Co-authors of Ways of the World, 3rd Edition, Bob Strayer and Eric Nelson host a workshop at the AP® Annual Conference in Anaheim, CA.

 

Participants in this session explore religion’s place in major issues in world history. They examine how religion finds expression in human history: by believing certain things, behaving in particular ways, belonging to specific groups, and beholding something of an unseen world. In particular, participants engage with the opportunities and challenges associated with comparative approaches to the study of religion. The session culminates by exploring the uses of primary sources in the study of religion in AP World History. Through group exercises and discussion, participants identify specific learning strategies to employ in teaching about religion in a world historical framework.
