The cultural studies approach, which examines the particular context in which one interprets his or her religion, is particularly important when it comes to understanding religions like Islam, whose adherents come from vastly different backgrounds....   [tags: Interpret Islam]

My Holistic Approach to Teaching Reading - My methodology of teaching reading would be the Holistic approach. This approach includes whole language and look & say. I like that the emphasis is placed on teaching reading, writing, listening, and oral language.
