|Largest Sikhism Resource||This website is a useful website for both teachers and students. It would be a great resource for both to visit. It is also a great addition to the grade 11 World Religions course because this particular website provides information about Sikhism and a number of related links with useful quotations, articles and both audio and visual resources for the classroom. It also works to clarify the teachings of the Great Gurus in respect to what they practiced, how they practiced it and how they educate others about their religion. This website would be a wonderful addition because it not only educates us on the fundamentals of Sikhism but it also provides contemporary issues which arise within the Sikh community.–Diana Santapaga|
