World Religion Faire Preparation

Write a blog post responding to a minimum of two of the questions you might get asked at Exhibitions listed below:

  • Why do world religions matter?
  • What should you do (be specific) if someone contradicts or argues with you?
  • What if someone expresses blatant prejudice or hatefulness toward a faith?
  • What if someone is not engaged in your presentation or walks away during your presentation? Or even walks right past your booth?
  • What if someone is overly engaged in your presentation? (wants to debate, etc.)

    Respond (in a professional academic manner) to at least three other people’s blog posts

Costa Rica Fundraising!

The CIS Costa Rica trip is coming up this spring for seniors. Juniors, you will have the chance to go on your international trip (to a destination of your choice!) in 2017. The time to start planning and fundraising, for both Juniors AND Seniors, is NOW!
___________________________________________________________________________
In the blog below, answer one of these questions:
1. What have you already done to begin fundraising? Has it been successful? Explain to others how they can find similar success!
2. What ideas do you have for innovative and lucrative fundraisers? Share ONE idea and explain how you can help make it happen.
After answering one question, read through other ideas. Respond to two other students who have ideas you like. What can you do to help? Would you like to work on a team with them to plan an event or fundraiser? What would that look like?
