About the DVD & Lesson Plans:
Hope and Healing in the Holy Land is a 27 - minute DVD that focuses on the work of the Franciscans in the Holy Land, which is supported by the Good Friday Collection. For 800 years the Holy See has entrusted to the Franciscans the care of the Holy Places for the benefit of the Christians who live there and all who come as pilgrims from around the world. Through social & charitable activities, educational & scientific activities and pastoral activities, the Franciscans also ensure the care of the Christians living in the Holy Land, thus preserving Christianity in this sacred place.
The video gives an overview of the complex religious situation in the Holy Land and focuses on the small and fragile Christian population living there. Perfect for Bible study, religious education formation or parish events, as well as classrooms.
Produced by the award-winning Franciscan Media Center, the video features Christians in the Holy Land who speak about their daily challenges and dreams. Viewers go along on a video pilgrimage to Bethlehem, Galilee, Gethsemane, and the Holy Sepulcher. They also visit projects made possible by the Good Friday Collection like the Catholic school in Jericho where Muslim and Christian students and teachers work together.
Included with this DVD are lesson plans. The lesson plans segment the DVD into four chapters, which is ideal for any teacher or catechist to use in one class session or as a part of a series.
The curriculum is targeted to grades K - 6 and includes an outline for teachers and visual aids, such as photos, activities and a cross word puzzle. The curriculum accompanies the four chapters of the Hope and Healing in the Holy Land video so that students can see and hear from people in the Holy Land while they are learning about it.
The video and lesson plans can be used in many different classes, including religion, social studies, geography, history and current events, among others. They are best utilized during Holy Week or during Lent.
The video allows students to see and hear from the people in the Holy Land and helps them understand the importance of the Good Friday collection.
