Item description for Catechist's Companion: Multisensory Methods in Catechesis by Joseph D. White Ph. D....
Overview This 8-page teacher training tool breaks today's top-level education theories down to practical, hands-on ideas for reaching every type of student. Whether they have Linguistic Intelligence like Dr. Martin Luther King, Musical/Rhythmic Intelligence like Beethoven, or one of the other six types of intelligence identified by Harvard University psychologist Dr. Howard Gardner, this provides concrete examples for covering the fundamentals of the Faith.
Publishers Description When we use different methods to teach the Faith, we show that our message is living and rich, and we show that we respect those we are catechizing. This point speaks to the importance of developmentally appropriate catechesis, teaching the Faith with an awareness of what people need and enjoy at various ages and using methods that fit the age group one is catechizing.
Another way in which our variety of methods can show respect for those being catechized is the way in which the activities we use reflect an understanding of the various abilities and learning styles that exist within a group -- even a group of same-age peers.
The Gospel is for everyone, and it needs to be communicated in ways that result in real understanding, reflection, and application. There are important reasons, therefore, to use multisensory methodology -- activities that use various senses and abilities. This short booklet explores the theory behind multisensory catechesis, the history of its use in the Christian tradition, and practical examples of how multisensory methods can be used in catechetical settings today.
