Theology of the Body for Middle School

In ROOTED: Theology of the Body for Middle School Series, Pope St. John Paul II’s teachings are woven through both the content and the way the course is taught.  Each grade’s curriculum includes a few different themes to work through and revisit as needed. The ROOTED units all feature activities, ideas for real-life application, and questions to spark discussion — all allowing you to choose your classroom’s unique path through the Theology of the Body journey. 

Progressively Over Grades 6-8:

  • Promote a sense of gratitude
  • Develop a sense of community
  • Observe and listen (before output and speaking)
  • Foster an awareness of these truths:
  • It is good that you exist
  • You are not alone
  • You are called to great things
  • Your authentic identity comes from God
  • Start thinking from cause to effect; whole to parts; principle to concrete
  • Summarize, analyze and learn how to make a judgement
  • Compare/contrast: name and be able to define and distinguish
  • Develop habits of courteous dialogue, real questioning and patient listening
  • Grow a capacity for stillness and silent reflection
  • Think about questions of anthropology and morality, remembering heaven is our final end
