Part 2

This course, including its modular format, continues to support the ongoing commitment of Catholic teachers to religious literacy, personal and communal renewal and the building of faith community in our Catholic schools. The focus of this course is the prophetic voice of the Church. Through a close examination of the Judeo-Christian call to be a prophetic witness through the centuries, teachers are invited to align their current practice as Catholic educators with the prophetic voice of the Church today.

Through the insights of sacred scripture, Church teaching, and communal liturgical celebration, teachers are able to deepen their own spiritual commitment as prophetic voices in  Catholic schools. Awareness of the marginalized and the option for the poor, in all of its meanings informs teaching practice and student achievement in concrete ways. This awareness enables teachers to make faith connections within themselves and within their classroom curriculum. The integration of an informed faith with teaching practice enables teachers to support the Ontario Catholic Graduate School Expectations in a professional and powerful way.
