in depth the doctrines associated with the Plan of Salvation.
At the end of the
course, you will receive a letter grade that I feel reflects the
you accomplished during the course. I will use three criteria to
determine your grade: (1) attitude, (2) class attendance, and (3)
through preparation for class, class participation, and adherence to
code. Things that can negatively affect my perception of attitude
displayed is sleeping during class, inappropriate use of electronic
devices. Grade for class participation is purely subjective on my part and is used in determining the final grade given in the course. 2. Class
is a crucial part of the course. It
is the policy of the Department of
Religious Education that a student must participate in a minimum of 80%
of the class periods held for a religion course. With this in mind note
the following:3. Academic
Portion of Final Grade
- Missing six class periods or more will result in not receiving credit for the course.
- School excused absences
(such as a class for a field trip, etc.) are an exception to this
policy. The student, however, must present the teacher with a
school excused form as evidence of the excused absence. The
student who misses a class because of a school excused absence is still
responsible for both assignments due and material discuss during the
- MIssing a class because of illness is not an excused absence. So be careful with your health.
IN-DEPTH STUDY OF THE PLAN
1. FINAL: ESSAY ON THE
PLAN OF SALVATION (200
the final, the student will produce
two-page essay concerning the plan of salvation that reflects the
teachings found in the course material and class discussions. HOWEVER,
YOU MAYNOT USE ANY SOURCES WHEN ACTUALLY WRITING ESSAY. It is to
be written entirely from the knowledge you have in your head.
Writing must be both comprehensive and concise. In this essay,
you should "connect the dotes" between the various doctrines making up
the plan of salvation. You will write this essay in any two hour
block after the last day of classes.
WRITE-UPS (up to 20 pts each)
To help prepare the student for the essay,
chapters from the Doctrines of the
Student Manual, True to the
Fath and Selected Quotes, and other sources will be
studied during the course. In the Daily Reading Schedule found on the course page, the assigned chapters from the Doctrines of the Gospel textbook and other documents that will be discussed
during each class
period can be found.
In the textbook ntoice that each chapter is about a different doctrine. The chapter begins with an Introduction followed by a Doctrinal Outline. Under the Doctrinal Outline
are a number of points (each noted with a letter from the alphabet
with subpoints noted with a number), each with scriptural references,
regarding the doctrine discussed in the chapter. Following the Doctrinal Outline is a section called Supporting Statements with general authority teachings regarding the same points found in the Doctrinal Outline.
You are to study the scriptures and general authority statements
regarding each point. (You will probably not be able to look up all
scriptural references under each point but read at least one reference
found in each subpoint [noted with a number] of each point.)
For each assignment a
write-up is to be produced that meets the following criteria:
- Summarize and discuss each point of the doctrine found in the chapter or other assigned reading.
