As We Teach and Learn: Recognizing Our Catholic Identity. Assessment Package.
Ford, Judith E.; 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. The assessment instrument is intended to help faculty evaluate current practices, both in their own classrooms and in the wider school community, which serve as indicators for the Catholicity of the school. Suggested uses for the material include self-reflection, faculty inservice, discussion, and the school accreditation process. (RJC)
