Religion 122 – Alma 30 – Moroni

Fall 2005

Instructor: Gary J. Chelson Jr.   Phone: 624-7382 / chelsong@byui.edu

 

Class Objective: It is my great desire that all of us involved in this class will strengthen our personal testimony that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, translated from gold plates, by the prophet Joseph Smith. Also, that we will come to better understand the beautiful, plain and simple teachings that are contained therein.  Finally I hope that we will have a greater desire to apply the teachings of this wonderful book in our lives.

 

Testing: There will be two tests that will account for 30% of your grade. Both will be take home tests. The tests will involve; memorization, matching and short essay questions.

 

Reading and Attendance: Each class period you will mark the roll for reading (10), attendance (10), being in class for the full time (5), scriptures in class (5) and marking your scriptures (5) for a total of (35) points per week. These points will account for 50 percent of your grade.

 

Daily Reading: There are 99 days in our semester. There will be two point deducted for each day that you do not read at least one chapter a day. These points will account for 20% of your grade.
