In the learning journal, you should record your activities, and record problems you may have encountered, as well as your notes and thoughts about the material. In addition, you should consider the following questions for reflection:
What are some of the processes in your professional, personal or academic life that can be managed differently? How so? What would you expect this new approach’s outcomes to be?

Share your thoughts and ideas on this week’s discussion forum prompts in a couple of paragraphs.
Be sure to cite any resources that you use in APA format. Direct quotes should not be used in discussions.

- What treaties has your government signed or ratified regarding religious intolerance?
- What programs can your country suggest to help build respect for religion around the world?
