Sample topics would be: Judaism and its concepts of helping others in
relation to service-learning;a formal paper on Ashin Wirathu, fundamentalist
Buddhist leader in Burma/Myanmar;background on Jean Kwok, author of Girl in
Translation; finding information on Chinese New Year for a creative
presentation; doing background research to compare to a video on Scientology,
as well as finding such a video; locating the On Being presentation on
Sitting Bull/Tatanka Iyotake and then finding other information about him;
finding a mosque to visit in the area and doing background research on it;
doing research in preparation to interview a Hindu leader.
Upload class assignment and other relevant documents:
What are your learning outcomes for this session? At the end of the session,
students will understand that each assignment involves some form of research,
will know what kind of research to do for a given option, and will know which
library, and other, resources are appropriate for that option, and where to
begin to find those resources. They will have located and used the Religion
research guide. They will also know the ways to contact librarians for help,
and when to do so. I appreciate the sessions where the students are given
one of the above options and begin to locate sources for that option, which
they then share with the rest of the class. This actively involves all of the
students, and lets them begin to explore the resources, particularly from the
religion research guide.
