Celebrating Saints - Teacher Guide explores the lives of 18 faith-filled men and women, who are proclaimed saints by the Catholic Church and as role models of discipleship - men and women who inspire others to serve God in their everyday life.
Written and designed for Teachers, Celebrating Saints - Teacher Guide will enhance classroom delivery within a Religious Education Program and is linked to the general capabilities of the Australian Curriculum.
The activities are designed to emphasise the importance of saints’ feast days within the Church calendar year, and comprehensively explain the reason these saints are recognised and honoured by the Catholic Church.
The unique features of this guide include:
-Learning focus statements and key concepts covered in the unit of work
-Teaching strategies, resource materials and activities that match the style and scope used in other areas of the curriculum
-Key questions to promote informed discussion
-Essential background information plus additional teaching ideas
-Suggestions for prayer to complete your lesson
-Australian case studies and interviews with Spirit-filled men and women living their faith today
-Special emphasis on saints linked to names and the sacrament of Confirmation
Celebrating Saints - Teacher Guide is designed to support educators when using the Celebrating Saints - Student workbook in the classroom.
