This curriculum project explores three genres of spiritual location: the synagogue, the mosque, and the cathedral. The project examines their distinct elements and the elements that tie them together as sacred places that transcend time and place. It lists five student objectives: (1) identify the basic structural elements; (2) explain the use of light and decoration; (3) compare and contrast various architectural elements; (4) complete a chart that makes correlations among synagogue, mosque, and cathedral; and (5) write a poem that reflects learning and questions concerning the unit. The project contains extensive notes on architectural elements, teacher notes, strategies, and materials needed. Contains a 19-item bibliography. (BT)
