COURSE OVERVIEW

Faith & Life 8 : Our Life in the Church with activity guide.

COURSE NOTES

RELIGION: Two or four days weekly, 30 to 45 minutes per day.

This is the second half of a wonderful Confirmation program that discusses Catholic apologetics mostly.  We prefer this text for Grade 8 since the activity guide’s questions are so incisive and really draw the child out about his faith.  Have him spend quality time in essay responses to different questions drawn from the workbook.  Encourage the student to write about two pages (double-spaced) per week in response to one or more of the questions put to him or in response to one or more of the key terms he is asked to define in the workbook, filling in the workbook itself with simple phrase answers.  The pace should be about seven chapters per quarter, which will give you plenty of time to work through the essay writing.

This year have the student memorize the Holy Days of Obligation (CCC 2177), Prayer to the Holy Spirit (CCC 2671); Nicene Creed (CCC 195 and 197 ff), the Memorare, the Hail Holy Queen, and the Precepts of the Church (CCC 2042-2043).

For quarterly reporting, be sure to report this course as “Faith & Life #8,” identifying the Level 8 clearly.  Report the chapter numbers completed for the quarter.  For a work sample, send a copy of the quarter’s best essay.

Scheduling Suggestions: Two or four days weekly, 30 to 45 minutes per day.
