The Religious Quest.
Wagstaff, Jeri Lou
This literature-research unit centered on a study of the religious quest provides a vehicle for developing several skills in addition to involving students in an examination of the nature of religious experience and the roles religion can play in the lives of people. The student will learn how to write extended definitions, compare and contrast compositions, and do a research paper. This nine- to twelve-week high school English unit is part of a series developed by the Public Education Religion Studies Center at Wright State University. It is intended to serve five purposes: (1) It causes students to contemplate the role of religion in the lives of the young; (2) It allows students to gain some background in several religions; (3) It provides interesting subjects for research; (4) It provides an interesting vehicle for learning some of the skills needed in doing research; and (5) It provides good subjects for composition writing. Generalizations, concepts, subject matter, and vocabulary are briefly outlined. Sixteen cognitive and affective objectives are identified. Detailed initiatory, developmental, and culminating activities are described. Evaluation suggestions are given followed by numerous references for both student and teacher. (Author/BC)
