An Interfaith Framework for Teaching World Religions
Tuesday, October 9, 2012 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)
The United States is the most religiously diverse country in the world. How can we help students to appreciate the depth and complexity of this rich religious landscape? The Interfaith Center of New York and an experienced Episcopal school chaplain and teacher of religion will present a framework for the teaching of world religions that incorporates "lived religions" as a way to better understand the religious lives and world views of our neighbors of various faiths. Applicable to grades 6-12.
All you will need to participate is a telephone and a computer with a high-speed Internet connection; no downloads are required!
The Rev. Stephen D. K. Arbogast, Senior Chaplain, National Cathedral School, Washington, DC
Henry Goldschmidt, Ph.D., Director of Education Programs, Interfaith Center of New York
