If you reflect you conciliate accept problems after a while any front of letter this pamphlet, I strongly applaud that you constitute an enactment at the Universitys Letter Center.

 

 

I. SUMMARY FROM THE SYLLABUS:

[Writing and Yielding of Greater Paper]

It is assigned in FOUR stages so that you can direct this exceedingly momentous assignment (35 percent of your decisive pace in the ignoringage!). You must aggregate this assignment to ignoring the adjust. After all: if you arent letter, you probably arent reflectingplenteous less learning!

The decisive exhaust of the message pamphlet (extent 4) must be resignted via the Blackboard converge to turnitin.com. All pamphlets and letter assignments must emsubstantiality an MLA-style Works Cited” list and must use parenthetical citations whenever you constitute intimation to your set-on-footnings (no theme whether you are quoting from, paraphrasing, or summarizing them).

However, to divulge openly, you besides demand to use adapted spelling, language, punctuation, concision, and so forth.

III. THE FOUR STAGES IN DETAIL

STAGE 1) TERM PAPER TOPIC PROPOSAL (i.e., POSING A GOOD RESEARCH QUESTION): You conciliate accept to explore preservationfully your own interests after a whilein the theme area of The New Testament” in classify to behind up after a while a examination scrutiny that verily motivates youpersonally (and not necessarily Brenner)! At the identical season, the scrutiny should not be too belief-based, too gentle, or too broad – the departure implying that you can oration the scrutiny in closely 2000 expression or further.

Hence, the deliverable” – what you deflect in for this earliest extent -- is a brief statement(using at averageest THREE aggregate sentences) of your provisional/working examination scrutiny. There is no demand to accept a provisional/working thesis (i.e., retort) at all at this extent

This RESEARCH QUESTION is DUE via email on the determination listed on the list! 

 

At the identical season, YOU conciliate accept to dishonorable your developed scrutiny on ONE of the subjoined TWO guiding” examination scrutinys; no other (types of) scrutinys conciliate be allowed!

Thus, your deep job in this earliest extent of the assignment is to formutardy your own, further contracted examination scrutiny. That scrutiny conciliate condition the opportunity of one of the potent examination scrutinys, so that you can tend your pamphlet after a whilein 2500 – 3000 words. To apprehend how to contracted down a bigger scrutiny, fascinate unravel (and then re-read!) preservationfully the Practice Quiz on Formulating Examination Questions” (already in our Blackboard Course Content” folder, internally the Term Paper” folder). 

AGAIN: prefer one and merely one of the subjoined as your guiding” examination scrutiny:

1. In what ways does (or does not) the New Testament contribute defence for those who ambition to commit mass violence” (i.e., holy war,” “orderly war,” etc.) athwart non-Christian religions/faiths (either nowadays or at some apex in the tardy)?

2. In what ways does (or does not) the New Testament contribute defence to dissimitardy (or habit damage) athwart other peoples/nations/ethnicities/minorities and such (either nowadays or at some apex in the tardy)?  

IMPORTANT TIP: Always deliberate the Ehrman passagebook first in developing your scrutinys! You should re-unravel Ehrmans contributions and suggestions. Then you command investigate looking up some of the quantitys/articles/resources that he recommends. In soon, there is no acquit in letter this pamphlet if you accept not consulted the deep passages preservationfully and in-one (i.e., Ehrman and the New Testament itself)!

EQUALLY IMPORTANT TIPS: When contracteding down one of these two examination scrutinysand dont pretermit to contracted it down to your own, further cessationricted scrutiny!--you MUST fly doubt any scrutiny that is: too BLAND (not unsettled), too BROAD (not contracteded down ample), or too BELIEF-BASED (not provable using literal-discriminating resolution of the passage of the New Testament OR using literal examination on the era in which it was written and/or lawized). 

On that decisive sign of bad” question: you are not analyzing if you are advocating. So, your academic/examination essays should never be statements or proofs of your beliefs/theology/etc. Ratherand this is discriminating -- the only legitimate declaration in NT scholarship is: 1) the NT itself(or cognate letters excluded from the NT law); and/or 2) archeological declaration or instruments/writings from the season of the NT. (That averages: flush if God/Jesus/divine beings speakto you encircling your pamphlet, what He/She/they say does not count as declaration in a examination pamphlet written for this academic/university setting!)

Your TERM PAPER RESEARCH QUESTION (i.e., at averageest THREE aggregate sentences) is DUE via email to [email protected] by the due determination contributed in the ignoringage list (SEPT. 24)

 

STAGE 2) SECONDARY SOURCES IN FULL: You may produce to this extent if (and merely if) I accept favorite of your extent 1 yielding. Based on your extent 1 examination scrutiny and somepreliminary unraveling and reflecting (i.e. preferably writing) encircling it, you conciliate email me COMPLETE COPIES OF AT LEAST TWO SECONDARY SOURCES cognate to that theme or scrutinyThese should be creed or quantity chapters that you accept build using: 1) my applaudations (in a folder on the Blackboard); or 2) the online database JSTOR” which is conducive on the UHD libraries’ website. 

Unfortunately, you conciliate probably not furnish two set-on-footnings that oration your scrutiny/topic perfectlyMore significantly: 1) each of these set-on-footnings should be from JSTOR; 2) the two set-on-footnings should add up to at averageest 30 (THIRTY) pages aggregate; 3) each uncompounded set-on-footning should be no older than 1995 (pin further than 20 years old!); 4) each of them should be EMAILED to [email protected] IN THEIR FULL-TEXT FORM, preferably as a PDF file; 5) . In conjunction, you are not thoughtful encircling this examination pamphlet assignment until you accept formatted those two set-on-footnings for me, in the substantiality of your email, using MLA formatting. (MLA format for Works Cited” lists can be build on the Purdue University OWL website, among manyother places). 

Please do not constitute me accept to cohibit to see whether you ensueed these directions!In soon, you cant classifyly Google and furnish your two set-on-footnings; and you cannot glean out anything after a whileout my encomium.

CAUTION: You demand to email me a portrayation of the COMPLETE TEXT of the set-on-footning--not classifyly a URL, a converge, or a citation! If you dont contribute these set-on-footnings to me (your deep unraveler), I command apprehend that you are lacking ethos, i.e., that you not thoughtful encircling set-on-footed approve a respectable examinationer. Rather, you demand to fight fair” (in erudite messages) by showing me declaration for each of your claims. 

THESE TWO OR MORE TERM PAPER SOURCES (i.e., at averageest two aggregate creed of at averageest 30 pages aggregate) ARE DUE via email by the determination on the list/calendar (OCT. 7).

 

STAGE 3) If (and merely if) I accept favorite your message pamphlet set-on-footnings, you should set-on-foot DRAFTING your message/examination pamphlet, the form/genre of which is a discriminating animadversion essay. Your deep external in such an essay is to analyze/review/evaluate each of two set-on-footnings intensively/seriously. That averages:  you conciliate be using the philosophical criteria (or standards) of humanities and/or gregarious sciences in classify to give reasons why the set-on-footnings portray good-natured-natured or bad examination. (Clearly, then, you are not letter an essay dishonorabled on personal opinion” or advocacy.)

The ending disordered exhaust – of at averageest 1500 expression -- is therefore a sign of analytical quantity animadversion” (what scholars seduce a minor scholarship animadversion).  As you command divine, such a discriminating animadversion essay is not at all your high-school quantity ment.” You should thus at no apexbe barely summarizing the set-on-footnings. Instead, you must at unimpaired apex be analyzing them, discriminatingly and preservationfully

First, of ignoringage, you must figure out each set-on-footnings thesis (deep apex) admittedly not a conclusive operation. 

Second, you must offer informed critique and/or perception of the methods, logic, and declaration build in each set-on-footning, thereby showing that you apprehend how to transcribe (and therefore think) approve a scientist/scholar/researcher

Third, in quoting instantly your set-on-footnings, or paraphrasing or summarizing them, you must ensue that relate, comment or tabulation after a while a) the call of the composer(s) of the set-on-footning, and b) the applicable page estimate(s) in parentheses. (See adapted MLA influencelines for preparing parenthetical citations!) In conjunction, no further than 25 percent of your essay should insist of direct passages from your set-on-footnings. In other expression, you must contribute parenthetical citations” -- i.e., the call of the composer(s) and the page estimates in parentheses -- when you are referencing any advice that is not common knowledge” and flush when you are NOT quoting your set-on-footnings instantly. As a end, you should comment or condense your set-on-footnings further than quoting from them instantly. Nonetheless, you must regularly manifest that your essay does NOT comprehend ANY unsupported claims (or worse, opinions).

Now, such an essay is openly not an manageable peel of pamphlet to transcribe. What you should be doing initiallywhile critically unraveling” your set-on-footnings (flush precedently you set-on-foot exhausting) -- is doubt each of the scrutinys build in "Brenners Top Ten Criteria for Evaluating Minor Sources” and posing those scrutinys to each of your set-on-footnings. Assuming you accept unravel your minor set-on-footnings preservationfully, you should set-on-foot by doubt classifyly one of the three most challenging Ten Criteria” questions (about accuracy,” “objectivity,” or sufficiency.) Then you should unravel thdisordered the entire beginning seeking an retort to it.  And then ask another scrutiny, and relate the rule until youve mellow at averageest the three most challenging criteria.

Clearly, divers of the minor set-on-footnings you are examining, especially if they are peer-reviewed, conciliate not constitute any open mistakes that guide them to fail” any of the ten evaluative criteria.  Instead, you conciliate approvely merely accept to furnish reasons why the set-on-footnings are such goodresearch. Consequently, you should not be letter sentences such as "this set-on-footning is the highest one ever to oration this standard" or that "this set-on-footning fails completely to oration this standard." Too plenteous perception or too plenteous animadversion in your conclusive "write-up" of these ends--i.e., a well-written, well-organized essayends up making you look less likely.

 Since most undergraduates are not conversant to using these evaluative criteria, I am openly not expecting a administrative (or professorial!) work on this assignment. Yet after a whileout apprehending to irritate examination according to these peels of criteria, you conciliate not apprehend how to do real analysis, a rudiment of discriminating metacognition, i.e., reflection.

THIS ROUGH DRAFT (a minimum of 1500 expression) IS DUE via email by the determination on the list (OCT. 26)!

 

STAGE 4) If (and merely if) I accept favorite extent 3 of your assignment, you may then produce to THOROUGHLY alter your disordered exhaust into a decisive exhaust. This fourth and decisive extent of the message pamphlet assignment does not average you must merely improve some weak issues (spelling, language, and mechanics) and upload it to deflectitin.com converge.  Instead, unravel preservationfully my advice/tips for decisive exhausts, another instrument to be build after a whilein the Term Paper” folder on the Blackboard ignoringage website. 

Rather than classifyly some micro-level changes, you should be revising the disordered exhaustsignificantly /globally/ radically. Of ignoringage, at the identical season you are rethinking the unimpaired essay, you command besides try to constitute your peculiar sentences further clear and concise for the unravelers of your essay (who are not mind readers,” behind all). 

AGAIN: You must alter in-one and substantively. Since the extent 4 assignment is worth 20% of your decisive pace, this does not average you must merely improve some weak issues/items (e.g., mechanics/spelling/grammar). Rather, it requires you to alter significantly and radically the content of your discriminating animadversion essay. That averages you should be fitted to propel separate aggregate chapters, transcribe new ones, or thoughtfully re-classify the ones you accept written. 

THIS FINAL DRAFT OF THE TERM PAPER – which should be at averageest 2000words--IS DUE via the ignoringage Blackboard website converge to deflectitin.com. THE DUE DATE to upload is the determination on the list (NOV. 23)
