Volunteer catechists come to a new year of faith formation with enthusiasm, excitement, and a love for God, the Catholic faith, and children. But often they also come with apprehension because they have had little to no training in classroom management—things like what to do when the children won’t stop talking or when they interrupt the flow of the lesson in other ways.
No catechist should panic, because this month we’re offering 10 Tips for Maintaining Discipline.
The tips complement formal, in-person catechist development opportunities and can be used to spark discussion among a group of catechists, with two convenient formats—a printable tip sheet (PDF) and an audio file.
Fill out the below form to receive the free PDF and audio file with field-tested suggestions for how to remove any obstacles from an effective learning experience. Whether you work with little ones or adolescents, these hints will make the classroom environment more enjoyable for everyone in the room.
