As We Teach and Learn: Recognizing Our Catholic Identity. Module 6: Social Justice.
McGinnis, James; McGinnis, Kathleen; 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, "Social Justice," focuses on Catholic social teaching and the challenge to Catholic education to make justice and peace central to teaching. Five specific topics include: "Is Catholic Social Teaching a Formal Part of the Religion Curriculum and Integrated into and Encouraged by the Entire Educational Process?"; "Provisions for Families Who Are Economically Poor"; "Are Students Challenged To Live in a Socially-Responsible Way?"; "Does the Student/Teacher Population Reflect the Racial and Ethnic Diversity of the Larger Community?"; "How To Promote Racial and Ethnic Diversity in our Schools"; and "How Are Issues of Ageism, Racism and Sexism Addressed?" Ten appendices are included. (RJC)
