Due: Friday, August 28 by 11:59 p.m. (submit an electronic version of your response, as either a PDF or a Word document, on Blackboard) Format: no more than 1 page, single-spaced,
12 point Times New Roman font, 1-inch margins (papers over one page will not be graded); header must include: your name, the date, the course code Worth: 2% of final grade Answer the following question: Siddartha Gautama, the Buddha, had to leave home to reach enlightenment.
Do you think it’s necessary for a person to leave home to transform their perspective and grow? Explain briefly why or why not. Students are required to use gender-neutral language. For instance, use “human” and “humankind” instead of “man” and “mankind,” and, when appropriate, “she” over “he.”
The purpose of these Reflection Responses is to encourage students to start thinking independently thought, to stay involved with the course, and to keep on top of the readings.
Responses will be graded as Pass or Fail. A passing grade will show independent thought, that the student has read the text, and that they have applied themself. Incomplete and incoherent responses will fail. A pass is worth 2% of the student’s final grade; a fail, 0%.
