The Liturgical Classroom and Virtue Formation, by Jenny Rallens

By Chris Perrin, 04/16/2018

In this presentation, Jenny Rallens of the Ambrose School (Boise, ID), describes the ways in which educators can employ traditions, practices and routines (rooted in church liturgical practices) in order to enliven and deepen education and cultivate virtue in students. Those educators who have read James K. A. Smith's Desiring the Kingdom and Teaching and Christian Practices will find this presentation "required training" as Jenny has masterfully employed the insights of those books in her own classrooms. The five minute video clip of her 5th graders discussing the Fellowship of the Ring (as if they were channeling mature high school students) is alone worth the investment of time watching this presentation. Apparently students can still learn to truly love truth, goodness and beauty. Watch this presentation! --Christopher Perrin (vice-chair, SCL)
