How could the preacher have structured his/her sermon in a more effective, clear way? 3. What function does the biblical text take in the sermon?

(See chapter 8) 9. Comment on the style of the preacher s sermon, as well as his/her delivery.

Class Lectures Date Saturday, 2/14 Saturday, 3/14 Class Lecture Topics Session 1 & 2: Syllabus Overview, Preaching 101: The Basics of Preparation Session 3: Preach Like a Park Ranger: Applying Tilden s Principles of Interpretation to the Task of Preaching!7

8 Session 4: Preach Like an African-American: Structuring Celebration into Your Message Saturday, 4/18 Saturday, 5/9 Sessions 5 & 6: Guest Lecturer TBD Sessions 7 & 8: Sermon Deliveries and Peer Feedback VI. General Course Policies Attendance Because of the limited number of class meetings, it is vital to be in attendance at every class. Only one absence will be allowed in any semester and only in case of genuine emergency. Any absence must be approved by the Administrative Dean. Two absences will require the tuition be forfeited and the course retaken. Academic Freedom Students have freedom to express views in class discussion and written assignments that may be contrary to the views presented by the instructor. The instructor, however, reserves the right to inform students when academic freedom may not be permitted for a particular assignment, or when time constraints prohibit the adequate discussion of a contrarian view. This notification will occur in writing in the assignment instructions, or verbally from the instructor during class discussion. Students grades will not be penalized for advocating a particular view contrary to the instructor. All students, regardless of their views, will have their written assignments evaluated on their ability to properly support their ideas using the biblical text, assigned readings, application of biblical doctrines, application of Apostolic doctrine and practice, and additional research. Academic Honesty Plagiarism, cheating, and dishonesty are in direct opposition to a Christian life and the goals of Arizona School of Ministry. It is assumed that all students enrolled at Arizona School of Ministry have done so for the primary purpose of learning. Students are expected to refrain from those actions that contradict this purpose and which would jeopardize their Christian character and testimony. Any suspected incident of academic dishonesty will be submitted by the instructor to the Administrative Dean for review. The final decision on the nature of the offense (unintentional or flagrant), and any corresponding disciplinary action will rest with the Administrative Committee, which consists of the Administrative Dean, District Superintendent, and the Sectional Presbyter of the student s church. Course Evaluation!8

9 Students are encouraged at any point during the course to offer the instructor any comments that may be helpful to the improvement or refinement of the course. Comments/concerns may be addressed during or after the course (via message, phone conversation, and/or face-toface). A course evaluation form will be available in the final class session, and may be submitted anonymously. Grading Policy While grades are not the most important thing in education, they are an indication of comprehension of the subject matter. Arizona School of Ministry uses a grading system of Pass/ Fail. It must be determined that 70% of reading and assignments have been satisfactorily completed to pass the class. Any tests given in a course must also be successfully completed. Outstanding completion of a course will be awarded a high pass designation and qualify the learner for honors status. The following scale will be used to derive each student s final grade for the course. In addition, this grading scheme should be used to determine academic progress on each of the required assignments. Grade Percentage Score Range Rationale & Meaning of Grade High Pass % Superior work in all areas, exceeding the instructor s written expectations. Exemplary performance, participation, creativity, and writing. Pass 70-89% Fair to good work in most areas, meeting the instructor s written expectations. Minor to serious need of improvement in various areas, such as form, content, or procedures. Fail 69% and below Minimal conformity to instructor s expectations; requires repeat of the course!9

10 In-Class Cell Phone And Other Personal Electronic Device Usage Policy Cell phones and other personal electronic devices must be turned off and out of sight during class. These electronic devices may be turned on and set on silent mode only with the expressed consent of the instructor. Laptop Usage Students may use laptop computers during class, with the consent of the instructor, for the purpose of taking notes or other purposes that are directly related to and supportive of participation in class and the furthering of education. VII. Academic Due Process Students dissatisfied with classroom or academic procedures should use the following due process: 1. Students will attempt to settle differences with an instructor conference within 2 weeks of receiving the disputed grade. The time for settling the difference is extended to 4 weeks in the case of a disputed final grade. 2. If students are dissatisfied with the instructor conference or a decision made, they then will file a written complaint with the Administrative Dean within 1 week of the instructor conference. The written document should fully describe the issue in dispute and steps taken to resolve the conflict. The Administrative Dean will consult with the instructor before any decision is made. The Administrative Dean will make a decision within 2 weeks. 3. If students are dissatisfied with the Administrative Dean s decision, they will then file a written complaint with the Administrative Committee within 1 week of the Administrative Dean s decision. The Administrative Committee consists of the Administrative Dean, District Superintendent, and the Sectional Presbyter of the student s church. The Administrative Committee will review the steps taken by the student, instructor, and Administrative Dean prior to making a decision. The Administrative Committee will make its decision within 2 weeks. The decision of the Administrative Committee is final. VIII. Resources Books Galli, M. & Larson, C. B. (1994).
