The tasks are designed to not only focus and engage the students, but will also build community and respect in the classroom in light of the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations and the Ontario Catholic Secondary Curriculum Policy Document for Religious Education.

Catholic Curriculum Maps Foundational Support for Catholic Teachers
Audience:  
Grade 9-12
Descriptor:  
Halton Catholic District School Board generously has shared the work done in the development of the Catholic Curriculum Core Maps Grade 9-12. This is a continuation of the Core Maps developed with the CCC for the elementary panel.

Mandated to teach the provincial curriculum, Catholic teachers use the CCC Curriculum Maps to help them make the Catholic content visible.

A Catholic Theme and Essential Questions for each grade help to provide the Catholic lens by which all other subject areas can be viewed in light of the Catholic social teachings. The Maps are a rich planning tool for Catholic teachers and a guide for student reflection and response.

Again, thank you Halton CDSB for sharing this resource which is an integral part of their board's Focus on Faith framework.

Grade 7-12
Descriptor:  
The Ethical and Responsible Use of Information and Communication Technology – A Guideline for all Stakeholders in Catholic Education will provide intermediate and secondary teachers with lessons to deal with this very current and critical topic. The Grade 7-12 resource provides a uniquely Catholic, faith-based perspective which will help teachers as they assist their students in making sense of the digital technologies. Technology is a powerful tool and youth need the guidance and modeling of knowledgeable adults so they can critically examine and assess the value, impact and potentially constructive educational benefits of such technology. The introduction, scenarios, lesson framework and overviews provide teachers with those foundational skills which are viewed through the Catholic social teachings.
