As We Teach and Learn: Recognizing Our Catholic Identity. Module 2: Faith Development.
Zukowski, Angela Ann; 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 Development," focuses on creating a Christian environment where faith can grow and mature. Five specific topics include: "What Is Faith for Me?"; "Nurturing Faith"; "Journey of Faith"; "Mission and Faith: A Call for Transformation"; and "Faith: The Foundation of Discipleship." Eleven appendices are included. (RJC)
