Love and Mercy Teacher’s Guide

Supplemental Teacher's Guide with Reproducibles

This full-color teacher's guide features 12 ready-to-use lesson plans that will bring vividly to life the limitless of God's mercy throughout Salvation History, while showing young people how to integrate the corporal and spiritual works of mercy into everything they believe and do as Catholics.

Each self-contained lesson is teacher-written, classroom-tested, and scholar-reviewed, and provides an easier and more effective way to engage your students with God's mercy.

To help you differentiate instruction, this guide includes lessons at three grade levels. Each lesson is clearly marked with an intended audience and reading level. Based on the students you have from class to class and year to year, you can decide which resources to use with which students.

Each lesson is designed in a flexible, modular format, and includes:

  • Connections to the Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • Learning goals and connections to the Catechism of the Catholic Church
  • Biblical touchstones
  • Comprehension and critical thinking questions
  • Warm-up / bell work
  • Main activity such as primary source analysis, role-playing, structured debate, and many others
  • Homework and extension options
  • Bulletin Board extension options for elementary lessons

The veteran schoolteachers who wrote the twelve lessons included here know firsthand your needs in the classroom. Even the layflat binding makes it easy for you to photocopy all the provided handouts and activities. Lessons include:
