3 Correlation of Alive in Christ Parish Edition This correlation of Alive in Christ Parish Edition Grades 1 6 provides page references for the Student Book. Other program components offer additional opportunities for instruction and development of the guidelines. The Catechist Editions include background content on Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, as well as formation in developmental appropriateness. Lectionary connections for a three-year-cycle, assessments, and optional activities are also provided. Catholic Social Teaching and lessons for the feasts and liturgical year can be correlated with core chapters or stand alone. The Alive in Christ website () includes extensive online resources and interactive connections between the Student Book and the website, along with music, assessments, social media interaction, customized lesson planning, program support materials, a multimedia glossary, question of the week, and many other features. Alive in Christ deepens children s experience of faith through song, with two unique components to meet diverse needs and developmental models. In some cases this music is referenced. Our Sunday Visitor has partnered with LicenSing Online* to provide music for children and catechists. This includes the Alive in Christ theme song and age- appropriate music for each grade at varying steps of the catechetical process. Songs of Scripture: Deepening Children s Understanding of the Word of God is an original work of forty songs designed to teach or unfold the meaning of Scripture. Songs from both of these resources may be sampled and downloaded at. Take Note of the Following: A. Because of Alive in Christ s approach to its scope and sequence, which is structurally organized around seven foundational doctrines of the Church, many of the standards are presented at an earlier grade level and expanded in subsequent years, or will be treated at greater depth in a coming year. B. Alive in Christ Parish Edition contains an intentional use of activities to assess learning, aid in understanding, reinforce concepts, and apply learning to the child s life. In some cases the activities are cited. C. The Vocabulary references in Alive in Christ are named Glossary of Catholic Faith Words, and are cited in the sidebar and found in the Glossary of Catholic Faith Words in the Student Book. D. Our Catholic Tradition: Faith Basics is a reference section found in the back of the Student Book. This section is patterned on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and presents content divided into the four sections of We Believe, We Worship, We Live, and We Pray. E. If a standard is not specifically presented in Alive in Christ there may appear a suggestion for the catechist about where it would be most appropriate to add this content in a lesson. F. In each grade level Alive in Christ s Catechist Editions present a developmental overview of a child at this age and discuss the content in relationship to the catechetical readiness of the child. G. Kindergarten correlations for our Kindergarten programs Allelu! and Call to Faith Kindergarten can be found on the OSV website.

Take Out: Family Faith on the Go, a monthly Family magazine, offers practical family touch points, Catholic conversation starters, family faith-builders with prayers, saints and the Sunday readings and positive reinforcement for deepening Catholic identity in the home. The Alive in Christ website () provides additional class and family activities for the young person as well as a faith glossary; faith-sharing questions based on the Sunday cycle of readings; and supplemental instructional resources for the catechist or teacher to help implement word, worship, and service in the classroom. Unique to Alive in Christ Grade 7 & 8 and cited in the correlation are such features as: Go to the Source challenges the adolescent to go directly to Scripture and find out more about the passage. In Summary: Catholics Believe reiterates lesson objectives and key concepts presented in the chapter. Where It Happened explores the places where biblical or Church events took place and where the Saints lived and grew in holiness. Catholic Faith Words define core Catholic teachings and help the students know and articulate the teaching of the Church in precise theological language. Catholics Today introduces young people to customs, practices, and devotions of our Church as experienced and celebrated throughout the world. The Church History Timeline presents key people, places, and events in the Church s growth and development, along with secular events that affected the course of Church history and the life and work of Catholics around the world.
