How can you as a student incorporate Catholicism into your English class?
1. Use of religious analysis as one of the critical approaches to the literature you read and write about.
2. Approach your writings from a Catholic world view perspective.
3. In the discussion and study of literature, ask, "What if [this character] had known Christ?" or "What's lacking in the character's life?" or "What perspective does this poem give us about death? Is it a Catholic one?" In other words, think in terms of spirituality.
4. Discuss literature and religious issues in their writings
5. Connect presentation material to faith.
6. Refer to biblical examples whenever the opportunity presents itself.
7. Discuss Catholic perspectives of the arts: historical influences (Catholic artists, philosophers, musicians, doctrines, etc.)
8. Compare/contrast secular, humanistic trends with a Catholic perspective (relationship of the Catholic to secular society, is it interaction or integration of faith and learning?)
9. Think about philosophical, psychological, and spiritual ideas and forces which have shaped and expanded or diminished our society.
10. Use the Catholic Graduate Expectations as the beacon of everything you do- personally and academically.
