ASSIGNMENTS

STUDENTS: Prior to each virtual session, complete the following: 

  • Sign in to https://ascensionpress.thinkific.com/users/sign_in.
  • Follow the prompts for each Chapter. The system will indicate that the student has completed each section.
  • For each assigned chapter, complete ONE item from the "Work It Out" section in the student workbook. 

PARENT-CHILD: Complete the following activities/discussions:

  • Prior to each ZOOM session, complete ONE discussion or activity from the "Questions for Your Middle Schooler" or "Family Applications" section of the Parent's Guide.
  • Prior to the ZOOM session in which we discuss Chapter 5 (SUMMER SESSION: July 1st; SPRING SESSION: March 13): 
    • Review chapter 5 in the Parent Guide and the Student Book to help you initiate an appropriate discussion with your child about marital love and the sexual union of husband and wife. It is important that young people understand the beauty and role of sexuality and the sexual union within marriage prior to our classroom discussion. Catechists will NOT address biology and physiology. Our classroom discussion will focus on the virtue of chastity, the difference between love and lust (using a person for your own gratification), and evaluating culture with the standard of chastity. Although awkward, this discussion is critical. Your child will hear many messages about sexual union. This conversation opens the door for your child to discuss conflicting messages he/she will encounter.

 NOTE: Some options in the Parent's Guide contain private discussions between the parent and child. Parents/Students choosing these options should write a brief description of the experience without revealing private information.

 Please make sure the following are marked clearly on each assignment:
 1) Child's Name  2) Chapter Number  3) "Work It Out" or "Family Application"

Resources:   A Guide to Sensitive Topics   Case Studies

Assignments must be submitted to the Parish Office by Wednesday, April 13th.
