Step 1

Your goal is to assist students to understand what religion means for Marx, Durkheim, and Weber.

Possible methods:

      • Break students into groups of three or so; assign each group a passage from either Marx, Durkheim, or Weber; ask each group to respond to the question verbally and in writing, “what does this passage suggest about M, D, or W’s theory of religion?; after 10-15 minutes, discuss the groups’ findings as a class; have each group submit its response.


      • Ask students to come to class with a typed paragraph exploring one writer’s passage about religion; pair students with another who wrote on the same author and have them compare interpretations; debrief as a class to generate a collective view of Marx, Durkheim, and Weber; have students submit their paragraphs.
