7 Catalog Description In this course, we will focus on the origins and literature of the Hebrew Bible and prominent leaders in Israel's history. In addition you will also read a wonderful little book called, How to Read the Bible. Course Overview 1. You will become familiar with the major divisions of the Hebrew Bible. 2. You will become familiar with the key figures and issues of ancient Israel's history. 3. You will become familiar with the occasion and purpose of the various writings. Learning Outcomes At the completion of this course, students will be able to: Comprehend how the Hebrew Bible (OT) was written. Understand the major issues confronting a new religion. Grading Be able to discern the various differences and types of literature found in the Hebrew Bible. I use the plus, minus grading system. 101 = A = A = A = B = B = B = C = C = D = E 7 of 8

8 Grading Procedure Grades reflect your performance on assignments and adherence to deadlines. Graded assignments will be available within 48 hours of the due date via the Gradebook. Papers For all papers the guidelines are few and simple: 1. Double-space with 11 or 12 size type font. 2. Use in-text parenthetical citations for quotes. Example: "According to Cox or Collins..." (p.2) There is no need to use other sources for your papers other than the texts. In other words, do not use other online source material. 3. your papers as a Word document attachment to 4. ALWAYS put your name, course title, assignment number on the paper you are sending. 5. Use your creativity! Feel free to title them, illustrate them, etc. Creativity will not be punished. And longer is always better than shorter. 6. Any act of academic dishonesty such as copying another paper or plagiarism results in instant failure of the class. (Unfortunately, this has happened too many times!) 7. There is no reason for late work since the assignments are spaced out generously. Two exceptions are made: You join the class late and medical reasons; a death in the family, etc. 8 of 8
