Activities for Catholic Social Teaching
Providing unique, hands-on applications for teenagers, Activities for Catholic Social Teaching offers a chance for teens to put into action the Church's body of social teaching. Consistent with the formula that action as a part of justice is a gospel value, each unit involves activities that motivate teenagers to do something to effect change.
Through a variety of methods and styles, teenagers will learn to live out Catholic social teaching. Some of the activities are personal and reflective, while others are more hands-on, including story-telling, roleplays, interviews, and analysis of contemporary media. Activities for Catholic Social Teaching provides teachers with clear references, concise introductions, and step-by-step directions which allow for easy explanation. Activities for Catholic Social Teaching covers the eight specific areas of social justice as outlined in the textbook, Catholic Social Teaching by Michael Pennock:
- the body of Catholic social teaching
- right to life
