Engaging Faith: Practical lesson ideas and activities for Catholic Educators

Catholic Schools Week Assignment for High School Students

The annual Catholic Schools Week is scheduled for January 28 to February 3. How will you mark the occasion with your students?

One idea would be for the students to write a short essay entitled “6 Benefits of a Catholic High School Education.” The six benefits can be written in a list form with a one paragraph explanation of each.

After you have collected the essays, compile a list of the top three benefits mentioned by all the students. Collate some of their reasoning into a larger promotion on a poster and an online platform with quotations included from as many students as possible and mentions by name of all the students in your class.

You might note a similar essay composed by a recent graduate of a Catholic high school.
