What is Faith/Life Inquiry – What is Faith/Life Inquiry – (very very quick snapshot) Recontextualisation = What is this? Recontextualisation is a regular thing and happens for us all the time, for example, the renovating of a lounge room…
In a Catholic PS this means… Inquiring into old and new stories Engaging in a collaborative and pluralistic society Deep encounter with Catholic Tradition and contemporary life Inquiring into text and its context
Our Goal @ Good Sam Our Goal @ Good Sam (down the track) Ultimately our goal for Faith/ Life Inquiry is to connect the two ideas (faith/life) so that they become so fused that it is impossible to comprehend one aspect without the other. Research says that as a result of this Hermeneutical Communicative Dialogue Model learners become more actively informed Christian citizens and ultimately ‘stronger’ in their faith.
However, at the moment… A couple of things to note: In the below the line planning we insert both the RE and Inquiry and label appropriately, you might even have to mark them both RE/Inquiry because its hard to nominate which one specifically. As a result it is imperative that you have your Learning Intention planned prior to the learning activity.
Below the Line A few more things to consider before we have some planning time:
Catholic Tradition Lent Easter Sacraments - Reconciliation Jesus life before death etc These are not negotiable and must be a focus We are still using the RE Framework – we are just being smarter about how we use it
Thinking Processes AusVELS – How are we engaging our students in real life complex problems that promote thinking skills?

Is it worth learning?
Planning Time… We will come back later to share. Please be ready to share
