World View Chart Assignments
Due Weeks 2 through 10 and worth 35 points each week, with a total of 315 points.
A world view is a fundamental or basic orientation of thinking – like a mindset – which guides a culture and / or a person’s life. Like a point of view, it can be built of concepts, ideas, values, emotions, and ethics. Weltanschauung is the German word for this idea. Your goal for this course is to understand the world views of these various religions. In order to prepare you for your final assignment, you will outline the world views of various religions in the chart below, adding to it each week.
Please take a few moments to prepare and review a sample completed World View Chart below to use as a template for Weeks’ 2-9 World View Chart assignments. There is one more version you might like in Week 2 as well.
Please note: you are required to write full sentences, with correct grammar, etc., as for any paper. This is NOT just a chart to jot or paste notes into for the final paper. You may use it to write the final paper and the better you do now, the easier that assignment will be. Read the instructions carefully. You are to use APA style for in-text citations and for the full reference for each category/chart.
When there is more than one religion, you should do a chart for each one or a combination chart on the two religions in that week. One of the templates says ‘ one religion per chart’ so some students pick one of the two. You need to write information about each religion, except Zoroastrianism.
For this assignment, students will complete the weekly area of the chart, filling in the aspects of each religion as it is presented in the readings and resources. This chart, when complete, will be the starting point for the written assignment, due in Week 10.
For each weekly submission:
Origin of All Things
Nature of God
View of Human Nature
View of Good and Evil
View of “Salvation”
View of After Life
Practices and Rituals
Celebrations and Festivals
Hinduism and Jainism
