Welcome to 7th Grade Religion!
May 28 – 31
On Tuesday, students will begin working on their Theophilus Final, an in-class/take-home summative assessment displayed in a Nellie Edge booklet. Students will have a detailed rubric.They will also be able to work on this during the normal Wednesday School Mass times.
For this week, they are to focus on the front and back covers, the Liturgical Year page, and the Mass and Mary pages. I encourage students to do any printing at home, and I’m also working on getting us “printing privileges” during our Wednesday religion class periods.
May 20 – 23
On Monday students will work with their Holy Spirit partner on their Laudato Si Poster. They need to either bring to class or design during class an image of creation, a quote from Pope Francis’ encyclical, a fact from the recent United Nations report on climate change, and their own personal Care For Creation Covenant. Posters will be due before class begins on Wednesday.
Tuesday is their in-class retreat day, led by Mrs. Defeo and Mr. Ritscher.
Wednesday, Fr. Oakland is coming to visit us, and we will introduce the Theophilus Final, a summative project/test of our learning in religion class this year.
