Death and belief reading summary

The Reading Summary is simply a synopsis of a current article from a newspaper, magazine, or Internet source that relates to one of the religions we’ve studied this semester and that you’ve found very interesting.  The article cannot be more than 2 months old.

These are the criteria for the paper:

  1. Typed, double-spaced, 12-font
  2. At least 3 full pages, not including any title page, abstract, or Works Cited page
  3. In the first paragraph of the paper, include the name of the article and the author
  4. Use APA style citations and Works Cited
  5. The Works Cited page must give all relevant information
  6. The body of the paper must include your personal thoughts and ideas on the religion discussed in the article (likes, dislikes, agreements, disagreements)
  7. Be sure and explain why you chose this religion and why you chose this article

Remember 85% of the paper must be original.  That means you cannot have more than 15% of direct quotes.  Any report that uses more than that will be penalized.

Due: Midnight, Saturday, June 20   Do not email your paper to me, submit it through Blackboard.  After you submit your paper, check your email daily; if there is a problem with the paper, I’ll email you using your UIW email address.  I usually grade your papers with 24 hours of submission.
