This guide for teachers of Horizons courses is designed as a companion piece for the training video titled Horizons: A Video Workshop for Teachers. Teachers can consult their program coordinator for further information. This guide is divided into two parts:
Part 1, "A Video Workshop for Teachers," is a detailed outline of the training video, with plenty of space provided for teachers to record personal reflections as well as insights generated by discussion with the program coordinator and other teachers.
Part 2, "Helpful Resources for the Volunteer Teacher," is a kind of toolbox of helpful resources on a wide variety of concerns confronted by the volunteer teacher. The contents of part 2 include the following:
- Religious Instruction or Faith Formation?
- The Developmental Characteristics and Needs of Adolescents.
- Building Positive Relationships with Young People.
- Effective Group Management.
- Effective Storytelling.
- Using the Scriptures.
- The Teacher as a Witness of Faith.
Teachers will want to use this material again and again for practical guidance in their work with young people.
