1. Explore the website (see link below or search Pew Research and Religious Landscape Study).
At the bottom of the main page you will find topic areas for easy reference to social patterns.
2. Using your sociological imagination, write a paragraph about 3 social patterns you learned about religion. You can discuss why they are social patterns (group oriented) as opposed to individual choices.
3. In another paragraph, discuss how you think these patterns impact your own life? Others in your community?
