Last week, Class IV students in Oris Bryant's History of the Human Community course taught classmates about the major world religions. Each group researched a religion, prepped a lesson plan and study guide, and presented historical and contemporary facts about the faith. The presentations also dispelled misconceptions and stereotypes. Here, Saffiyah Coker (r.) and Natalie Maher (l.) talk through the timeline of Islam.
