Printer-friendly version

Dr. Brett Salkeld is be offering a monthly series of talks for Catholic educators on curriculum permeation at St. Martin’s parish, the fourth 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.  
April the 5th topic is: Permeating English and the Fine Arts.  On the one hand, literature and the arts are easier to permeate with Catholic faith because there are such things as Catholic novels, paintings, sculptures, chorales and cantatas.  On the other hand, permeation is more than teaching Catholic content.  It also includes context.  It ask questions like, “What is a Catholic attitude towards literature in general, Catholic or otherwise? And “Why has the Church produced such a wealth of great art?” and “Can the creative act of the artist connect that person with the Creator in some way?”  Come and think about how permeating English and the Fine Arts is about Catholic content, but also so much more.
