One of a series of seven units designed to develop the reading and writing skills of low achievers in the social studies, this activity book focuses on the theme of religion. The booklet can be used for high school classes, individual study in alternative and continuing high schools, and adult education classes. An introduction to polytheism and monotheism precedes sections on Judaism, Islam, Mohammed, Christianity, and modern changes in religion. Each section contains a brief reading stressing vocabulary development and skill in distinguishing sounds. Writing activities are provided in the separate teacher's guide. (LP)
