Christianity has heavily influenced life in the West, but few of us realize just how integrated Christian ideals are into the fabric of life. Through this research project, students will discover how heavily influenced we are by religion, whether we realize it or not.
Students will pick at least one film/franchise from the list below and explore the role of religion as an influence for its world, its characters, the plot, and its themes and morals.
The films include: the Harry Potter franchise, The Lord of the Rings franchise, the Star Wars franchise, The Matrix franchise, The Chronicles of Narnia franchise.
A rubric to evaluate presentations is included, as well as a couple of links to get students started on research.
