Live Jesus in Our Hearts
We’re reframing framework for a new generation, where they’ll dive into Scripture!
"Live Jesus in Our Hearts" is a prayer said daily by Lasallians all over the world. Our new high school religion curriculum reflects this prayer, and our mission—that every young person would invite Jesus’ presence into their hearts. We sought to begin answering the needs of today’s youth, in a generation where the spiritual and religious landscape has shifted dramatically.
In Live Jesus in Our Hearts, we've created a space to wrestle with important faith and life questions, while digging deeply into Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church. A Focus Question launches each unit and chapter, which then build the knowledge and skills students need to respond in faith. Course one introduces the Old Testament, course two the New Testament. Guided by activity-rich and seamless teacher guides, the curriculum also ensures that all Framework points are addressed—it has received the declaration of conformity!
We’re setting a new standard.
We make strong connections to young people’s lived experiences!
Unit and chapter focus questions feature topics young people are wondering about, along with stories to connect real life to Scripture and Tradition.
We invite them to consider faith in Christ!
By connecting to young people’s real experiences, it invites them to consider and wonder the benefits of having faith. Specific features throughout the books invite young people to go beneath the surface.
We use Scripture!
Students will use significant portions of Scripture as a primary text. Young people will be asked to read and interpret the meaning of biblical texts and discover how they provide the foundation for different Catholic beliefs.
We offer seamless Teacher Guides and abundant online resources!
Our Teacher Guides enable quick and easy connections between the student books. Plus, each unit is replete with online resources that enhance your experience.
We are helping you help them master concepts!
Each unit ends with 3-4 pages of graphic organizers, helping students review and master the key points from each chapter.
