While this is an independent study, students will be required to attend one online session

with peers for an online discussion and an introduction to the project.

This online session will take place on ZOOM.

An outline of online etiquette will be shared with all course participants prior to that session.

This integrated project will address all ERC competencies: 

Reflects on Ethical Questions

Demonstrates an Understanding of the Phenomenon of Religion

Students will also be required to present their projects to the instructor at the end of the course.

A schedule of appointments will be created at a later date.

All students must submit their topic selections to the instructor for approval by July 8, 2021.

All final work must be submitted by July 16, 2021 by 4:00 p.m.

Part 1:

In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.

Part 2:

A motivational quote has the power to awaken happiness and to brighten your day. It is a good idea to read a few in the morning, after waking up, and again, before your leave for work. Often, the words you read stay with you and affect how you think, act and react, for a long time after reading them.

A good quote can be the heart of a compelling article. Good quotes help to tell a story and enhance the credibility of a press release, news story or speech. Words that are crafted well can leave a lasting impact on the world.

Another reason we love inspirational quotes is that they affirm what we already know (or think we know) about ourselves.
