Fusion: Belief Systems
In today’s world, teaching belief systems can be both difficult and controversial. Students may have an idea of world religions, but often confuse fact with opinion. We designed this unit to offer students insight on the foundations of each religion, and the comparisons among them. This was not only informative, but offered opportunity for character education. Students end this unit with a culminating thematic essay and are assessed in analyzing historical content, proper structure, organization, and word choice.
