Many Paths to God: Mapping a World Religions Curriculum

Monday, May 14, 2018 (5pm - 6pm US/Eastern)


This webinar will present three key ideas for the teaching of world religions across grades 5-12, along with lots of examples, tips, and tricks of the trade.

1. Episcopal and Diverse: As Episcopal Schools, we have not only the responsibility to offer the best of our Christian heritage and theology, but also to teach about the many other traditions in Godís world.

2. Making the Strange Familiar and the Familiar Strange: Discover how taking the perspective of a Muslim or Buddhist can illuminate the study of Jesus, and how the Holy Spirit and the Dao are alike and unique.

3. Starting with a Blank Page: Learn about crafting lessons, units, assessments, and student activities.
