As We Teach and Learn: Recognizing Our Catholic Identity. Module 1: The Faith Community.
Wincek, Jean; O'Malley, Colleen; Ristau, Karen, Ed.; Haney, Regina, Ed.
The As We Teach and Learn program consists of an instrument to assess the Catholic dimension of a school and is designed to be used with study modules in a faculty- meeting format. Module topics include: "Faith Community"; "Faith Development"; "Religion Curriculum Articulation: Faith as the Root of all Instruction"; "Service Learning"; "Prayer and Liturgy Integration"; and "Social Justice." Each module has been created so that it can stand alone or be used with other modules. Each module contains an overview of the complete program, a general introduction, directions and suggestions for using the program, a suggested first faculty meeting outline, an introduction to the module, outlines of five meetings, materials which can be duplicated, a suggested final faculty meeting, and a school planning form. This module, "Faith Community," has teachers and the principal consider a critical element in the Catholic identity of their school. The module invites them to reflect on themselves as members of a faith community. Five group activities ("Storytelling"; "Imaging Connections"; "Listening and Responding"; "Focusing Growth"; and "Determining Action") are provided along with eight appendices. (RJC)
