Instructions

Goal: The goal of this assignment is for the student to create a presentation that goes over many aspects of a chosen religion, how that religion is viewed and its place in the world, and deliver this information using a presentation program.

Course Objectives: 2 & 3

Description:

As you come to the close of your study of World Religions, it has become evident the past two weeks that religions will continue to have a place on the world stage and influence in the lives of many around the globe. In an ever-changing world environment that seems to get smaller every day, nations are discovering along the way that it is harder and harder to stay isolated from one another. In our study of World Religions, if there is one thing that that stands out above the rest, it is the notion that our world faces numerous global issues that demand attention and solutions for the betterment of all of the world. Could it be, given the historical nature of World Religions, that working together instead of in conflict with one another, that the world’s major religions could provide real-life, world-changing solutions that would pave the way for the betterment of humankind across the world? That is not to say it would be easy, but the benefits could be enormous for providing solutions to the Global Issues we face today.

It is with that thought in mind that for your Week 7 Presentation: My Favorite World World Religion, you are being asked to develop a multi-media presentation representing what has become for you over this course, My Favorite World Religion.

What is their importance to the culture of children?

Domestic fiction is that group of work that is centered on real life. Children read fictional stories but can easily picture themselves in that scene or performing those tasks. These works of domestic fiction help children develop emotional maturity and a sense of self-worth starting with identifying with their parents and family.

Review “Psyche’s Art” by Louisa M. Alcott and choose another from the other areas of Fiction in your assigned readings.

Write a 350- to 700-word paper where you compare the two stories you chose in how they teach emotional maturity and instill a sense of imagination. What conclusions can you draw about the two types of fiction you chose? What is their importance to the culture of children?

Format your assignment according to appropriate course-level APA guidelines.

Note: Students who are enrolled in the BA in English program may be required to use MLA formatting.

Choose what will be included in the anthology. You may include short stories, poems, drama, books (fiction and nonfiction), films, journal articles,  and magazine articles.

Create an Anthology– For this option, you will compile an anthology (i.e. collection) of articles, poems, and/or short stories that are from the same period, same theme, or same literary form. You must include an introduction to show your understanding of the subject and provide an annotated bibliography that includes a summary and justification for inclusion into the anthology (i.e. collection).

GUIDELINES

An anthology is a collection. You are putting together a collection of readings!!

STEP 1 – Choose a topic for your anthology/collection. How are your sources connected? Are they all from the same author? Are they all from the same time period? Are they all poems? Are they all short stories? Are they all the same theme?

STEP 2 – Choose what will be included in the anthology. You may include short stories, poems, drama, books (fiction and nonfiction), films, journal articles,  and magazine articles. There should be a minimum of 10 sources in your anthology. Six of the sources must be from the textbook.

STEP 3– Write an introduction to your anthology. The introduction should state explicitly the topic/theme of your collection. The introduction should also show that you are knowledgeable about the subject. If you cite any information (i.e. quote, summarize, or paraphrase) in your introduction, be sure to include the full bibliographic information on a work cited page at the end of your anthology.

STEP 4 – Include an annotated bibliography of your sources in MLA format. There should be a minimum of eight sources. Six of the sources must be from the textbook. The annotation (paragraph) must include a summary AND an explanation of why that source is included in the anthology. The annotation (paragraph) should be a minimum of 100 words. YOU DO NOT NEED A WORKS CITED page unless you cited a source in your introduction.

STEP 5– Make sure your sources are listed in alphabetical order by the author(s) last name. Please include ALL the bibliographic information (where it may be found) in MLA format. If you need help with getting the full bibliographic information, please let me know and/or contact one of the campus librarians. They are NOT on campus because the campus is closed, so please send the librarian an email if you need assistance. I have included additional resources in the the Anthology folder to help you with writing an annotated bibliography.

Tips for Getting Started:

  1. Once you have made your selections above, you must examine the texts to arrive at a thesis, which will be your statement about what you think these works suggest about your theme.
  2. Each body paragraph should begin with a topic sentence that pertains to your thesis.
  3. Each body paragraph should include quotations from both texts.
  4. In your interpretation and work with these quotations, you should aim to show how these texts achieve what you have claimed is their comment on your theme.
  5. Quote the text directly and draw out meaning by paying close attention to wording, images, metaphors, dialogue, or characterization. You do need to address all of these things. I simply offer them as a few valuable approaches.
