Teaching and Doing Justice Globally
Unformatted Document Text:  Teaching and Doing Justice Globally prior to the Advocacy course. Ninety-three percent attended religious services at least weekly (including 33 percent who attended more often) before the course, and there was no significant change after taking the Advocacy course.

In questions 25 and 26, students were asked to what extent they agreed, before and after taking the course, with five statements about awareness, knowledge and concern for global issues: Overall, 57 percent of respondents indicated that their level of agreement increased on all questions.
