To ensure our Teacher Guides are used to assist teachers, and do not become a resource for the students, it is Saint Mary’s Press’ policy to only ship this Teacher Guide to a school. If you would like a copy shipped to a location other than a school, or would like to receive a review copy, please contact our customer care department.

How do we understand Jesus and deepen our relationship with him? This guide Illuminates Jesus as the fulfillment of the prophets, the Messiah who transforms and saves all people, and a guide and friend for youth today. As they explore the gift of the Holy Spirit, students will be encouraged to recognize the presence of God in their own lives. With additional chapters on the Gospel of Mark and Women in the New Testament, students will find many avenues that can lead them to Christ.

This new Teacher Guide that accompanies The Catholic Connections Handbook for Middle Schoolers, Second Edition includes a number of ways to assess students. Each chapter includes a quiz while a cumulative test follows the end of every four chapters. There are also suggestions in the Teacher Guides for a week-long project that can be used to enhance learning, or as a summative assessment. Many review activities can also be graded, used as assessments, or be turned in for credit.

The Catholic Connections curriculum is unique in that the Teacher Guide contains chapters that use the Bible as the primary text. This feature assists in developing students’ biblical literacy and knowledge, and demonstrates the close connection between Scripture and Tradition. Additionally, for students who use Breakthrough! The Bible for Young Catholics, there are several suggestions for using its supplemental articles for further learning.
