I received a grant from Xavier’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching to enhance my course: Comparative Religion. My plan is to include a service learning component. I’m thinking about contacting local churches and places of worship and ask if they’d like my students to teach a session or sessions about other religions to them so that the members might better understand other religions.
I am also thinking about creating a service learning project that can reach out to the community and in some way promote understanding and tolerance about various religious traditions. Any suggestions?
