The following is an assignment in which students are asked to research one of the world's major religions and create a PPT which summarizes the main ideas and key concepts behind the religion.
This activity has a typed introduction, purpose, task, instructions for contents of PPT slides, suggested web link, and world religions list.
This can also be turned into a collaborative project/assignment as well to be presented in class.
I usually have students work in pairs and then present their PPT's as the rest of the class takes notes. After all presentations I give a quiz over the contents of the World Religions PPT's and Presentations.
