Growing Character in the Elementary Classroom - Deb Austin Brown

Teaching is a calling. In fact, I believe it is the highest calling. I believe it is the job of teachers to call their students to personal — as well as academic — excellence. Students will never know how high their potential in life is unless we call them to it. Here are fourteen of my favorite practices for helping students achieve their character potential.  Popular  Read more...

What’s Your Score On The S.A.T. (Salvation Aptitude Test)? - Noel J. Augustyn

I modestly offer the following as a draft of the sort of exam that I think an eighth-grade Catholic student should have to pass before graduating from Catholic grammar school. I don’t think that knowledge equals faith (or hope or charity). But I know that the religious literacy I had accumulated, fairly painlessly, by age 13 has enriched my faith during subsequent years and has given me a secure base of knowledge on which to build. The following exam tries to teach as well as to test, and has a number of “think” or “short essay” questions.  Popular  Read more...

'Bodies' exhibit is no masterpiece - Colleen Carroll Campbell

A Catholic Renaissance at Princeton - George Weigel

A Critical Review of the GLSEN Same-Sex Marriage Curriculum - Warren Throckmorton, PhD; Gary Welton, PhD; & Mike Ingram

In 2003, the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Educators Network (GLSEN) released a curriculum designed to present same-sex marriage as a topic area in high schools. For reasons we will delineate, we found the GLSEN curriculum biased, coercive, inaccurate and misleading on many points and impractical in implementation. For these reasons, we respectfully suggest that school districts not use these materials for classroom instruction. We conclude with recommendations that may help schools handle this controversial subject in a sensitive and educationally sound manner.  Read more...
