Sources
Since everything you need to write a good paper is included in this course, you are not asked to do any additional research. However, for each religion, you must cite three (3) different types of sources with which you have already engaged to back up your major points:
Type 1: Prothero readings
Type 2: My Zoom lectures and/or overview videos
Type 3: Primary texts
For primary sources, you must review the Primary Source Reading page for each religion and follow the citation format specified under Citation Guideline. Be sure to consistently and properly cite your sources and include exact pages, paragraphs, chapter and verses, and/or time signatures. Failure to include all three types of sources and/or to cite the sources properly will lower your grade.
More on Citation Format: In-Text (=in the main body)
If you draw on or cite from the textbook, simply cite like this:
Prothero observes, “All humans—male and female, young and old, Asian and American, straight and queer, black and white and brown—tell and retell stories.” (p.5)
Alternately: “All humans—male and female, young and old, Asian and American, straight and queer, black and white and brown—tell and retell stories.” (Prothero, p.5)
For videos/podcasts, cite the speaker (if known), title and the exact time reference like this:
“The story of Christianity begins about 2,000 years ago” (“Christianity: The Good News,” 02:44).
“The covenant is first and foremost a gift from God” (Akiyama, “Covenant and the Torah,” 05:25).
OR: According to Akiyama, “The covenant is first and foremost a gift from God” (“Covenant and the Torah,” 05:25).
“He looks into his own mind, and into his own experience” (Prothero, “Suffering,” 01:10).
OR: According to Prothero, “He looks into his own mind, and into his own experience” (“Suffering,” 01:10).
