Learning About Religion: What to Do...and What It Looks Like When You Do It. Religion in Elementary Social Studies Teacher Self-Instructional Kit 3 [and] Evaluation Report.
Allen, Rodney F.; Austin, J. Susan
The third teacher self-instruction kit of the Religion in Elementary Social Studies (RESS) project supplements the first two kits described in ED 114 319 and ED 114 325. This third kit provides specific classroom techniques and procedures for how to teach about religion. It offers an overview of the project's objectives for students, presents a brief comment on the learning theory on which the lessons are based, and proceeds with a series of lessons drawn from the student materials. Each lesson contains references from the teacher's guides, including scripts for audiotapes, reductions of activity sheets, and classroom instructions. The exemplary lessons are organized around six major objectives which include student-experience development, cognitive-skill development, attainment of concepts and main ideas, the finding of personal meaning, self-concept and empathy development, and group participation skills. The sample lessons provide the teacher with opportunity to test the materials and teaching strategies in the classroom. Also included is an evaluation report which outlines the major conclusions of religion scholars, teacher educators, and teachers who have used the materials. (Author/DE)
