Works of Literature
Let the journey of self discovery begin
Each unit provides a series of lessons centered around a beautiful work of literature that is read to the class. As the stories come alive for the children, so do the themes that are foundational to Theology of the Body.
Cultivating a child’s natural wonder at creation and deepening their understanding of God as a loving Father is the foundation for glimpsing one’s greatness and our unique role in the world. The task of inspiring children to make a gift of themselves throughout the whole of their lives is taken up — right here in the classroom.
Why literature based?
Saint john Paul II had a tremendous love for culture. During World War II he met with friends to keep Polish culture and the Catholic faith alive by reciting plays, poems, and literature. On hiking trips with the youth, he would sing and read stories around the campfire.
Knowing that culture builds relationships, each unit of the curriculum is centered around a work of literature. Stories are powerful. We remember them — we relate to them — we revel in hearing them again and again. Stories have the ability to fire the imagination and proclaim truth.
Through discussion, activities and real life application, each unit offers a journey through the truths of Theology of the Body. Choose a path that brings learning to life in your classroom.
