Theology for Teachers is an initiative of the Breen Chair for Catholic Theology at John Carroll University. The idea for this short workshop emerged out of conversations with area high school religion teachers. I was looking for ways to support educational ministries in the diocese. They were looking for ways to strengthen their teaching. Our idea was to provide some space for (1) a kind of "theological refresher," (2) that would emphasize practical pedagogy, (3) through structured discussion in which teachers could share with one another what works and what doesn't work in the classroom. Over 70 teachers met for a day-long workshop on the campus of John Carroll in October 2016, in what we hope will be the first of many such gatherings.

If you have any suggestions or questions, I'd love to hear from you.

I hope you can join us in the conversation!
