Topic: comparative religions
Target Audience: middle school students and their parents
Time Frame: 1 hour and 45 minutes
Staff: rabbi, minister, priest, family educator and 3 teachers
Overview: participants prepare interview questions and then dialogue with local clergy
Goals: To help middle school students and their families explore how they fit into the world around them, and to develop an understanding and appreciation of other religions in your community. A-to-Z directions include program planning commencing one month prior to the workshop. This includes polling students for their questions and thoughts, holding a parent focus group, inviting clergy, full program timing, sample interview questions, resource tips, a send-home flyer and reminder card, and an evaluation form.
Wow – look at all the planning time you saved! Creative ways to fund this program: These materials are completely reusable, so ask your educator or rabbi to pay for the workshop. The entire program is personalized with your site’s name, making you guys look grrrreat! Do you have an enthusiastic family or doting grandparents? Ask them to be an “angel” donor and we’ll personalize the program with their name too.
