Journal of Catholic Ed newsletter

Here is the link to the Nov 5th newsletter.

This week I’m publishing articles from the Journal of Catholic Education’s fall issue.  It’s often difficult to find applicable research.  My guess is that most of us don’t know where to look.  So I figured this was a good place to start.  Please recognize that for each of these links, you’ll have to push the “download” button to read the article.  My top 5:

  1. The opening address “Welcoming the Stranger” is especially apt for these difficult times. Pope Francis talks about migrants (not immigrants or emigrants) and our common history of migration.   This is a great short opener and addresses two common themes in Catholic education today—how to become more accessible to students with disabilities AND Hispanic students.
  2. The study entitled “Who Do You Say You Are” is a great study of relationships within a Catholic school. It’s inspired me to write something for next week’s blog.
  3. De Marillac Academy” is a great study of the teaching of grit and soft skills at an inner-city Catholic school.
  4. Providing Access for Students with Moderate Disabilities” is a great study of a successful professional development program at a typical Catholic school. How do we get our teachers ready to serve in a more inclusive environment?
  5. A Content Analysis of Catholic School Written Discipline Policies” points out that Catholic school disciplinary policies are really not different from public school policies. The need to infuse them with Catholic identity is paramount.
