Developed in the 1930s by the Marquette Institute of Catechetical Research, the Religion in Life Curriculum is more than just a Teacher's Manual for use with its accompanying textbook series, The Highway to Heaven. It lays out an entire Religion Curriculum that includes music, art, reading and classroom activities.
This First Grade Teachers Plan Book and Manual includes presentation material for the lessons contained in the First Grade text, The Book of the Holy Child, along with recommended reading and activities for student and teacher. Though many of these readings were taken from contemporary school readers now long out of print, these have been painstakingly collected and will be reprinted in a new anthology to accompany the series: The Magnificat Readers. A full listing of all resources for this curriculum can be found here.
The lesson material for the Sacraments of First Confession and First Communion is contained in this First Grade Manual (not Second Grade!).
This reprinted edition is an exact reproduction of the original manual, with the addition of material from the original 1931 curriculum overview volume, entitled A Curriculum in Religion, as well as a newly compiled appendix, listing all of the recommended supplementary texts.
