Different Drummers supplemental
materials were developed in California to meet the needs of public school
teachers to include more diversity in their "teaching about religion"
curriculum. [California mandates " teaching about religion" and
its History/Social Science Framework and Content Standards have placed religion
content in grades 6, 7, and 8.]
DD was pilot tested in
California public schools, grades 6, 7, and 8. Pilot teachers helped correlate
content within the supplemental module with the curriculum
framework and standards (grades 6-12).
The instructional module was reviewed for legal
compliance and approved with respect to social content by the California Department of Education.
California schools can use school funds to purchase these supplemental
