Although religious educators often refer to religion in the lives of children and young people, and recommend that religious education draw on this experience in their teaching, little research has been done in the area. Using techniques developed during an earlier study of British Hindu children, an ethnographic study of children and young people from Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Sikh backgrounds in the context of their families and faith communities will be conducted in parts of the West Midlands. The research findings will be published and used in developing an MA course for teachers of religious education. In addition, curriculum materials (eg., schoolbooks and broadcasts) for use by pupils studying religious education and by teachers of religious education will be developed drawing on the projects empirical research data and employing the projects theoretical work in religious education. The project forms part of the wider Religious Education and Community Project based in the Department of Arts Education at the University of Warwick.
