Catholic Curriculum: Re-Framing the Conversation
D'Orsa, Therese
International Studies in Catholic Education, v5 n1 p68-82 2013
This article provides a summary account of the book, "A Mission to the Heart of Young People: Catholic Curriculum", published in Australia in 2012. To preserve the true mission and religious integrity of Catholic schools in the face of secularism and "national economic requirements", it is argued that Catholic schools must possess a distinctive cultural heart which is an authentic Catholic curriculum. This curriculum must assist young people to engage constructively with the wisdom and faith of the Catholic community in a way that is meaningful to them. The principles and practices required to construct such a curriculum are outlined.
