The Woolf Institute's transatlantic project, Teaching our own and other faiths in schools: International Issues in Religious Education, was organised in conjunction with the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education. This project aimed to identify and share international best practice in teaching RE with a view to providing high quality professional development for schools and teachers in the UK and US. The particular sample of schools chosen to participate are secondary schools, largely with a Muslim, Jewish or Christian faith foundation - and a few state secularist schools in the UK.
Through an international Symposium and Conference this project identified principles for teaching and learning about other faiths, in both countries, which are both culturally sensitive and theologically aware. These principles were then disseminated across schools in the US and UK via a written report and toolkit.
We are pleased to announce that the Toolkit is now freely accessible via download and can be accessed here.
