Grade 10 Religion I.S.U.
Students are to select one of the five models presented by Richard Niebuhr in Christ and
Culture and write a 1000 word essay arguing why their model fits into a time period of their
choice during the 2000 year span of Christianity’s existence. In order to properly defend their
thesis—that a given model applies to a chosen time period—students will need to provide in
their body an in-depth look at what constitutes culture, and an understanding of what was
going on in their chosen time period. Ultimately, the thesis should prove why the chosen
cultural model has been appropriately applied to the chosen time period.
