JC Religion Journal 2017

As a group most of you have decided to do the following Journal Title. Focussing on the Ramadan in the Muslim faith.

2.c: A case study on the ways that a time of religious importance is marked each year by the members of one of the religions listed above.

I will post several links here over the coming weeks of clips and articles which you are required to watch or read as part of your research. This is extra work required on top of the work we do together in class. No slacking please 🙂

The following is a short RTE documentary on what Ramadan seems to Muslims living in Ireland.

RTE, Hungry for God.

Next is a version more suitable for primary school children but still valuable.
