We are thrilled to spend the day with all 3rd-5th grade teachers in the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Participants will enjoy a one-day program that reflects on the beauty and gift of the Eucharist. This Workshop blends scholar presentations with interactive pedagogical sessions, giving you a chance to explore content with a respected college professor, as well as simulate practical teaching strategies with ready-to-use classroom materials. Share best practices with your fellow teachers and engage in both formal and informal discussions. Registration for this event is being handled by your principal and the Archdiocese of San Francisco.
Engaging sessions by a catechetical scholar provide background knowledge so you can confidently engage students with our Faith.
You'll explore your vocation as a teacher, coming to see your calling as a witness to Christ in the classroom.
A veteran teacher follows each scholarly presentation with research-based teaching strategies, giving you immediate ways to apply this knowledge in the classroom.
Receive a free, classroom-tested teacher's guide featuring 10-12 lessons with classroom activities and sacred art.
