational Association, Washington, DC.
The second in a set of five publications on the educational "ministry," this document is a plan book intended to help Catholic school teachers in their dual role of educating students in academic matters and increasing students' faith in the Catholic doctrine. A brief paper, "The Teacher as Minister," by Dr. Elinor Ford, is presented that claims that the first responsibility of the teacher as minister is to determine each student's academic aptitude and achievement, learning rate and style, and self-concept. A second responsibility is to demand that students be the best persons they can be. Third, teachers should include in their own plans time for reading about and reflecting on theories and practices in their subject discipline, the psychology of learning, and religious education. Teachers should then revise their practices based on their reading and reflection. Fourth, teachers should ascertain if students are reaching out to grasp their destiny. The major part of the book is set up with one page per day, with categories for "equipment needed,""attendance," and "other" printed at the bottom of each page. Simulated plans at the primary and secondary level demonstrate ways to use the book and space is provided for outlining the teacher's daily schedule and recording specific information for substitute teachers.
