This manual for the coordinator of Discovering is designed as a companion piece for the video training resource titled A Video Orientation for the Program Coordinator. The manual is divided into two parts:

Part 1, "The Discovering Video Training Resources," includes thorough outlines of both the 35-minute video orientation for program coordinators and the 74-minute video workshop for teachers. Plenty of space is provided to record personal reflections as well as notes generated by discussion with other parish leaders and teachers.

Part 2, "Helpful Resources for the Program Coordinator," is a kind of toolbox of useful resources on a wide variety of issues and concerns confronting the coordinator of a junior high parish religion program. The contents of part 2 are as follows:

  • Program Management
  • Program Schedule Options
  • Practical Strategies for Recruiting, Training, and Supporting Teachers
  • Discovering Teacher Resources
  • Religious Instruction or Faith Formation?
  • Active Learning
  • Adolescent Development
  • Discovering and Total Youth Ministry

    In addition, the Coordinator's Manual includes a complete list of the goals and objectives of all the Discovering courses, as well as an annotated bibliography of useful resources for program coordinators.
