Teaching Religious Education: The Ethics and Religious Culture Program as Case Study
Keywords:Ethics and Religious Culture program, Professional Development, Religious literacy, Quebec, Teaching
Responding to religious diversity and the new reality of schooling, the Ethics and Religious Culture (ERC) Program was introduced as a mandatory subject for all students in Quebec, Canada. Now in it's tenth year, the ERC has faced both challenges and successes in it's implementation. Though many studies have been written around the wider concepts of religious education and religious literacy in the public system, few studies have included voices from educators. Jafralie and Zaver's qualitative research study examines the potentials and struggles of the ERC Program, and by doing so, raise important considerations around the effective teaching of religion.
