World Religions for the Classroom.
Dixon, Dorothy Arnett
This teaching and resource guide contains ideas appropriate for teaching junior and senior high school students about the following religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism, Shintoism, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Individual sections discuss general approaches to teaching the religious philosophies and rituals, and exemplary programs are cited. Each of these sections, supplemented by resource pages outlining steps in religious ceremonies, explains how to construct religious objects such as a Jewish succah or a Buddhist prayer wheel, gives recipes for traditional holiday meals, and translates songs and prayers. In addition to bibliographies at the end of each section, a general bibliography lists books on world religions, religion and public education, audiovisual materials, and curricula on world religions for public schools.
