One of the ways I start the year is by offering an explanation of why it is so important to me to teach this course. One of the many reasons I give is simply that as Americans, we tend to state that we are very religious, but we don’t have a whole lot of knowledge about religions, especially those other than are own. I give the kids this 15-question quiz from the PewResearch Religion & Public Life project and we compare their personal results to the survey results. I’m happy to say that after 6 years of teaching this course, I came in at 100%. How’d you do?
