FINAL PAPER: World View Chart Writing Assignment

Due Week 10 and worth 235 points

This assignment uses the information you have gathered for your weekly World View Chart Assignments.

Choose
ONE (1) category (origin of all things, nature of god, view of human
nature, view of good and evil, etc.) from the chart to focus on for this
assignment. Consider how the selected category relates to all of the
religions covered and to your own social or work experiences.

Write a two to three (2-3) page paper in which you:

  1. Select
    ONE (1) category from the completed World View Chart. Provide a
    rationale for choosing this category. What is compelling about this
    category? Why is it important in the study of religion?
  2. Describe
    the selected content and explain the significance of the selected
    category across all of the religions studied. Show in what ways the
    category is significant for each religion.
  3. Give an example of
    how you have noticed this category in your life, town or country. What
    impact does this category have in the everyday lives of people who
    practice religion in your area? (You do not have to give examples of all
    the religions in your area, just one you have noticed besides any you
    practice). For example, in Cincinnati, Ohio we have Hindu, Greek
    Orthodox, Catholic festivals in the summer. So if my category were
    “Festivals and Celebrations” I could use those events as my example.
  4. Use
    at least three (3) quality resources as references for the assignment
    and document your sources using APA Style for in-text citations and
    references. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as
    quality resources.
  5. Write clearly and coherently using correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and mechanics.

Your assignment must:

  • Be
    typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with
    one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA
    or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional
    instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the
    assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title,
    and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in
    the required assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Analyze what is meant by religion.
  • Analyze
    the similarities and differences in the primary beliefs held by major
    religious traditions and the cultures in which these religions evolved.
