World Religions: Finding Common Ground is a project-based course that asks students to consider one of the greatest puzzles of world history: How can members of diverse religions come together as one community in which the specific practices of each are honored? Students spend the semester researching a wide variety of world religions and, using their findings, design an interfaith center that takes on this question, aided by frequent teacher feedback and discussion. Students are invited to incorporate their own interests into this endeavor—past projects have focused on food, clothing, history, and social justice—and to shape it in the manner that is most meaningful for them.
