For those who have been part of the Lasallian educational community for 3-5 years or more, you are already familiar with "the basics" but may be interested in going a little more deeply into the history, pedagogy, and spirituality of St. John Baptist de La Salle and the educational movement that began with him and the first Brothers.
The resources highlighted on this page are some of the ways that you could do that. While these are some resources, how you engage them is entirely up to you. No pressure or grades; just some really good things to sink your teeth into.

St. John Baptist De La Salle: Journey of a Man
This one-man show by Michael Cook, now-retired professor of drama at Saint Mary’s College of California, presents the life of St. John Baptist de La Salle in an engaging, dramatic, and comprehensive fashion. No one has ever done such a depiction of this Patron Saint of Teachers, and Michael does justice to all of the story’s drama, nuances, and sets of characters involved.
The production was written by Michael, his wife Jeffra, and Dan Cauthon, along with a host of other collaborators. It is a project that came about as a project taken on while he was part of the Buttimer Institute of Lasallian Studies.
