Creator of the popular website The Religion Teacher, Jared Dees shares practical, easy-to-use teaching strategies and exercises for spiritual growth. These components are designed to improve the effectiveness of any busy religious educator, whether volunteer or professional, grade school or high school. Volunteer catechists and professional religion teachers are responsible for two unique and challenging tasks: sharing (and assessing) information and the spiritual formation of their students. 31 Days to Becoming a Better Religious Educator is a succinct, practical, and rich resource to help busy catechists and religion teachers with both tasks. Equally as important, each lesson encourages religion educators to take time for personal spiritual growth, especially through daily prayer. Deess book is designed for use either over consecutive days in one month, or by specific themes that encourage personal improvement in areas of discipleship, service, leadership, and overall teaching. Each lesson gives inspiration for self-improvement and one or more practical suggestions to make the classroom experience more beneficial for all.
