Founded on a historical bedrock of faith and academic integration, the STREAM White Paper outlines a framework for STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Math) integrated curricular initiatives in Catholic education. The why, what and how of such an initiative illuminates that all knowledge conferred, discovered, and evaluated in Catholic schools can and must be done so by the light of faith.
The Religious Freedom Center of the Freedom Forum Institute will host Summer Religious Studies Institute at the Newseum in Washington, D.C. The program, to be held July 23 – 25, 2019, will convene K-12 independent school educators in the nation’s capital to explore issues of religious freedom and diversity in the classroom. Educators will learn about religious studies as an academic discipline, and have the opportunity to develop working relationships with leading religious studies subject matter experts and curricular resource providers.
The white paper provides a solid rationale for our Catholic schools in serving and supporting linguistically and culturally diverse students, a discussion around the potential challenges in executing this mission and a roadmap for future implementation and success.
