WebQuest Title: History and
Religion: Crossing Over to Understand
Author: Darlene J. Corcoran
This WebQuest builds on your experience of inventing a religion and analyzing the insider and outsider perspectives. This lesson asks you to apply this knowledge to a real life situation.
Your group will research a religion using the WebQuest. Using the information gathered, you will create a travel brochure and present it to the class.
Select the religion your group has been assigned for this project.
The resources for each religion are located on the process page
