This is a Paideia seminar designed to give students of all levels a better understanding of Hinduism and ideas such as dharma, karma, moksha, samsara, and reincarnation.
By annotating the text prior to the seminar and then discussing it in an open environment, students are able to make meaningful connections to the text. Hinduism can be a challenging subject, but it is also one of my favorites because it involves a lot of higher-level thinking and philosophy.
It works well in my 6th grade class, but it would be ideal in a high school setting (particularly an AP Course).
