The Interplay Of "The Framework" And Attempts At Formation Of Conscience In High School Theology Classes
Catholic high schools have a reputation for providing quality education, and preparing students to go to college. However, are Catholic high schools doing an effective job in teaching Catholic theology? This research attempts to answer that question by providing the history of the Framework, which is the document that Catholic high schools currently use to create theology curricula. The study also explores the benefits and disadvantages of the Framework, as well as provides examples of effective teaching methods. In conclusion, this research finds that the Framework is ineffective in classrooms because it does not engage students with their faith, and may cause a generation of Catholics to be lost. As a solution to the ineffectiveness of the Framework, this study proposes a three-part prologue to improve the Framework.
