Answering the WHY?- Helping Students Understand Church Teaching on Respect for Human Life

There is an abundance of information on WHAT the Church teaches about difficult issues such as abortion and euthanasia, but it can be a struggle to explain WHY. The fear of being tongue-tied can cause us to avoid these subjects altogether. Attendees will learn four levels of happiness, ten key principles, and six fundamental definitions that will bring reason and respect to any discussion of moral issues. Participants will assess unique challenges in today's classroom, engage in open dialogue, and leave with a free set of memory-aid flipcards to bring learned concepts into the classroom.
