School-Parish-Family: Revitalizing the educational triad

SMP3474HS  L0101
Offered in Winter 2010  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

Vital to Catholic education are the positive, constructive relationships between the parish, the home, and the school. The course investigates those relationships, progressing through three modules. The first provides an in-depth review of normative pastoral and theological literature on the significance of the collaboration between parish, home, and school for fulfilling the mission of Christian education. A second module examines some of the societal and cultural shifts that contribute to making the triad less effective or even dysfunctional and require a re-thinking of what it means. The final module identifies and explores areas, which serve as promising starting points for revitalization: sacramental preparation and continuing faith formation of teachers. Teaching Method: Lectures Means of Evaluation: Preparation and participation (10%) Interview and analysis (30%) Seminar leadership (30%) Pastoral theological project (30%)
