Drawn into Friendship: An Interactive Art Retreat - Educate Magis

My brother Jesuits and I are delighted to invite you to an interactive art retreat based on the seven-day creation story found in Genesis. The retreat guides participants through a series of scripture passages, drawing exercises, and meditations. The retreat is approximately an hour long. Retreatants can view it in one sitting or go along at their own pace by breaking it up according to each respective “day of creation”. Be sure to download the “Creation Sketchbook”, which will help facilitate personal and communal reflection. The retreat and “Creation Sketchbook” are offered in both English and Spanish. Now grab some paper, colored and charcoaled pencils, or whatever you have, to pray with and reflect together on the sacred story of how we came to be, who we are, and whose we are!

Two years ago, at the age of 7, my daughter developed an interest in the biographies of famous people.

White Catholics have 'to talk about race and to admit their racism.'

We started with a children’s book about Amelia Earhart, followed by Walt Disney and Anne Frank. Next up was Rosa Parks. The book opened with Parks as a girl growing up in rural Alabama, watching white kids ride buses to white schools while she and her black friends walked to black schools. The moral of the story was clear: Racism is bad. When we finished the book, my daughter said to me, “I go to a segregated school.” My children attend a Catholic elementary school in Baton Rouge, La. What can I say? We’re also white. In describing her school as segregated, my daughter was simply calling it as she saw it.

Forensic Science. Reference Cards I have created reference cards for many of the units/activities listed below, which are designed to replace the student worksheets and some lab pages for those units. The cards are printed on card stock (back-to-back) and laminated for student use. Students use overhead markers to add notes to the pages as we discuss each lesson and keep them to review for the unit quizzes. (You could also have students record their answers in a lab notebook rather than write on the pages.)

At the end of the unit, they clean them off with a wet cloth and turn them in so they are ready for the next class! Less paper wasted and less time copying - a double bonus! Daily CSI Challenges I start each class period with a warm-up activity targeting forensic science concepts and other skills (observation, problem-solving, etc.) Unit 2: Physical Evidence Introductory Presentation: Power of Evidence: Physical Evidence (PPT) Student Worksheet: Physical Evidence Student Notes (PDF) Zumba Dance Class - Foundation Degree Dance - Hull College.
