Discussion 3 with peer respone as well | Humanities

You have recently learned/reviewed about the 3 Monothestic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). Addtionally, you learned/reviewed about the Byzantine Empire.  Choose a topic from the list below and follow steps 1 and 2 described underneath.Topic A: After going over some information about the Byzantine Empire in class and watching the video shared in this folder,  either summarize what you learned or discuss an aspect of their history that is of interest to you (You may discuss other topics related to the Byzantine Empire not covered in the lecture or video, in that case cite your work). Topic B: Compare and contrast the 3 monotheistic religions studied in class or choose a topic of interest (related to any of the religions studied) and discuss it. 

  1. Main Post: Write a minimum of 250 words discussion about Topics A or B. (Part A of the assignment- 7 points)
  2. Peer Response: Read and respond to at least 1 other classmate (min. 125 words). (Part B- 3 points) 

Total points possible: 10 points  Note: The peer response must contain relevant content as well. Avoid repeating (even in different words) what you wrote about in your main discussion, as part of the response to the classmate. Whether you agree or disagree with your peer’s discussion, add new content, new information to your peer’s discussion.  Add to the discussion.  Meaning, only an “I agree with you” or “Interesting findings” kind of comments do not fulfill the peer responses’ requirements.  Your reaction to a peer’s discussion must contain relevant content taken from the material learned this week or external sources.  Citations: If you use other resources (books, articles), cite them using APA Format. When you cite a sentence/paragraph, it shows that it is not your opinion, but that of a scholar or someone who has studied the subject. That validates your stance on the subject. While opinions are welcome, make facts your main focus as you create your discussion, and react to others’ responses. For information about citation/references, see the following site:   https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/in_text_citations_the_basics.htmlRemember, there are two parts to a citation, the in-text citation and the reference list at the end of the writing.
