Jim Bennett of Santa Clara University has posted the following query to H-AMREL:
An excellent post by Paul Harvey ("Religion and Politics at the Rotary Club") on his Religion in American History blog made me curious how others teach religion and politics, and especially how people plan to integrate the election this year. Do you have particular excercises, readings or resources that you've found particularly helpful oreffective in teaching the topic, whether it is providing historicalcontext or exploring contemporary issues? Those of us on the quarter system who are still fine tuning our fall syllabi would grateful for any suggestions. Thanks in advance.
Jim's query has generated plenty of replies and interesting classroom ideas from a variety of perspectives. Click here for a sampling, starting with Sept. 12 and going forward.
