There are currently only a handful of regular opportunities for public school teachers to expand their knowledge of religious diversity, teaching about religion, and religious liberty. One of those opportunities is the Religious Literacy for Educators course that Chris Murray, a high school social studies teacher, has been offering to his colleagues in Montgomery County Public Schools for the past 5 years. This panel will feature four teachers who have participated in this program over the years. They will discuss why they chose to take the course, their experiences during the course, and what they took back to their classrooms afterwards. You don’t want to miss this unique opportunity to hear from early childhood, elementary, and middle school educators on their experiences with religious literacy education.
