The Catholic High School Teacher: Building on Research. Proceedings of the Symposium Based upon the Study: Sharing the Faith: The Beliefs and Values of Catholic High School Teachers (New York, New York, March 5-7, 1987).
National Catholic Educational Association, Washington, DC.
This volume is the result of a national invitational symposium that sought to build on the research from "Sharing the Faith: The Beliefs and Values of Catholic High School Teachers." The full text of three major papers given at the symposium as well as excerpts from presentations by four Catholic high school teachers are presented. The first section of the volume presents a "Consensus Statement," detailing areas on which the participants generally agreed, including the purpose and staffing of the Catholic high school, assumptions about Catholic high schools, and recommendations for such schools. Titles and authors of the major conference papers are: (1) "Mindsets: A Way of Talking about Catholic High School Teachers" (John S. Nelson); (2) "The Self-Understanding of Catholic Secondary School Teachers" (Zeni Fox); and (3) "Building Responsive Catholic Schools: The Need for a Comprehensive, Long Range Diocesan Effort in the Religious Development of Catholic High School Teachers and Administrators" (Robert J. Starratt). (CB)
