Im studying for my History class and dont understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?
Please organize your work according to the numbered sections below, synthesizing your knowledge around a well chosen passage. Due dates of first drafts of parts this assignment have specific, different due dates. The final draft of the whole assignment (all 4 sections) is due Monday, May 7, by 11:55 p.m. (I have room for a few extensions, for those who sign up for one during the last week of classes).
Note: for those who make/attend an appointment with me to help you identify a good passage and plan for this project, before (or on) April 11 will earn 1 bonus point, added to the assignment total.
1. Broad Topic and Passage:
Include book, chapter, verses
Comment why you picked it (or what you find interesting about it).
2. Context: Gospel Author/Audience, Historical, Literary
Rubric – show off what you know about your Gospel authors themes, or differences between Gospels.
to compare your passage to corresponding passages. (can look up online here: http://www.bible-researcher.com/parallels.html#sect4
OR, if passage is from Mark or John, use your Mark Gospel Outline or Johns Gospel outline to discuss how your passage fits your gospel. Outlines for Matthew and Luke are also posted.
3. Historical Probability:
Rubric: 10=clearly discusses, explains and correctly applies at least 2 criteria to the passage.
to discuss whether or not your passage is historically probable.
Apply at least 2 of Meiers criteria to the passage
You can review Meiers criteria using:
4. Central Theological Issues:
Briefly explain the theological issues associated with your passage. Your goal is to demonstrate how well you know this material from the class, and how well you can apply it to your passage. For example:
Rubric: 10=You showcased your understanding of your Rausch chapter, especially main themes and distinctions, and thoughtfully connected your passage to material discussed by Rausch. You found a useful way to explore your passage through the keyword search function.
5. Modern Theological Issues:
10=Full understanding of a chapter of Johnson (and connected texts, such as views from other religions, or views from one of the theatrical productions we discussed). Able to address main themes, able to quote text in connection to passage.
Connect your passage to 1 of the chapters from Consider Jesus. (Typically chapter 6, 7, 8, or 9, but chapters 2 and 3 are possible choices too).
Show off your knowledge of that chapter (and perhaps also the example used to illustrate it – like one of the film clips, or some of the discussions of Jesus from different religious perspectives).
(There is no excuse for sloppiness here, even if you didnt buy the book, because all the slides are on Moodle).
6. Your audience:
Be creative, imagine you are talking to a specific audience about your passage. Describe their specific interests and how you would connect your passage to these interests (for example, if your passage was Jesus teaching on divorce and you had to talk to children of divorced parents, what would you say?)
7. Research and prepare to write:
Demonstrate you can find, read, and understand 3 scholarly articles about your passage. (Try your passage reference first, e.g. Mark 5:1-20)
Construct your own argument (in bullet point form) using good evidence (quotes) from the article.
*Reminder: You will also be asked to present, as a short in class assignment (not as part of the final project grade) a 2 minute summary on the most interesting ideas you learned from your research (most will be scheduled in class on May 1, a few possibly for those with class on May 3).
Short Version Rubric for use in Moodle Grading (50% for first questions, 50% for research paper)
(____sources, ______thesis and intro, ____article arguments, ______6 pieces evidence)
How to Find Scholarly Sources: (2 Methods)
Method 1: Articles Online:Go to the librarys WebPage (under MyKings then Resources). Click on find articles and then Ebsco Host Databases. Select both the ATLA Catholic and ATLA Religion Databases. Use keywords to search (this takes a few tries). You can limit your search (down the left side) to linked full text (this means you can get the electronic article with the citation) and to peer-reviewed. (I recommend email the articles to yourself, then you have a record of the article, the ability to forward to me, to print and reprint, etc.). This method is great that it can be done from home, but it can be harder to sort through these articles to find a good one. For the option below, you have to go to the library, but it is pretty easy to get a source.
It can take a while to find good keywords to produce a useful search. You might try having Jesus on one line and the other element of your topic in another search field (e.g. lepers or Magdalene). You have to experiment with different versions of the word, or you might have to try naming topics more specifically (to narrow down your results) or more generally, to get any results at all.
Method 2: Scholarly Commentaries (and Bible Dictionary)ACUTAL BOOKS!!!
All of the following commentaries are in the Kings College Library (mostly in the Reference Collection, 1st floor). Commentaries in the Reference collection cannot be removed from the library. This makes them easy to find and always available, you can simply photocopy the few pages that you need. You can also find good individual commentaries in the basement, look them up online, or browse the shelves around call number 220.7. Do not use anything older than 1960. I find the longer the commentary you can get on a passage, the better your chances of doing well on the paper (because you easily find enough material).
Englewood Cliffs, NJ : Prentice-Hall, 1990. Call #: 220.7 B814J1 Reference Collection – 1st Floor
Collegeville, Minn. : Liturgical Press, 1989. Call #: 220.7 C686C Reference Collection – 1st Floor
New York : Oxford University Press, 2001. Call #: 220.7 Ox2O Reference Collection – 1st Floor
Do NOT use Matthew Henrys Devotional Commentary (found on websites like BibleGateway. I only want scholarly sources, not devotional ones).
