Item description for To Walk Humbly: Stories and Activities for Teaching Compassion and Justice for Ages 10-13 by Anne E. Neuberger...
Overview This is an invaluable resource for catechetical leaders, catechists, parents, Catholic school teachers, and youth ministers. Stories open doors--even into complex social dilemmas--even for middle schoolers! Here Anne Neuberger offers fifty-five wonderful stories from around the world to help young Catholics "connect" with the social, environmental, and economic problems of children around the globe. It encourages them to accept and think of these children as family, as sisters and brothers. Story topics include school life, child labor, cultural and religious celebrations, hunger, racism, poverty, sharing, generosity, and lifestyles. This is also a primer on Catholic Social Teaching and how its principles can be lived out in daily life in simple and doable ways. And, it includes detailed plans for children to organize and host "education fairs" for their school peers and adult parishioners, thus empowering them to be spokespersons and activists for social justice issues. This collection is recommended for children in grades five through eight for faith formation sessions, confirmation preparation, religion class, retreats, and intergenerational gatherings. It is a companion to Teaching Compassion and Justice through Stories and Activities, and uses a hands-on approach for engaging middle school children in learning the principles of social justice.
