The Origins of Religion: How Supernatural Beliefs Evolved

From LiveScience, this brief article about evolutionary psychology and religion serves as a convenient inventory of the usual and now popularized claims about the human origins of religion.  Links to sources are also included.  The brief article can be used to introduce students to these ideas often cited in the popular press, then follow that intro with some critical analysis.  Russell Saltzman offers a sardonic critique here.
