Study Guide Final Paper Review the document on Canvas that dr. Enriquez posted well. We are writing a final paper 900-1200 words long. So about 2-3 pages single spaced. She specified the writing style, font, margins and font size. For any of the options that you can chose, make sure you quote some passages from the readings and reflect upon these. Citing wise: Make in text citations. Not the usual MLA you are used to. She mentioned that a bibliography at the end is not necessary. So, we have 3 options: 1. You answer the question that we asked in the very beginning of the semester: Is Buddhism a religion. - Reflecting on what you have learned this semester, do you think it is a religion or not? Either answer works as long as you justify your answer with examples. Don’t forget to define what religion is in your eyes. - The specific guide questions are in the document posted. - Support your theses with solid arguments and passages from the readings. 2. Write a blog entry. - This one is supposed to look like an actual blog entry. It does not need to be posted online, but should read as a blog post; easily understandable and written for the wider public. There are 3 optional things you can talk about: 1. Pick a teaching or practice (doctrine, sutra, etc.) Give a introduction to this subject and explain it to a unknowing reader. Keep it simple and make sure it is understandable for anyone who knows nothing about Buddhism. My suggestion would be; do not tie it to different parts of Buddhism, but do elaborate broadly on the subject you choose. 2. Apply a teaching to an issue in the world. This could be for example human trafficking, child labor, hunger, but also a recent event like the Brussels attacks. How could you view these struggles from a Buddhist point of view, and how does this aid your understanding and could it possibly solve anything? She suggested going back to the Selfie blog we looked at at the beginning of this semester. This was a good example of the format she wants to see. 3. Reflect on any type of art form (a piece of art, a song, a poem, a play, a movie, etc.) and use Buddhist teachings in your reflecting. 3. Propose your own project. - If you do not feel comfortable with any of these options you can propose another option to dr. Enriquez and discuss this with her. She said that the options are not mandatory but can be used as a guide. If you want to do something else, I would suggest talking to her. At this point, if you are using this guide, I would pick either option 1 or 2, since the due date is getting close. Whichever option you choose, make sure you review the guiding questions on her sheet well. These will be the points she is looking for. Good luck, and if you need help, you know where you can find me!
