Religious Dimensions of World Cultures as Related to the Holt Databank System.
This resource unit, part of a series of guides by the Public Religion Studies Center at Wright State University, correlates with the Holt Databank System "Inquiring About Cultures." The unit covers many facets of many cultures ranging from primitive tribes to complex, urban societies and makes evident the religious dimensions of culture in both religious and non-religious traditions. It attempts to add to the understanding of the culture as studied in the Holt System by introducing the religious ideas and traditions of each and thus provide an opportunity for the study of divergent religions in a broad curriculum. The units are aimed to reach nine-year-old children in heterogeneous classrooms. The document is divided into three units of instruction: Introduction to Cultures; The Kung Bushman; and, India and Gopalpur. Each unit contains an introduction; content generalizations; subject matter outline; vocabulary, goals, and objectives; possible activities; evaluation suggestions; and a resource list of books, filmstrips, slides, movies, and recordings.
