Teaching Resources

Always eager to find new teaching resources, Cadge and colleagues are happy to share the following they created. Boston’s Hidden Sacred Spaces provides photographs and materials to spark thinking about how people from different religious backgrounds share space and how these settings vary by location and over time. Lesson plans are here. A case study for teaching about multiple religious memberships is here, as part of the Case Study Project of Harvard’s Pluralism Project. This guide might help social scientists write literature reviews. And this syllabus collection can help faculty looking to integrate the study of religion into courses on other topics.
