Complete the University of Phoenix Material: Buddhism Worksheet to help you with Part 2.
Choose one of the following schools of Buddhism:
- Theravada Buddhism
- Mahayana Buddhism

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper that addresses the following:
- Summarize the history of Buddhism and the life of Buddha.
- Explain the basic teachings and moral aspects of Buddhism.
- Explain what makes the school of Buddhism you selected unique.
Use your own words. If you use a source, it must be in quotes and be listed in the bibliography. Quotes should be less than 20% of the word count. Use quotes to bolster what you have learned when researching the paper. I know that your sources likely know their stuff; but I am grading you and want to make sure you know it as well.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines. Have a title page, bibliography, double-spacing, etc. If you need help, make sure to access the Center for Writing Excellence.
Format citations and references consistent with course-level APA guidelines.
