The facilitator will not and cannot function as the resident expert on world religion. He remains a student along with the rest of the class. Perhaps particular students may have a better grasp of segments of the subject matter than he has. Through class and homework interaction together we will all learn. Class discussion, homework, quizzes and a final examination will assess the effectiveness of this learning environment for us all.
Reading – Read the assigned chapter sections in your textbook
Class attendance – Attend scheduled classes and participate in discussions
Homework – You will be assigned two course projects described below, however circumstance may require additional assignments. For instance if mission requirements force an inordinate break in the scheduling of classes, homework may be assigned as a refresher, or if a concept is in need of clarification the class will explore activities or research that might assist in the learning.
1. Discuss the effect of its beliefs and practice upon the worldview of its adherents.
2. State your views on the impact of this worldview upon relations with other people.
3. Consider as well the level of difficulty or ease with which other groups may have in relating to that faith group.
4. The text may be used as a foundation for the paper, however it is expected that you use additional resources. You might want to interview a believer/adherent for example. Resources may be found on line at official websites for the particular Faith Group. Books, periodicals and writings online or hardcopies may be available. See the teacher for approval or suggestions of such resources.
