CATHOLICISM: School Enrichment
Engage middle and high school students more deeply and interactively with CATHOLICISM School Enrichment. Bring students around the world and deep into the Faith with Bishop Barron, a trusted source of authentic Church teaching whom Cardinal Francis George has called “one of the Church's best messengers."
Word on Fire has partnered with the Archdiocese of New York to create 46 video vignettes and companion lesson plans, drawing from the award-winning CATHOLICISM series and the vast expertise of twelve New York teachers. These materials can be used creatively by any teacher to enhance core religion curriculum in middle or high school, and bring the beauty, truth, and goodness of the Faith more vividly into the classroom.
During the pilot in the New York schools, these materials improved class participation and supported teachers with new and exciting content. Designed as a virtual tool-kit, teachers can easily use these materials and share them with students. High School materials follow the USCCB framework and Middle School materials fit virtually any diocesan curriculum.
