America's Religions book cover


America's Religions: An Educator's Guide to Beliefs and Practices
Benjamin J. Hubbard; John Hatfield; James A. Santucci
ISBN: 1563084694

Description: Using this "dictionary" of religion and culture, teacher will have access to the understanding they need to build unbiased classrooms. The book is arranged to cover most all of the known (and little known) religions in America from the Bahai Faith to Zoroastrianism. Each section covers topics: Origins, Beliefs, Sacred Book/Scriptures, Practices, Main Subgroups, Common Misunderstandings and Stereotypes, Classroom Concerns, Population Data and Further Readings as well as noting current web page addresses if available. Though there are many guides to religions in America, this book has the unique niche of looking at each religion as it may affect teacher practice in the classroom and other student groups-thus its appeal to public and school libraries as well as classroom teachers and other youth leaders.
