You need to have a conversation/ interview/ dialogue/ whatever you want to call it with someone related to religion and/or topics related to religion. Exception: They cannot be an immediate family member or close acquaintance who attends the same denomination/branch of religion as you do. (Unless that person is a "leader" of worship, a person with a unique role or history, etc.) Again, if you are in doubt, just ask me if I think your plan will work. I expect the conversation to be a minimum of thirty minutes, and I would also expect you to do some thinking and planning about what you would like to discuss and learn.
(Note that you do not need to find an "expert" here. If you want to learn more by talking to someone who practices "religion x" (when you do not practice "religion x"), that is fine.)
TO RECEIVE CREDIT: You will post a comment to this page before the beginning of class time on the due date. (Anytime earlier than that is also fine.) Posts made either during class time on the due date or after will receive a minimum of a 10% deduction. (Expect a 10% per class period deduction for late assignments.)
Your blog comment should address the following points, as well as anything else you find interesting and/or relevant.
- Who did
you talk to? Why did
you choose to talk to them?
- What were
some of the most interesting or useful parts of the conversation?
- What do
you "take away" from the experience? In what way(s) was it worthwhile?
