See, Judge, Act: Catholic Social Teaching and Service Learning
Although more and more classrooms are integrating service-learning components into their curriculum, teachers and students often lack the unique pedagogical resources or frameworks for community-based learning that these courses demand.
Erin Brigham’s See, Judge, Act: Catholic Social Teaching and Service Learning, Revised Edition updates a proven text that delivers the tools needed for reflective community engagement. Designed for readers with little to no theology background, See, Judge, Act introduces the seven principles of Catholic social teaching and guides students and teachers alike to apply them to contemporary social issues. Using the see-judge-act method of analysis—seeing social situations, judging them in light of CST principles, and acting to promote justice and improve the situations of those served—this resource deftly balances thoughtful reflection with concrete application. With service-learning vignettes, reflection questions that bookend each chapter, rich recommended resources, and sidebars that introduce relevant people, events, and concepts, See, Judge, Act invites and empowers students to participate in works of justice and social change.
