site visit report

Site Visit Report Assignment Writing Suggestions 3-page written report of your site visit. Double-spaced. You don’t need endnotes or a bibliography for this one. Please write about a site visit you experienced during this quarter, not a temple you visited last summer in Asia, etc. What should you write about? Here are a few writing prompts to get you going: What were your expectations going in to this site? How were those expectations met or not? What surprised you? If you visited a temple, what sort of practices did you encounter? What sort of images, sounds, feelings, moods, etc. did you encounter? What was your personal reaction to the religious phenomena you encountered during your visit? What was it like to interact with people in the community, people of faith within said tradition? How did your experience relate to the things you have studied in class (ie. lectures/films/readings/section)? What was it like to interact with a modern living Asian religious tradition/community? How does this relate to the course material? These are just suggestions to get the writing process flowing. You needn’t feel bound by them at all. The function of this assignment is primarily for you to reflect on your own experience engaging with Asian religious tradition(s). Feel free to express that experience in any way you like (within 3-pages). Lastly, it is recommended that you call or check its website to make sure to maximize your experience (observe ritual, interview people, etc.).
