YOU WILL BE WRITING ABOUT THE CHINESE RELIGION CONFUCIANISM Instructions World Religions is divided into 6 units comprising geographical, historical, or categorical communities of faith and practice. At the end of each unit, students will submit a 2-page MLA essay in Canvas after reading and discussing key texts. Successful essays use MLA style spacing, margins, headers, direct quotes, and citations from the textbook or other assigned readings. Compose one paragraph for each of the questions (5 questions = 5 paragraphs total). You do not need to include an introduction or conclusion. Save space for each of the five responses. Review the Rubrics for Grading before writing your reflection. Use MLA citations when quoting sources. Regular discussions allow opportunities to share research and analyses in preparation for each essay. I highly recommend posting discussions or sharing VoiceThreads in each module before drafting essays. It will streamline your understanding of each category of religious expression in our course.
