Writing

Description

Before beginning the pre-writing, download the “Biblical Worldview Paper Instructions” document from the Assignments page in Blackboard. Read the rationale for the full paper assignment. For the pre-writing, write three 100-word paragraphs (300 words total).

Paragraph 1: Using chapters 2-3 of the Graham (2009) textbook Teaching Redemptively, write a 100-word paragraph relating the key elements of a biblical worldview. For this paragraph, focus strictly on discussing the core tenets of a biblical worldview. Avoid references to education in this paragraph. Although you may or may not embrace the ideas you are writing about, present them objectively as you would in a report about what others believe. The intent of this paragraph is not for it to be a personal position paper or a critique of ideas. Later in the term, you will have an opportunity to write your own personal philosophy paper, but this assignment is not it. Therefore, avoid first-person pronouns.

Paragraph 2: For this 100-word paragraph, use at least one reference of your choice. You may use the Graham textbook, a source from the Blackboard “Biblical Worldview Paper Instructions,” or another source of your choosing. The first paragraph was a report on the main tenets of a biblical worldview. This second paragraph will be an objective statement on the topic of Christian philosophy of education. In this paragraph, convey a basic understanding of key elements of an educational philosophy that is based distinctively on a perspective drawn from Judeo-Christian scriptures. Address issues of meaning, purpose, and values. Do not discuss the practical application to the instructional process; that will come in the third paragraph. A common error is for writers to neglect the discussion of a Christian philosophy of education by focusing too much on the implications for educational practice, which will be addressed in the third paragraph.

Paragraph 3: For this 100-word paragraph, use at least one reference of your choice. You may use the Graham textbook, a source from the Blackboard “Biblical Worldview Paper Instructions,” or another source of your choosing. In this third paragraph, you will practically apply the ideas from your two previous paragraphs as you write about the implications for educational practice. Discuss the implications of a biblical worldview and Christian philosophy for practical application to the overall field of education. As you did with the first two paragraphs, avoid first-person pronouns. In your personal “Educational Philosophy Paper” later in the term, you will have more freedom to use first-person since it will be all about your own personal beliefs.
Cite in APA format and list your references at the bottom of your post. (You will be able to see other students’ posts after you make your initial post.)

Its purpose is to carry out LU’s mission to provide an education with a solid Christian foundation and to ensure that every SOE program completer understands the implications of a biblical worldview for the field of education. While there are other assignments that require candidates to write a personal philosophy of education, that is not necessarily the intent of this particular assignment. The goal of this activity is for candidates to accomplish the following: • • • • Convey an understanding of what is meant by a biblical worldview. Support and illustrate this understanding by citing the Bible and other literature on the topic of biblical worldview. Apply principles of a biblical worldview to educational practice. Articulate key components of a Christian philosophy of education, citing from the Bible and other literature on the topic of Christian philosophy of education. Because the SOE embeds this assignment into every degree program—i.e., bachelor, master, education specialist (Ed.S.), and doctorate (Ed.D)—it is likely that candidates who earn multiple degrees from LU’s SOE will be required to complete the assignment multiple times. Especially in the Ed.S. and Ed.D. degrees, the Biblical Worldview Assignment may be required for more than one course. Candidates who are required to complete the assignment more than once may resubmit the initial assignment but are encouraged to revise as needed. For example, expectations for undergraduate and graduate writing levels are different; therefore, the composition of the paper may need to be strengthened with the repeated submission. Also, check the assignment directions and rubric to ensure that you are meeting the present course’s specific requirements. Mission of Liberty University: This assignment advances LU’s mission by promoting “the synthesis of academic knowledge and Christian worldview in order that there might be a maturing of spiritual, intellectual, social and physical value-driven behavior” and by encouraging “a commitment to the Christian life, one of personal integrity, sensitivity to the needs of others, social responsibility and active communication of the Christian faith, and, as it is lived out, a life that leads people to Jesus Christ as the Lord of the universe and their own personal Savior.” Click on these links to learn more about LU’s Mission Statement and LU’s Doctrinal Statement. Mission of LU’s School of Education: This assignment advances the School of Education’s mission, which is “to develop competent professionals with a biblical worldview for Christian, public, and private schools.” Click on this link to learn more about the SOE Conceptual Framework. Directions Write a 4-page paper in APA format that conveys your understanding of what is meant by a biblical worldview and a Christian philosophy of education. Also, discuss the implications of these principles in their application to educational practice. Page length requirement begins with the introductory paragraph and ends with the conclusion; it includes neither the title page nor the reference page. An Page 1 of 3 EDUC 604 abstract is not required. In addition to the Bible, cite a minimum of four references that represent the body of literature supporting and explaining biblical worldview and Christian philosophy of education. Include the Graham textbook as a reference. No more than 10% of the paper is to include direct quotes; therefore, you should do much more summarizing and paraphrasing than quoting. Citations are required both for direct quotes and for summarized ideas drawn from references. The format of the paper is to include the sections below with headings that follow APA format. Click on this link to view an APA Tips document with helpful hints for writing success. • • • • • • • Title Page Introduction Present a strong, clear thesis statement. The focus of this paragraph is to introduce the reader to the thesis statement. The remainder of the paper should support and illustrate the main point(s) of the thesis statement. Biblical Worldview Based upon your readings of the Bible and literature on the topic of biblical worldview, convey a basic understanding of the elements of a worldview that is based distinctively on a perspective of life drawn from Judeo-Christian scriptures. Do not focus on the field of education in this section. A common error is for writers to neglect the discussion of a biblical worldview by focusing too much on the field of education, which is to be addressed in subsequent sections of the paper. Christian Philosophy of Education Based upon your readings of the Bible and literature on the topic of Christian philosophy of education, convey a basic understanding of the elements of an educational philosophy that is based distinctively on a perspective drawn from Judeo-Christian scriptures. Address metaphysical and axiological issues. Metaphysical issues relate to questions of meaning and purpose. Axiological issues relate to questions of values. Minimize the discussion of practical application to the field of education in this section. A common error is for writers to neglect the discussion of a Christian philosophy of education by focusing too much on the implications for educational practice, which will be addressed in the subsequent section. Implications for Educational Practice Discuss the implications of a biblical worldview and Christian philosophy for practical application to the overall field of education. Ensure that you discuss these implications for the field in general, but you may also proceed to specify implications for your particular area of interest. For example, if you are preparing to serve as a content area teacher, a special education teacher, an administrator, or a school counselor, you may— after addressing implications for the overall field of education—address implications for your area of service. Conclusion An effective conclusion affirms the thesis statement and leaves the reader with a clear idea of how thoughts in the paper fit together to make a specific point. Reference Page Cite the Bible in the body of the manuscript, but—per APA—the Bible and other classical or holy scriptures are not to be listed on the reference page. List here 4 references other than the Bible. One your references is to be the Graham textbook. Click on this APA Tips Document for details.

Page 3 of 3 EDUC 604 PRE-WRITING PEER REVIEW INSTRUCTIONS Pre-Writing Submission: There are 2 pre-writing submissions in this course. (See below for the topics.) They are to be 300 words each and are portions of two papers: (1) the Biblical Worldview Paper and (2) the Educational Philosophy Paper. Each submission will be peerreviewed in discussion forums. Peer Reviews: You will reply to 2 classmate's posts with a 100-word response for each. Replies are to be in the form of a meaningful peer review. Comment on strengths of the content and the mechanical structure of the paragraph. Be specific. Also, make constructive suggestions. If a point is unclear, kindly point out how it might be made clearer. If the paragraph goes off topic, state how it does so. Research indicates that participating in peer reviews helps both the writer and the reviewer improve, so please receive the peer reviews with a teachable spirit. Pre-writing threads are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of the assigned module/week, and replies are due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of the following module/week. TOPICS PRE-WRITING 1: Biblical Worldview (Modules 2-3) Before beginning the pre-writing, download the “Biblical Worldview Paper Instructions” document from the Assignments page in Blackboard. Read the rationale for the full paper assignment. For the pre-writing, write three 100-word paragraphs (300 words total). Paragraph 1: Using chapters 2-3 of the Graham (2009) textbook Teaching Redemptively, write a 100-word paragraph relating the key elements of a biblical worldview. For this paragraph, focus strictly on discussing the core tenets of a biblical worldview. Avoid references to education in this paragraph. Although you may or may not embrace the ideas you are writing about, present them objectively as you would in a report about what others believe. The intent of this paragraph is not for it to be a personal position paper or a critique of ideas. Later in the term, you will have an opportunity to write your own personal philosophy paper, but this assignment is not it. Therefore, avoid first-person pronouns. Paragraph 2: For this 100-word paragraph, use at least one reference of your choice. You may use the Graham textbook, a source from the Blackboard “Biblical Worldview Paper Instructions,” or another source of your choosing. The first paragraph was a report on the main tenets of a biblical worldview. This second paragraph will be an objective statement on the topic of Christian philosophy of education. In this paragraph, convey a basic understanding of key elements of an educational philosophy that is based distinctively on a perspective drawn from Judeo-Christian scriptures. Address issues of meaning, purpose, and values. Do not discuss the practical application to the instructional process; that will come in the third paragraph. A common error is for writers to neglect the discussion of a Christian philosophy of education by focusing too much on the implications for educational practice, which will be addressed in the third paragraph. Paragraph 3: For this 100-word paragraph, use at least one reference of your choice. You may use the Graham textbook, a source from the Blackboard “Biblical Worldview Paper EDUC 604 Instructions,” or another source of your choosing. In this third paragraph, you will practically apply the ideas from your two previous paragraphs as you write about the implications for educational practice. Discuss the implications of a biblical worldview and Christian philosophy for practical application to the overall field of education. As you did with the first two paragraphs, avoid first-person pronouns. In your personal “Educational Philosophy Paper” later in the term, you will have more freedom to use first-person since it will be all about your own personal beliefs. Cite in APA format and list your references at the bottom of your post. (You will be able to see other students’ posts after you make your initial post.) PRE-WRITING 2: Philosophy (Modules 5-6) Before beginning this paragraph, download the “Educational Philosophy Paper Instructions” document from the Assignments page in Blackboard. Read the instructions for the full paper assignment so that you have a grasp of how these pre-writing assignments will progress. Paragraph 1: Using Gutek or Graham as a reference, write a 100-word paragraph relating your personal philosophy of schools and learning. This paragraph should focus on the “why” of education—the long-range impact you believe schools and learning should have on individuals and on society. Save the “how” of education for later. State what you personally believe. Do not feel obligated to embrace a particular philosophy. However, you are to situate your beliefs among others by citing ideas that illustrate yours or are in opposition to yours. Do not try to cover everything; just identify one or two key theories that might illustrate your own beliefs about the purpose/outcome of schools and learning. Be cautious about assigning to yourself a label that you do not fully understand. If you do not understand all that the label entails, you could unknowingly convey inconsistent ideas throughout your writing. (You may sparingly use first person pronouns but avoid over usage and redundancy. You can still make strong statements of declarative beliefs without using I, we, or you. Using third person plural helps. For example, “Teachers should,” “Parents ought to,” etc.) Paragraph 2: Apply your purpose/philosophy to the “how” of education as you write this 100-word paragraphh about instructional practice. Discuss your personal beliefs about how learners come to know truth; what causes learning to occur; what you will implement in the classroom; what pedagogical practices, instructional strategies, or methods you will tend to use most frequently; and what you hope to accomplish by using these strategies. Paragraph 3: In this 100-word paragraph, you may choose any of these options: the role of the teacher, the role of the student, teacher-student relationship, diversity, classroom management, assessment, or subject-matter philosophy. Cite your Gutek textbook and at least one other source of your choice in APA format and list your reference at the bottom of your post. (You will be able to see other students’ posts after you make your initial post.)
