This is a journal posted on the Public Broadcasting Service site. It focuses on religious trends in America and religious and ethical issues. It is a good site to consult if one wants to know what religious and ethical concerns are currently being discussed in the media and on-line. Because of its general focus it can make one aware of trends and needs in religion and public ethics. It is helpful if one wants to lead students into questions of the relevence of what they are learning in religious studies in their lives and in our country.
Excellent resources on this site, and really fine resource for both the classroom and the on line course.

I have referenced this site for years. I love both this site and the weekly television show associated with it. For me, the most useful material at this site are the video pieces and accompanying transcripts. Each week features up to three major stories with video pieces between 3 - 10 minutes in length. I have been able to show these in our computer equiped classroom, using RealPlayer. Each story highlighted at the site also features both internal and external links to related material.
Site contains a good search feature. If you want to find videos, simply include "watch" in your search along with key words for your topic. Site has been updated as of Dec. 2008. Videos are now embedded within the transcript pages, more videos for older stories have been made available, many now in Windows Media Player format rather than Real Player (some still in both formats). Navigation on the new, more interactive site, does seem to be problematic and not as intuitive as the older version. Episodes before Dec. 2008 can be accessed through the archive at the site (link available on the site home page)
