Dr. Brett Salkeld is be offering a monthly series of talks for Catholic educators on curriculum permeation at St. Martin’s parish, the fifth session isMay 2nd 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.
May 2nd topic is: Permeating Social Studies, History, Health and Phys. Ed. Here again, there is Catholic content to be taught. No one should graduate from a Catholic school and not know something about Church history.And our students should definitely be equipped to answer some common false claims made about the Church.(Did you know, e.g., that medieval Christians never believed that the earth was flat?)But we also need to think about other questions.“Health is important, but is it possible to live well and meaningfully if we’re not healthy?”“What virtues might we cultivate through sport and exercise?”“What does the Church think about various political systems or about the participation of the faithful in politics?”Come and think about which big questions can inform your teaching in subjects like social studies, history, health and Phys. Ed.
