Quincentennial of Evangelization: A Time for Reflection and Action.
Herrera, Marina; Gaston, Maria Luisa
This document is intended to help Catholic educators and their students examine efforts at evangelization over the 500 year period since Christopher Columbus' voyage united the eastern and western hemispheres. The first of three sections has study guides for teachers focusing on six themes: (1) the legacy of Columbus; (2) evangelization: then and now; (3) missionaries: witnesses to the Christian message; (4) the Americas: an encounter of peoples; (5) ecology and the Christian; and (6) the new America: an exchange of gifts. Each of these study guides has three parts: (1) a reflective article that gives the instructors some basic information on one of the six themes; (2) learning activities grouped by grade level that can be integrated into different subjects including mathematics, history, geography, literature, science, and religious studies; and (3) a list of resources that teachers may examine to expand their information base on the particular theme. The second section provides a list of resource material on topics dealing with the quincentennial of evangelization. This resource list is divided into 11 sections: (1) publications and video resources for the fifth centenary; (2) promotional resources; (3) liturgical resources; (4) educational or learning resources; (5) other publication resources; (6) newsletter resources; (7) magazine resources; (8) video or audiocassette resources; (9) a "mixed bag" of resources; (10) bilingual resources; and (11) additional organizational resources. The third and last section presents 13 pictures and brief biographies of 15 key figures involved in the early evangelization of the Americas. A quiz on Columbus that can be used as an introduction to the whole study is included. (DK)
