WHY DO YOU WRITE CURRICULUM AND RESOURCE MATERIALS?
There are so many topics that remain unexplored by curriculum, especially for Jr. and Sr. High age youth. My ideas come from working with the youth and talking with them about what they are interested in and find both fun and informative.

HOW IS THIS MATERIAL APPLICABLE TO UU RELIGIOUS EDUCATION/EXPLORATION?
The material incorporates the UU principles and invites exploration of our own and other religious traditions, practices, and points of view.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE MATERIAL THAT IS INCLUSIVE RELATED TO GEOGRAPHY, ANTI-OPPRESSION AND (WELCOMING DIVERSITY?
First, by continually working to raise my own awareness and learn more about these topics. I also have others review the material before it is finalized.

WHAT RESOURCES HAVE YOU USED AND HOW HAVE YOU PROTECTED THOSE RESOURCES? HOW MAY PEOPLE USE YOUR MATERIALS? (Copyright concerns about using materials created by others, and about protecting your own materials)
Sources referenced have been noted in the material and permission for use has been obtained when needed.
While including the lyrics for all of the songs, and even a CD with the songs, would greatly increase the ease with which Listening Between the Lines could be used, the cost to obtain permission for so many songs would have been prohibitive. Suggestions for where that material may be found and used appropriately have been noted.
If material from my curricula is referenced, please note the source.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE IMPORTANCE OF INDEPENDENT WRITERS?
It's very important to have a variety of materials available for those working in religious education. Not only do congregations have different needs at different times, but those who are teaching and leading have different styles and need to have options to be able to increase the effectiveness with which they teach and with which students of any age learn.
