Catholic Social Teaching Across the Disciplines
An interactive workshop presented by Creative Change Educational Solutions in partnership with Cliff Jackson, a theology expert in the Archdiocese of Detroit and a teacher at Gabriel Richard High School in Riverview, MI.
For Catholic educators, the principles of sustainability and social justice are found in Catholic Social Teachings. This workshop will show teachers and administrators how to integrate CST into any discipline in ways that strengthen, not dilute, critical thinking and real-world applications of learning. Tools, examples, and hands-on activities will support attendees to plan a curriculum makeover using a CST lens.

Sustainability and Social Justice
A Talk at the Sierra Club Huron Valley Group
