Religions are personal belief systems that bring cultural diversity and can be used to create unity or conflict. In this 9-week unit, Grade 8 MYP I&S students will be introduced to the major religions of the world. They will begin to develop an understanding that religion has led to significant instances and patterns of conflict and cooperation around the world within, between, and among religious groups and peoples. They will research into several instances of religious conflict and unity, and develop a persuasive, valid, well-constructed argument that recognizes different perspectives and implications communicated and structured appropriately for a specific audience and purpose.
