Character Education and Faith Formation

Friday, Nov. 12, 2010

"Facilitating Ethical Literacy" and "Teaching Virtues Through Literature" are two workshops to be offered by Steve Johnson, Center director of character education, at the Nov. 19-20 Faith Formation Conference in Santa Clara.

The conference will bring  more than 2,000 attendees from all over Northern California to the Santa Clara Convention Center. 

Johnson will address the question, "Where do character education, moral formation, and catechesis come together for Catholic educators and parents?"  He will show how literature can be used to teach the virtues.
