Three Monotheistic Religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam. Slide Exercise.
This slide exercise is intended to communicate information about the three major monotheistic religions of the Middle East: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The exercise focuses on beliefs, events, symbols, institutions, and practices important to the three religions, but the main purpose is to impress upon students the many things that these three religions have in common, as well as their differences. To prepare for the slide show, the exercise sets up a procedure in which students are asked to identify on paper which religion each of the 20 slides belongs to (illustrations of the slides are included with the exercise). Identification of the slides with an explanatory paragraph is provided for the teacher. (BT)
