A World of Diversity - Student Textbook for Religion and Society Unit 1
: Kath Engebretson and Marie Bagh
This book guides students to complete Unit 1 in the revised Victorian Certificate of Education Study Religion and Society. It closely follows the Outcomes and Areas of Study of the revised unit, developing its teaching and learning sequence around the three areas of study of A brief overview of religious traditions, The diversity of religious communities in Australia and Religious identity and life experience.
The book systematically introduces students to the content proposed in the study design, and provides a wide range of activities through which they may engage critically with this content.
As the title suggests, it is intended to introduce students to the diverse world of religions.
They will encounter many religions as they use the book, from Australian indigenous religions, to the religions of the ancient world and the religions that have made Australia a multi-religious nation since the middle of the twentieth century.
