RELS 201 AMU Introduction to world’s religions assistance is available on Domyclass.
Buddha is said to have spoken of his teachings as, “a raft to take us to the farther shore.” What does this idea have to do with the Four Noble Truths and the role of the Eightfold Path in the life of a Buddhist? What relationship do you find in Buddhism for offering a response to the practice of gaining self-identity through consumerism today?
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
