Webinar Recording: 13 Ways to Become a Better Religious Educator During Summer Break

It was so great to have everyone at the summer break webinar in June. Whether you are a catechist or religion teacher yourself or a catechetical leader looking for resources to give to your volunteers and staff this summer, I hope you will enjoy this recording of the presentation as well as the free handouts that go with it. The webinar lasted about an hour and can certainly be viewed in sections. If you are using the video as a guide to each exercise, I suggest pausing it after each explanation and then going through the steps in the handout or in the book, 31 Days to Becoming a Better Religious Educator.
