Week 5: Field Trip Report Reminder (Due week 6)
Due Wedesday by 11:59pmPoints 200
This is a reminder that if you haven’t already started preparing for the Field Trip Report project that you should. It isn’t due at the end of this week (Week 5) but rather at the end of Week 6.
For this project you are required to visit a religious site not your own. This could be a synagogue, a Christian church, a mosque, or a temple. The purpose of this trip is to report on what you saw -normally a religious service—and how it compares to your own religious upbringing and/or current practice.
The report should give a description of the site and a detailed summary of the religious service. Describe what you observed. What were the material expressions of the service (statues, paintings, music, etc). Was there anything special going on that day (e.g., baptisms)? If there was a sermon, analyze it. In brief, make it “up close and personal.” Conclude with your personal reaction to this experience.
This paper should be at least three (3) pages in length (1500 words) with proper APA formatting. This includes proper documentation. This is a formal academic paper so pay careful attention to the basics of writing a good English composition.
The Field Trip Report is an investigative study of an aspect of the religious experience, practice or belief of a group and/or individual adherents. It is important to emphasize that this is an academic exercise, which requires preliminary research (about the to-be-visited site) as well as subsequent research (about what you observed/experienced).
Don’t forget to submit your assignment.
