Below are documents and presentations that show how the NCEA, Center for Catholic School Effectiveness at Loyola University Chicago and other groups have been working for years to change Catholic schools to mirror the secular and progressive education philosophies we saw with OBE and now with Common Core. In these presentations, you will see the behavioral psychology methods they use for their educational vision.
There are a few other documents in here that are important to be aware of and also the written Standards from the largest Accreditation agency, AdvancEd, and also Middle States (for PA) so you can see how they are incorporating these methods and standards into requirements for school accreditation.
Each actual document is uploaded here (the title in red), and then we also put the actual link where we found that document.
**ORIGINAL Unit Exemplars as posted on ORIGINAL CATHOLIC SCHOOL STANDARDS WEBSITE and for the Common Core Catholic Identity Initiative - it is important to note, that these were taken down from the site and the website was changed after diligent parents researched and found controversial topics, methods and materials. The new exemplars can be found here - the books for 1st grade referencing same sex marriage have been removed from the Grade 1exemplars and the 7th grade Friendship exemplar has been removed totally. However, the majority of the content remains the same. This includes the recommendation of books such as "Go Ask Alice", "Daddy was a Number Runner", and "I Am the Cheese" to discuss the USCCB's 7 themes of Catholic Social Teaching (Human Dignity) in the Unit Design Guidelines.
