Site Visit-Final Draft Essay Instructions
For this essay, you will need to visit a religious site from a religious tradition that is not your own and write a report on it. This paper must have a thesis, as per the Gordon rule requirement. Remember, you should be writing this with the suggested revisions. Your final paper must be at least 1500 words and not more than 2000. Make sure your thesis is clear and well supported. Make sure the paper is double spaced. I want to be able to see how you are developing your ideas and how you are supporting your thesis. REMEMBER: BE PITHY. DON’T WRITE FILLER YOU’RE IN COLLEGE.
You need to submit a pic of yourself at the site to receive credit for this assignment.
The paper should begin with your first paragraph introducing the religious tradition you chose, and the site you visited. Be specific about the tradition by specifying both the religion and the sect or branch you have visited. Your first paragraph must end with your thesis. A thesis is an argument or a statement that you will prove throughout your essay. This essay’s thesis is what the central idea/principle of the religious tradition you visited was, and how it was explained/valued during your site visit. This is the spine of your paper, so make sure you are both academic and contextual.
I’ll give you an example so you’re not lost. Let’s say you went to the Holy Temple of Cafecito, in Westchester. From your research, and conversations with congregants you know that this religious tradition’s central idea or principle is that Cafecito is supreme over the cosmos. You go and you see that they begin the service burning old Cafecito, making new Cafecito, you listen to the lecture the Cafecito priest gives, and his main point is about the greatness of Cafecito, then you go up and dip bread in Cafecito-this causes everyone to cry tears of joy and get hyper. The service ends, you look around and you’re in a percolator shaped room/building. You ask about what people who practice this religion do during the week, someone tells you ‘discuss Cafecito.’ Clearly the central principle or idea of this religious tradition is about the supremacy and greatness of Cafecito. Your thesis should state that, and the following sentence should explain how you will support that idea.
A good thesis would be, “This paper will argue that the central idea of the Holy Temple of Cafecito is the supremacy, greatness, and holiness of Cafecito.” The next sentence should explain how you will show that through the paper in light of your research and experience. “This paper will argue this by first explaining what the tradition’s fundamental beliefs about Cafecito are, then, the paper will describe the centrality of Cafecito to the liturgy and aesthetic of their gatherings, finally, this paper will describe how Cafecito impacts the day to day lives of the congregants.” You must have at least 3 body points, just like my example did.
The body of the paper will then support your thesis following the track you laid out in the final sentence of the first paragraph. Remember, you are to be academic about this so there is no space for your opinions. Save your opinions for our class discussion. Describe the religious tradition as they’d describe themselves to the best of your abilities. Support your thesis with every paragraph in the body of your essay. Base your ideas in written research and remember to cite anything you pull out of a book, a video, or an interview using Chicago style footnotes. You must have at least 5 citations in your body, 4 of which must come from scholarly sources. Do not use long quotations to boost wordcount.
The paper must have a conclusion paragraph that sums up everything you wrote. Restate your thesis, and how you’ve proven it throughout the paper. Take a couple of sentences to discuss further research that could be done at your selected religious site to finish the paper. List your references in a bibliography on a final page in alphabetical order.
