Teacher Instructions: 

The cultural ethnography project is designed to help you explore an otherwise unfamiliar aspect of religious belief and practice. The purpose of this assignment is to learn, through personal experience and research, about a different faith tradition. There are four components to this project: attendance, research, a reviewed rough draft, and a final paper. You 

are to attend a formal gathering of a faith tradition different from your own and provide an ethnographic account of your experience. How you define different is up to you, as long as the denominational affiliation is distinct. For example, if 
you consider yourself a Baptist, you should not attend a different Baptist church from the one you currently attend. 
Consider all aspects of the experience: the architecture, the atmosphere, the music (or lack thereof), the attendees, etc. Consider developing some questions to discuss with a leader, though written sources are best. The paper should 
also provide a brief description of the tradition evidencing research from your class readings and at least one other 
source not from the internet. The description should delineate the movement from other faith traditions and consider 
distinctions of the gathering you attend. 
My notes:
You don’t have to actually attend a religious event, just write as if you did of course. You may use any religion that you 
find the easiest to write about. I also attached a document with some tips the professor included. Thank you.
