Living Your Mission: Designing Curriculum for Everyday Discipleship. In Every Classroom.
Speaker: John Meehan – Instructional Coach and English Teacher, Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High School
Speaker: Carl Patton – Assistant Head of School and Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Bishop Denis J. O’Connell High School
What makes a Catholic education different from public schools? How can you align every unit in every class at every grade level to serve your school’s Mission Statement? Religion classes and first Friday masses are not enough: a fully-integrated faith-based curriculum can radically enrich a student’s faith and transform the appeal of your school. This session outlines a step-by-step method through which Bishop O’Connell High School redesigned a school-wide curriculum: enhancing faith education in every content area, with concrete steps and a clear action plan for your school.
- Establish a curriculum that teaches everyday discipleship through faith-based instruction in all content areas.
- Implement tiers of faith-based curriculum, proclaiming the Gospel throughout every unit and course in your school.
