This page provides links to the assignments for the course.
Assignments and dates are tentative and may be adjusted depending on the progress of the class.
The weekly reports will usually consist of 2 parts :
A : Your 6 "Key Verses" for the week. There are no "right" or "wrong" verses - just write out the verses which seemed most meaningful to you. This will show me that you have read, and hopefully thought about, the readings.
B : 20 questions on the assigned readings for the week. These will be mainly from the Old Testament, but occasionally there will be some from the text-book or other material - these will be indicated by "according to the text-book" or some similar phrase.
I know this will appear at first to be rather a large amount of reading and writing. However, if I were conducting this as a Lecture-based Course, there would be a requirement to learn set passages of material each week, and a weekly quiz to check students' progress, so the Web-based Course is probably easier in this respect.
NOTE : there are 6 Essays due at various times during the semester, in addition to the weekly Reports.
Remember to check your work with Turnitin before sending it to me.
