Often times, religion in the classroom is a controversial issue. In this workshop, Dr. Soren Fanning of Robert Morris University will give a general overview of the role of religion in world history, not just theologically, but politically, culturally, and institutionally. Touching on a wide range of religions, including Islam, Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism, Dr. Fanning will work with teachers to on how to deal with religious misconceptions while teaching them, as well as some lessons and activities that can help to achieve these goals. Curricular materials will be provided for all teachers who attend. This workshop is being offered for three (3) ACT 48 continuing education credits, and is being held in cooperation with the Duquesne University Department of Political Science at the Duquesne University Model UN Conference.
This workshop was held on Saturday, January 28, 2012. If you would like materials from this workshop or more information about future professional development workshops, please contact our Manager of Education Programs, Michele Cahill.
