Resources for Teaching Current Events and Religion

Teaching current events?  Here are some resources that I put together for a current events elective. You'll find resources for fake news, migration and refugees, the Middle East, and white nationalism.
And if you teach world religions, here are resources that I put together for each of the different religions.  They include lessons plans, links to videos and video clips, and links to other websites. You'll also find information about methodology for teaching religion from The Harvard Literacy Project.
Finally,  if you teach indigenous religions, especially Native American religion, you might find this unit plan helpful.  The plan includes four lessons: one on the features of Native American religion, one on the Native American encounter with British colonists, one on the colonial effort to reeducate Native Americans and convert them to Christianity, and one on current issues affecting Native Americans.
