Visit one of the online locations listed below or select a religious site which provides a virtual tour that matches your interests. Write a report in your own words that shares your experience with the class (please be careful not to plagiarize [do not simply copy and paste from the website or another student’s posting]… see plagiarism policy in the Syllabus).
Your report should be at least 250 words (of course longer is fine) and needs to include your responses to the following questions:
Why did you choose the site that you did?
Which world religion does the site represent?
What did you learn about this particular place that you didn’t know before your visit to this site?
What would you like to explore in more detail if you were given the opportunity to visit this religious site in person? [please be specific, don’t just say, ‘I would like to explore this place’]
Provide one other website connected to a religious site not on the list which has an on-line field trip that you would recommend to the class. [The recommended website must represent a different location from the one you wrote your report on.]
Post your report on the On-line Field Trip discussion group prior to 11:59pm on 11/10. This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade or 100 points.
