Catechists In Action #3 – Dan Talks About Advent/Christmas Preparations and the Sacrament of Reconciliation

In this segment of Catechists in Action, we watch as 7th grade catechist Dan Ward talks with his students about preparing for Christmas and the coming of Christ and about preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation the following week. Watch for the following as Dan:

  • multi-tasks: teaching while also distributing materials
  • pauses and shushes students when they get innattentive
  • gives the students a writing activity to do but creates a sense of urgency by giving them only 3 minutes
  • continues the sense of urgency by counting down the time
  • talks with great enthusiasm in his voice and walks around constantly as he teaches, keeping a sense of energy throughout
  • engages the students in conversation about preparations for Christmas
  • shifts to talk about preparing for the coming of Jesus
  • makes constant eye contact with his students
  • introduces the “super-awesome opportunity” to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation next week to prepare for the coming of Christ
