Elementary Grades OUR SUNDAY VISITOR

Alive in Christ

Grades 1–8. School and parish use different books. A theologically comprehensive, developmentally appropriate religion curriculum that focuses on the life, mission, and saving work of Jesus Christ. Student Books have 21 chapters and present the Catholic faith in precise theological language, coupled with an emphasis on Catholic practices, images, and models of faith to build Catholic identity. They are organized around seven key themes of Catholic teaching that repeat each year with a gradelevel focus. At the heart of each lesson is a unique pedagogy that mirrors the divine pedagogy—the gradual and relational way God teaches us so that we can know him, be guided by the Holy Spirit to respond with faith and love, and accept the gift of new life in Christ. Sacred Scripture is foundational to every lesson. Teacher Manuals include background pages, point-of-use information, tips and strategies. Step-by-step wraparound lesson plans lead them through the three-step catechetical process: Invite, Discover, Live. Family + Faith pages provide families with the tools they need to talk about, and more consciously live the faith at home. Online resources provide support for teachers and families including lesson-planning tools, interactive chapter and unit reviews, custom test building, connections to Sunday readings, and more. A music component, Songs of Scripture, features songs that teach and reinforce the meaning of Scripture stories and integrate music into the lessons. Children encounter models of Catholic faith through People of Faith Cards for each grade level. Cards are illustrated in art styles chosen for each grade and are connected to specific chapters in the student books. Grades 1 through 6 available in bilingual editions. (©2014)

Be My Disciples

Grades 1–6. School and Parish use different books. Uses a Christ-centered and balanced approach to catechesis with doctrine, Scripture, tradition and spirituality. Leads children and their families to grow in their conversion to Jesus Christ, to accept the demands of discipleship, to decide each day to choose life in Christ, and to live as active members of the Catholic Church. Student Books include four new features: Disciple Power which connects the lesson content to virtues that help children grow as disciples; The Church Follows Jesus which reinforces Catholic identity as students examine the difference the church has made and still makes in the world; I Follow Jesus provides an opportunity for children to make a choice to follow Jesus each week; Looking Ahead gives a preview of the chapter’s focus, content and goal; and With My Family is a review of the content, ideas for sharing faith, family prayer and a special section to assist parents. Teacher Manuals include background information, skill-building tips, and ideas for enriching the lessons. A comprehensive unit opener helps assess students’ prior knowledge about faith concepts and helps teachers plan lessons that improve student retention of the material. Each chapter has a time-saving lesson planner page that uses a three-step methodology: explore, discover, decide. Purchase student book in English and receive a free one-year subscription to the eBook. Available in a bilingual edition. (©2013).

Elementary Grades SADLIER RELIGION

We Believe, Catholic Identity

Grades 1–6. School and parish use different books. Equips and inspires students to defend their faith and go out into the world as Catholics, proud of who they are and what they bring to their parish, school, family and community. Each grade level includes four 8-page Catholic Identity Retreats that could be used at the beginning of the year, at Advent, during Lent and at the end of the year. Or they can be used whenever it fits best into the class schedule. Each retreat is based on one of the Four Pillars of the Catechism and can be presented in one class period. Retreats can also be extended into a longer period of time if that is what the teacher wants to do. These retreats are not lessons, but rather they are designed to inspire the spirituality of the children and to give them an opportunity to encounter Christ in Scripture and in Catholic prayer. Retreats also include Family Pages for use at home. Student Books include seasonal chapters and over 14,000 content-based Project Disciple activities. Teacher Manuals from the older Project Disciple edition work with this edition, but need the new Leader Guide component in order to lead the four retreats. Assessments, Review and Resource Books, Family Book/Home Lesson Plans, and Music CDs from the older Project Disciple edition are also used with the new Catholic Identity edition. Available in a bilingual edition. (©2015) 30511 30610

The Way God Teaches

Daily Inspiration for Catholic Educators. Catholic teachers have a special vocation to reach the hearts and minds of young people even in the midst of never-ending lesson planning, paper grading, and trying to lead a balanced life. These 366 short, thought-provoking reflections can help them stay focused on their Christ-centered mission by providing an opportunity for renewal and affirmation every day. Paperback, 288 pages.

Catechesis and the Divine Pedagogy. The way God reveals the truth about himself and his creation is called the divine pedagogy. The word comes from a Greek word meaning “to lead the child.” God’s own manner of leading us, his children, toward himself is his pedagogy. Catechists and teachers are called to hand on the truths of the faith not merely by doing their best according to human standards of theology and educational methodology, but rather by echoing God’s own way of teaching.

What Catholic Schools Are Saying About Spirit of Truth

MO RE F RO M S O P HI A I NS T I T U T E

Supplements to Bring the Faith Alive NEW!

“Spirit of Truth doesn’t present religion as a simple set of facts and rules dictating how we should act. It connects students with the Faith and leads them to understand why their Faith matters in their day-to-day living.” Chris Mominey, Secretary for Education, Archdiocese of Philadelphia

“The lesson plans are easy to follow and give just enough instruction to be helpful. As a veteran teacher, I appreciate the lesson plan organization without having my ‘hands tied’ or my ‘hands held’ throughout the lesson.” Idaho Teacher

“As a middle school religion teacher, I have found it extremely difficult to find appropriate resources that engage students. Spirit of Truth is grade-level appropriate, addresses ‘real world’ current issues, and promotes higher-level thinking.” New York Teacher

Theology of the Body: Living Our Call to Communion

This guide for upper-middle and high school students includes 15 lessons on God’s beautiful plan for human sexuality. Students explore the teachings of Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and learn how to live out our Christian Faith in the modern world, exploring the importance of purity, alternatives to assisted reproductive technologies, and fertility care methods that work with, rather than against, the human body. See page 27 for pricing.

The Seven Sacraments: The Foundation of Christian Living These 10 lessons provide you with all the tools you need to go beyond the textbook and lead your students to encounter Christ in the Sacraments. Available in both Elementary and High School Editions. See page 27 for pricing.

Love and Mercy: The Story of Salvation These 12 lessons will bring vividly to life the limitlessness of God’s mercy throughout Salvation History, while showing young people how to integrate the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy into everything they believe and do as Catholics. See page 27 for pricing.
