Masters and Missionaries
  • Master: having or showing very great skill or proficiency
  • Missionary: a person sent on a religious mission, normally to foreign territory
  • In this activity students will be split into groups where they will become MASTERS of specific monotheistic religions, through reading and analyzing a variety of primary and secondary sources.
  • Students will then become MISSIONARIES and spread the “word” or teachings of their specific religions to others and decided on consequences for actions based on these beliefs.

    • Why might Confucianism appeal to people in China?
      • I think that Confucianism might appeal to people in China because it was a way of living that made sense that would improve their personal lives. They had structured dynasties for their government so their society was organized. People probably weren’t so afraid of what happened in the afterlife as they may have been in other eastern religions. Rather, those who study Confucianism were concerned with their actions on Earth and making their own lives and the world more peaceful and harmonious.
