I had a fantastic night hosting #sschat on July 12th on religious literacy in education. My Twitter chat session was titled: “Religion Matters in Every Classroom.” It was full of participation and energy from teachers across the nation. But if you didn’t have time to catch it on Twitter, I have compiled the Q&A from the hour-long Twitter chat in today’s blog. I hope you find the questions and answers practical and valuable for your classroom.
