What Makes Catholic Lesson Plans Different?
Teaching in a Catholic school or parish religious education program, you know that lesson planning for religion is different from any other topic. While teaching about God and faith is essential, so too must we strive to teach young people to love God and serve him and others. This is no easy task. It takes careful planning and the use of practical resources and engaging activities to pull it off well.
I outlined the best approach I know to lesson planning that leads students into a relationship with Christ in my book, Christ in the Classroom: Lesson Planning for the Heart and Mind.
Listed below you will find a collection of lesson plans that should help you teach religion.
