Learning by teaching
The Life Of St. Joseph Calasanz
Saints, Martys, & Venerables
Calasanzian Family

His love for children and the openness of his mind caused Calasanz to practice both personal and active teaching. Four centuries later, they are still not practiced in every school. His words are clear,

"Not all students can be educated in the same way, nor can every student walk at the same pace. It is necessary to know the ability of each one of them."

He used to divide the students up into small groups, and the older and those who knew more used to help those who were younger or slower. They even gave short talks in the churches and in the classrooms,

"Each weel, the teachers would explain some points about Christian doctrine at scheduled times. The students would then conduct public sessions in our churches or in other places the Superior might think appropriate, during Sundays and certain feasts, for the greater glory of God and the good of the neighbors."
