The Confirmation Program 2020-2021

Materials

 

My Catholic Faith Delivered is an on-line, self-directed Confirmation study program.  All lessons and assessments are to be done in the on-line "textbook."  There are no printed textbooks.

Schedule

 

Students are expected to complete one lesson per week, whatever day/time of the week that is good for the family.  The lesson schedule is available on this web site's calendar:  Click the following link to go to the Calendar:  2020-2021 Calendar  Note that all coursework must be completed by June.

Getting Started

 

Parents/Guardians of registered students receive a "Login Email" from My Catholic Faith Delivered with the student's login and password.  If you have not received this email, please contact Mrs. Ann Braun abraun@st-edwards.org.  She will re-send the Login Email.

Catechists

 

Each student is assigned to a Catechist who will keep track of lessons completed, assessments and unit tests.  The Catechist will send an email to introduce him/herself.

Parent's Role

 

The program provides for parents a one-page Family Guide for each weekly lesson that will give parents the tools needed to work with their child:  Lesson Focus, Summary and Review, Suggestions for Discussion, How to apply the lesson to life, and a begining and ending prayer.

 

Set aside a particular time and day for your child to work.  Please review your child's work.  Each lesson varies in length.  Students should spend an appropriate amount of time on each lesson.  Catechists will track the amount of time spent on a lesson, test scores, and the completion of a lesson.

A Note About Assessments and Unit Tests

 

Your child needs to complete the Pre-Assessment, Post-Assessment and Unit Tests.  To make sure the scores are recorded and the lesson credited as "completed, your child needs to click the "Submit Answers" button and then click "Yes" when asked, "Answers will be submitted.  Do you wish to continue?"

 

If your child has been scoring poorly on Assessments, he/she should print the Assessment before starting the lesson.  Then, as he/she reads, write down the answers and then take the Assessment.  The Catechism Practice section will help your child find the correct answers.  A passing grade of at least 70 is expected on the Post-Assessment.  A good score will affirm your child and his/her work.
