The Word of Life Student Text makes learning the faith effective, engaging, and fun with Bible stories, contemporary children’s stories, lives of the saints, and activities for a variety of learning styles.
The text consists of core lessons, as well as four liturgical season lessons. Images used in each chapter range from photographs depicting a real-life situation, contemporary art depicting a Bible narrative, and sacred art that depicts an event in salvation history to draw students into the mysteries of Christ, leading them to understand doctrinal elements of the faith more fully.
Every chapter has a page for parents that provides a brief summary of what the child learned in class and a variety of ways to live the faith in daily life.
The School Teacher Manuals are written for teacher of all levels of formation. Using the ecclesial method, the detailed lesson plans equip teachers with an engaging presentation of the materials with little preparation required. Each lesson is written to help the teacher encourage dialogue that draws students into the lessons, where they not only learn facts about the faith but also know the why of the faith and how to live it out.
The School Teacher Manual brings together rich doctrinal presentation with effective pedagogy and methodology that will form and inform the teachers as they present the lessons.
The Word of Life Basic Catechist Formation equips teachers and catechists with a basic knowledge of the faith and an understanding of the key catechetical themes in Word of Life to help them to be effective in handing on the faith.
Word of Life includes built-in parent and family faith formation that supports parents in their important role as primary catechists of their children. Using both print and electronic media resources, Word of Life engages and enriches parents at varying levels of interest, knowledge, and formation.
