LEARNING FOR CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS EDUCATION
Credit points: 15
In this subject students gain an understanding of the historical development of the Christian Church and tradition through examining Catholic tradition in its communal, sacramental and liturgical dimensions and implications for Catholic schooling. Students will demonstrate understanding of the technical language of religious education and an understanding of the sources and structure of the core content of Religious Education: Revelation as expressed through Scripture and Tradition, and experienced through creation and human experience. Students develop an understanding of Catholic beliefs organized around the eight strands of the Religious Education curriculum: God, Jesus Christ, Church, Sacraments, Scripture, Christian Prayer, Christian Life, and Religion and Society.
