World Religions Course Pilot
As an IB Candidate School, Roberto Clemente Community Academy is piloting a new course – World Religions – that will hopefully be offered as part of the Diploma Programme starting next fall. Throughout the course, students are exploring the core beliefs and practices of different religions by answering the following questions:
- What is the human condition?
- Where are we going?
- How do we get there?
As the semester comes to a close, World Religion students are finishing their research projects. After exploring the key beliefs of Hinduism through the reading and interpretation of the Hindu holy texts, students are connecting those beliefs to a specific Hindu god or goddess. They look forward to expanding their research to other religions in the second semester!
