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.
What do the Ten Commandments have to do with my life? Help students address this question through an examination of Christian Morality and Social Justice. Using material relevant to the lives of today’s youth, students are asked to consider what a life of discipleship means for their choices and relationships through an exploration of the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes and the teachings of the Catholic Church. Additional chapters are included to allow for a greater depth of consideration of respecting life, sexuality and working for justice.
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.
