Dr. Brett Salkeld is be offering a monthly series of talks for Catholic educators on curriculum permeation at St. Martin’s parish, the second session is Feburary 6th 2019 at 7 pm. Look for a poster in your parish or school for future dates and topics. It is one way for Regina Catholic teachers to fulfill their C2PG.
This series is sponsored by the Catholic Teachers Guild of Regina.
February the 6th topic is There is no Neutral: Teaching Every Subject From a Catholic Perspective. Some people might think that at least some subjects simply cannot be taught from a Catholic perspective. What makes math class in a Catholic school any different? Math is math, right? While it is true that only some subjects (religion, yes, but also things like music or literature) can have specifically Catholic content, every subject is taught in a certain context. And that context is never neutral. If it isn’t Catholic, it’s going to be something else. Come and consider how our view of the world shapes our attitude towards every subject.
