Increased classroom sizes and student diversity are making it more challenging than ever to maintain an orderly and engaged learning environment. This, coupled with the fact that catechists have such a short time-period to educate our young people in the Faith, can make their job quite challenging.
Catechists Companion: How to Manage Behavior was written with all this in mind. With proven practices and relevant Scripture, child psychologist Dr. Joseph D. White, Ph.D., shows catechists how to bring it all together.
Within the eight pages, catechists will learn indispensable strategies for setting the tone, positively channeling kids energy, and managing individual needs. It includes helpful examples for addressing issues with parents, motivational prayers, and self-assessment questions for continued catechist growth.
