Catholic Schools (CS) Track

This series of workshops is aimed at assisting elementary and high school teachers and administrators in their knowledge of and ability to pass on the Catholic faith to students and their families.  This track is designed to serve the real-world needs of teachers in a three-fold manner by: 1) addressing practical and methodological classroom issues stemming from modern family and culture contexts, 2) assessing ways to handle common doubts and questions of children and teens, and 3) exploring how a classroom experience can be not only mind-growing, but truly soul-forming.  Actual classroom lesson plans that incorporate different educational and catechetical techniques are illustrated.  Workshops will also introduce the concept of incarnational dynamism in classroom teaching. This consists in drawing the student to the Person of Jesus Christ, (who is the content of all catechesis) through the use of contemporary and ancient sacred art, Christian and secular forms of music, popular and classical literature, film, and age-appropriate classroom activities. The aim in this track is form teachers to effectively witness to the Catholic faith in a manner that will authentically engage students and foster genuine evangelization.

We recommend to take these courses in the order they appear, although it is not required to do so.
