Important Questions and Answers
Teachers of Religious Education seek to put into practice teaching methods and strategies that are faithful to our Catholic tradition and that also respect the faith experience and stage of development of our students. Our Religious Education curriculum focuses on three stages:
1. Participation and Experience
- New learning begins with our students' own experience.
2. Exploration and Explanation
- Our students explore their experiences in light of Catholic teachings.
- Our students are encouraged to deepen their understanding of themselves and their relationship with God, others and the world.
3. Appropriation and Application
- Our students' learning is applied to real life situations.
- Through reflections, essays, media analysis, projects, and discussions our students apply the knowledge they have received to contemporary events and past history.
