8th Grade Religion

8th Grade Religion is off to a great start.  We started the year off with a unit on Human Dignity.  We explored the Catholic Teachings regarding Human Dignity and Social Justice.  We discussed what it means to be created in the Image of God, and how we should treat people based on this inherent truth.  The students watched a Marriott commercial based on what the world would be like if we all treated one another with respect and dignity.  They are now creating their own projects answering the question;”What would the world look like if we all treated people like they were the Image of God?”  The projects are very creative- we have alternative historical timelines, video montages, skits, stories, musical montages, and posters.  I can’t wait to see the finished projects later this week.
