Section 2 Writing JournalNo unread replies.No replies.For this section, I’d like you to read and think about the following assigned readings:
– OpenStax US History CHAPTER 3 Creating New Social Orders: Colonial Societies, 1500–1700. (https://openstax.org/books/us-history/pages/3-introduction)
– Reformation Broadsheet podcast ( https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00tzmkc)
Links to these readings are in this section of the course.

After reviewing the assigned readings, address the following writing journal prompt:
“Throughout history, religion has played an important function in how societies are organized. What role did religion play in colonial societies between 1500-1700? What role does religion play in American society now? Point out some differences and similarities between how religion functions then versus now.”

Write at least two paragraphs (10 or more sentences). Chapter 3 and the Reformation Sheet podcast can help give you important background on the topic, and make sure to use in-text citations to let the reader know what you are using. It is good practice for the section exam, where in-text citations are required. Your response will be graded “Complete” for full marks, or “Incomplete” if no post is made or the post does not fulfill the requirements.
To earn a “Complete:”
– the post should be at least two paragraphs (10 or more sentences).
– the post should reference Chapter 3 and the Reformation Sheet podcast with in-text citations.
– the post should be on topic and in your words.
An “Incomplete” will be earned if it most of the above requirements are not fulfilled.
