On November 14th, we were so lucky to have Kate Soules (@KateSoules) and Benjamin Marcus (@bpmarcus) who work with The Religious Freedom Center of the Newseum Institute (@NewseumReligion ) host #worldgeochat. The chat they hosted focused on teaching world religions. This was a topic I know I needed more information on. I was thrilled to learn of so many exceptional resources to help improve my instruction on teaching world religions. For this post I wanted to gather all of the resources I learned about and put them in one location so that I can reference them in the future. The remainder of this post will be a composite list of those resources.
