Integrate Faith and Virtues Into Your Subject
| You have learned the eight (8) approaches to values education in Step
2 and you are now ready to apply these different approaches in your teaching.
In this step you will plan how and when you will use these approaches and
document your plans in the course outline.
The course outline is the teacher’s plan for the school year. It outlines the subjects and chapters of the textbook that will be studied each week. It is often dated so the teacher will be reminded of what he/she plans to teach during each week of the school year. It helps the teacher pace the class so that all the topics are covered with the proper time allotment. A sample course outline is included in this section. It includes some examples of how to record your plans for teaching faith and virtues throughout the school year.
Try to include each of the 8 approaches somewhere in your course outline to help balance your integration. Work to match the approach and depth of presentation with the developmental level of the student.
