Leader Guides support experienced and new catechists through every step of the lesson with consistent features and easy-to-use resources. Background material introduces lesson content through adult reflection and prayer, and provides information on how young adolescents understand and relate to faith concepts in the lesson. Key concept and learner objectives are fully explained and conveniently located at the beginning of each lesson. A Lesson at a Glance offers a quick overview of what happens in Invite, Discover, and Live steps. Getting Ready and Materials give leaders what they need to prepare effectively for a successful lesson, including when they will model faith sharing. An easy-to-follow lesson plan guides the leader page-by-page through the lesson. Detailed instructions support the leader in facilitating group activities, youth reflection and the practice of faith sharing. An Interactive Teaching Strategy provides a dynamic way to teach part of the Discover step. A variety of methods--movement, video selections, role playing, creative art--respects the way adolescents learn today.
