Choose any two terms from your study guide list of terms (hand-out or google.doc)  Take advantage of this opportunity to challenge yourself and make a complex connection.  Define each term then explain the connection between them using the format we practiced in class.  See my example below.

Example Response:
Terms:  Buddha and Kami
a.  Buddha: Buddha was the founder of Buddhism.  He renounced wealth, possessions and desires to end suffering. After attaining enlightenment, Buddha  taught and professed his ideas about life and suffering in his dharma. 
b.  Kami:  Shintoism, a religion in ancient Japan, believes that spirits in nature or kamis inhibit the natural world.
d.  Connection:  The Buddha and the Kami are connected because when Buddhism, the religion founded by Buddha, arrived in Japan, the kami, or spirits in nature, took on a human form that resembled the Buddha.
