World Religions Unit Plan Bundle (English and Spanish options)

This unit is designed to educate students on the 12 most common religions in the world today through web-based research: Baha’i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism and Zoroastrianism; while at the same time facilitating the development of opinions on spiritual matters, teaching tolerance, and strengthening student writing through daily prompts and a final creative writing project. A final assessment utilizing student research is provided. There are 16 days of PowerPoint presentations to guide the learning leading up to the creative writing project. Each lesson opens with a higher order thinking question designed to develop opinions and teach tolerance. Questions are presented in Spanish and English, with the option to edit out the Spanish. The file “writing rubric” contains a student friendly rubric based on the WIDA writing rubric which should be used daily to evaluate student writing and allow opportunities for teachers to conference with students on how to move to the next level. Following a period where students write their answers, students should be encouraged to share their answers orally and respond to each other, allowing an opportunity for students to engage in a class discussion around the questions.
