What role does karma play in Buddhism? Who does it affect, and how does it affect them in this life, the afterlife, and the next life?
There will be a final paper of approximately 2000 words (about 6-8 pages), double spaced pages. You should provide at least six peer reviewed sources to help substantiate points made throughout you essays. Just as with the Mini Essays, you must use Chicago Style for references. At the beginning of your essay, please write out fully which prompt you will be writing about, as sometimes it is not always clear for me as a reader.
Your essays will be graded on the following criteria:
a) Evidence that the factual material called for in the question is presented and documented
b) Coherence of the essay in organization and structure
c) Ability to engage critically and analytically with the topic
d) Evidence of creative thinking
e) Correct annotation of sources and presentation of bibliography
f) Correct spelling, punctuation and grammar
There are some great resources out there to help you find appropriate peer reviewed source material. One place to find some good journal articles is JSTOR (www.jstor.org). You should have free access to these articles through your SDSU account. Of course, there is also the SDSU library, which contains plenty of books, journal, etc. to help you with this task as well
These are reference thatâ€™s connect with the questions
