Engage middle and high school students more deeply and interactively with
CATHOLICISM School Enrichment
Bring students around the world and deep into the Faith with Bishop Barron, a trusted source of authentic Church teaching whom Cardinal Francis George has called “one of the Church's best messengers."
Word on Fire has partnered with the Archdiocese of New York to create 46 video vignettes and companion lesson plans, drawing from the award-winning CATHOLICISM series and the vast expertise of twelve New York teachers. These materials can be used creatively by any teacher to enhance core religion curriculum in middle or high school, and bring the beauty, truth, and goodness of the Faith more vividly into the classroom.
During the pilot in the New York schools, these materials improved class participation and supported teachers with new and exciting content. Designed as a virtual tool-kit, teachers can easily use these materials and share them with students directly in the classroom or via a link for one-to-one technology or at-home use. High School materials follow the USCCB framework and Middle School materials fit virtually any diocesan curriculum.
CATHOLICISM School Enrichment is available as an digital subscription. The videos stream from the Internet and the written materials are provided in PDF format for downloading.
For questions, please contact Peggy Pandaleon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teachers find the program both engaging and easy to use.
Here's what some had to say:
“Students need witnesses more than anything. Through CATHOLICISM, Bishop Barron witnesses to the faith and the beauty of the faith and the attractiveness of the faith. The way the series is presented responds to students' deepest desires for beauty and truth, and ultimately for Christ."
- Paige Sanchez, Associate Superintendent for Mission Effectiveness, Archdiocese of New York
“It is a very easy way to implement something new into the curriculum
for teachers who are stretched for time and resources."
- Kaija DeWitt, Director of Campus Ministry, Xavier High School, NY
"Bishop Barron is not a phony and the children can spot a phony a mile
away. They love him and they love listening to his stories."
- Doreen Lopez, 8th Grade Teacher, St. Margaret Mary School
