Earlier in the week, you were asked to answer questions on Perusall and the disc

Earlier in the week, you were asked to answer questions on Perusall and the discussion threads about the readings and resources. This exercise asks you to re-consider how you might answer these questions after our discussions. I am not looking for corrections in this exercise but I am trying to see how you are working through the process of reflective valuing and thinking. This also means that if we did not directly discuss the questions you answered in the Class Prep assignments, you should write about how you think we would have talked about those questions based on what you absorbed from the discussions this week.
Your work this week will be comprised of four paragraphs. You do not need to write these paragraphs as one unified essay. Please note which resource you are addressing at the top of each paragraph.
Paragraph 1 for the “Buddhism’s Boundaries” resources:
Think back to your response to one of the three discussion questions that you were asked to think about in Part One of this assignment.
How has your answer changed after watching the Jeong Kwon episode of Chef’s Table? I am presuming that by observing some Buddhist practices in the video, you have additional thoughts.
Write out a response in one paragraph (about 80 words).
Paragraph 2 for “Which ‘God of Abraham’?” readings from Genesis:
Return to any post (answer to Reg’s question or your own annotation) you submitted in the discussion for this assignment and re-examine your answer.
Think about how would you respond now that we’ve spent time in class discussing the text.
Would you answer differently or would you answer the same? What specifically from the class discussions helped you reach this analysis of your answer?
Write your responses to the above questions in one paragraph (about 80 words).
Paragraph 3 for the “Religion as Boundary and Loyalty” readings.
Return to your first post from this assignment and re-examine your answer.
Think about how would you answer that question now that we’ve spent time in class discussing the text.
Would you answer differently or would you answer the same? What specifically from the class discussions helped you reach this analysis of your answer?
Write your responses to the above questions in one paragraph (about 80 words).
Paragraph 4 for the three weeks overall:
In a complete thought, write down how your understanding of social boundaries and identities were affected by studying Buddhism and Judaism.
One way to think of this may be, “What from this week made you re-consider how religious practice plays a role in building and maintaining a community identity?”
This does not have to be a certain conclusion that you reached. It can simply be something that disrupted your certainty or something that raised a question for you and, as a result, your horizon of understanding was expanded.
If there is nothing that did that this, write a complete thought about how one thing from the class contributed to affirming your preconceived notions this week. (This option isn’t to restate what you already knew but to demonstrate how class this week affirmed what you already understood.)
This should be in a paragraph (about 80 words).
