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.

Where do I find God in my life and how has the Church found God throughout the ages? Through a consideration of prayer, students are invited to deeper relationship with God. With special attention on the Lord’s Prayer, students explore the familiar and are encouraged to find relevancy for the own lives. The second half of this teacher guide examines Church History and allows students to see the growth and development of the Church through the ages. In this exploration, students are asked to situate themselves this particular moment of the Church and allowed to consider the implications for their faith.

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.
