Global Sisters Report - GSR in the Classroom
From the GSR in the Classroom website: GSR in the Classroom helps students learn about the varied missions and ministries of Catholic women religious — and religious life — around the world. Each lesson explores Global Sisters Report articles and columns more deeply by posing questions that first open readers’ minds to new learning, then help them understand what they’ve read. Other features deepen the message with pertinent passages from Scripture and Catholic social teaching. … Each lesson sends learners forth in prayer.
Teacher guides provide important background about the issues that each lesson explores, as well as engaging activities to focus the group and prayers that classes can lift up together.
… Most activities are easily adapted for group or individual use. Likewise, while our current target audience is high school learners, most elements are flexible enough for use by middle-school students as well.
