Marsden, Chapter 7

 

Final Paper Guidelines

 

I'd like for you to create a final paper that has meaning and/or interest to you.  A two page report should be posted by in the Discussion Forum thread that I will create.

Your paper must include:

  • A connection or connections to course themes.

Please read the rubrics for grading this paper carefully.

For the discussion this week, you must post a two-paragraph constructive critique of one of your colleagues' papersPlease put the person's name in the subject line of your comment. You must also post a paragraph summarizing a topic from Marsden, Chapter 7 that you think is a significant topic related to religion in America in the 21st century. 

Here are some suggestions for paper topics:

  • Additional research on a topic we didn't have time to pursue (but different from any presentation you have already done)--like Deism, Native American religion, etc.
  • A presentation on a movie that relates to the course or a work of fiction or nonfiction.
  • An interview with someone who is not of your religion to learn more about his or her religion.
  • A commentary on a news event that relates to the course in some way.
  • An annotated short bibliography of Internet resources on a topic that interests you that might help students that take the class next time.
  • A short history of your family's religion (Buddhist).

 Paper is due midnight your time, Thursday, 12/3, to allow time for peer critique before the course ends, 12/4 at midnight.

 

*Note that if you choose to research and write about a religion such as Buddhism, Scientology, or other non-mainstream religion, you must connect your topic to course themes.

 

Please email me if you have any questions.
