Discovering Diversity explains and explores the major world religions that now form part of the fabric of Aotearoa New Zealand's multicultural society. It introduces the reader to some of the beliefs and practices of these faiths, with the aim of increasing empathy, understanding and knowledge. Its curriculum focus is Social Studies Level 5, and it covers the Achievement Objectives: Understand how cultural interaction impacts on cultures and societies; Understand that people move between places and how this has consequences for the people and the places; Understand how the ideas and actions of people in the past have had a significant impact on people's lives. Part 1 looks at how the introduction of Christianity helped shaped New Zealand as a bicultural nation, and at how more recent immigration is transforming our country into a multicultural society. Part 2 focuses on the six major world religions: Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism. Part 3 prepares students to conduct a social inquiry based on what they have learnt. The book includes personal histories of young people following these faiths, giving the reader an appreciation of some of the challenges they face. Interesting and thought-provoking activities are included throughout the book, focusing in particular on cultural interaction. The text is highly illustrated with specially commissioned photographs for which the photographer was granted access to mosques, temples, churches, and the homes of some of the people featured in the book.
