Assignment
1: Report on the Religious Life of Planet Earth 



Due
Week 4 and worth 120 points


Assume
you are from another planet and have been sent to Earth to determine if it is a
religious planet or not (something very important to your people). Your
superiors are expecting a report back from you.


Write
a 2-3 page paper in which you:




  1. Discuss the
         criteria you will employ to determine if people on earth are religious —
         in other words, what does religion look like.

  2. Describe three
         (3) examples of behaviors or beliefs you observe that meet the criteria
         you established above.

  3. Based on your
         observations, explain what the function of religion appears to be
         on Earth.

  4. Aside from a
         functional understanding of religion, determine how else your observations
         could be interpreted. Provide specific examples to support your response.


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 tile 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.”

  • Recognize how
         daily life within various religions and current affairs are influenced by
         religion.

  • Describe the
         varieties of religious experience and practice in a wide range of
         cultures.

  • Develop written
         pieces that demonstrate an analysis of a topic relevant to the course.

  • Use technology
         and information resources to research issues in religion.

  • Write clearly
         and concisely about world religions using proper writing mechanics.


Grading
for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic/organization of the
paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric.
