RELS 201 AMU Introduction to world’s religions assistance is available on Domyclass.
In your study of Christianity this past week, you discovered that it is the largest religion found throughout the world today and continues to grow in the number of adherents who follow it. However, throughout your study this past week, we discovered that is NOT the case in North America or in the United States specifically. No, in fact you discovered that the practice of Christianity is being met with declining numbers in the United States. In your Forum reply this week, focus on just one (1) of the possibilities that have been offered as to why this might be the case . Discuss whether you agree or disagree with the assessment and detail the reasoning behind your belief. Be sure to provide strong academic support for your viewpoints and reasoning.
Grading Rubric: See Attachment
Initial posts must be 250+ words, using correct grammar and spellcheck, posted by Thursday 11:55 p.m. ET each week. Part of the requirement for a substantive post is to bring something new to the conversation. Read the forum prompt and fully answer it, demonstrate understanding of the lesson/content, include evidence from firsthand experience, reference to the course materials, and apply what you’re discussing to work, life, and reality.
For Peer replies, respond substantively to at least TWO of your classmates for full credit, with 100+ words each post. This helps build a friendly and collegial environment in our class, and its part of your forum grade. Substantively answering questions that the instructor (me!) asks during that week’s discussion DO count toward your participation points. Making substantive posts will make the discussion more interesting and educational for everyone. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Use spell-check and check your word count.
If you do quote from a source, please list the source at the bottom of your post.
Your responses should be a friendly greeting and include two or more of the following:
Asking a thoughtful question
Share additional content or sources
Share your insight and experience/offer perspective
Give encouragement and making other connections to the topic
The purpose of peer replies is to develop academic discussion and take our thinking to a deeper level in applying this week’s topic.
Initial post (250+ words) due: Thursday by 11:55 p.m. ET
Responses (100+ words each) to 2 or more peers and/or your instructor due: Sunday by 11:55 p.m. ET
