Unit rationale, description and aim

As Catholic schools respond to emerging socio-religious issues and increasing diversity, it remains an imperative for them to clearly articulate their Catholic identity. An understanding of Church tradition is important for religious educators who wish to better understand Catholicism itself and Catholicism as an expression of Christianity. This unit deals with understanding the tradition of the Church and teaching that tradition in school religious education. Students develop a body of knowledge related to key periods of Church history with particular emphasis on the Church since the Second Vatican Council. Students demonstrate cognitive, technical and creative skills to generate and evaluate complex ideas and concepts about embedding Church tradition in religious education in particular and Catholic school settings generally.
