ART OF CONTEMPLATION

Common Assignment Guidelines 2014



ART OF CONTEMPLATION (VIRTUES & VALUES – LAS 461 01)



These are the guidelines for the 2014 common text assignment:


· The essay should address at least one of the guiding questions for this seminar:



1. What did Aristotle mean by ‘contemplation’ and ‘the contemplative life’?

2. How did Aristotle reconcile the requirements of the contemplative life with the demands of action (civic life)?

3. What is ‘meditation’ and how does it relate to ‘contemplation’?

4. What is the Christian attitude toward contemplation and how does it compare to Aristotle’s?

5. What do meditation, contemplation, and the contemplative life offer women and men in today’s world?



· The assignment must draw in some way on the common text. It is not necessary to use particular quotations, but:

· The essay should show the use of evidence in support of particular claims.

· Recommended length for the paper 1250-1500 words (= 5 – 7 pages, double-spaced, 12 point or the equivalent thereof).

· The paper will be due on or preferably before the last class of the term, April 24.

· The essay will be graded and that the grade will figure in the final grade for the course (approximately 15%).


Your essay’s final grade (15 pts.) will be determined by the following criteria: [5 pts. each criteria]

1) your ability to organize, develop, and support your original argument by integrating evidence from various texts and your own experiences, as well as negotiating (i.e., acknowledging, accommodating, or refuting) opposing views/counter argument—consider, in other words, “diverse responses” to the question you are addressing (5 pts.);

2) your ability to carefully read, comprehend, and evaluate the common text (5 pts.);

3) your ability to write clearly, correctly, and logically while citing sources properly (5 pts.).



Remember to attach a Works Cited page.



Individual Assignment Grading Scale:



15 = A; 14 = A-; 13 = B+; 12 = B; 11 = B-; 10 = C+; 9 = C; 8 = C-; 7 = D; 6-0 = F



· PLEASE NOTE: Students should turn in two copies of their essay. I will keep one copy to be graded and returned to the students (if they so wish). The other will be retained for (anonymous) assessment. For the anonymous COPY, please omit your name!

·



· Do your best work!

Social Norm Experiment

2. Social Norm Experiment

Some sociology can be fun! For this activity you will be required to perform a social experiment outside of the classroom. Basically you will be breaking a social norm. Please do not do anything that would put you in any kind of danger. If you are unsure as to whether your idea will break a social norm or not please see me to discuss. Though you may think this a joke, some people may not react as you anticipated. Be careful.


You will be required to write a reflection paper on this experiment. I want to know what you did, what reactions you thought you might elicit. How you felt breaking the social norm. What reactions you did in fact get. You will need to try the experiment at least a couple of times to get a sense of other's reactions. Apply sociological concepts that we have discussed in class to your experiment to help explain your reactions and those of others to your violation of a social norm. You will need to provide two sources to help you write this paper. They may not be your textbook. These are used to back up your observations with the research. This paper should be about 1,000 words long.
