Description: 

Educators must be prepared to teach students from a range of religious backgrounds, including those who come from "traditional" religious communities, those who are seeking and shopping around, and those who have little orientation to religion at all. What issues-practical and theological-does this raise for how the teacher approaches matters of faith? How can teachers draw on the knowledge and experiences of students in the classroom to deepen student engagement when learning about religion? What should be the aims of Christian education in a multifaith classroom? The course will explore faith-focused teaching and learning in the context of religious diversity. It takes the Catholic tradition as its primary point of departure, but is attentive to other Christian traditions as well.
