ASSIGNMENT 1 - REFLECTIVE LEARNING
Part A: Reflections
This assignment will be by continuous assessment. Please send by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, a paragraph or two (250 to 300 words maxiumum) that encapuslates your thoughts from the 'Reflect' section of each session as soon as you have completed it. This will build up into a learning journal for the module (this does not apply to Study Days). Please use the 'Assignment 1 Template' document in the Resources section below to write your reflections. You can, if you prefer, audio record the reflections and send those instead but please make sure you include all the information in the docment below. You will not be able to progress to the next session until you have sent the paragraph to the module leader.
Length: 250 - 300 words per session
Part B: Something Practical to Do Posts
All of your 'Something Practical To Do Posts' on the Forum will also be taken into account as part of this continous assessment process.
You will receive feedback at the end of the module at the same time as the feedback for Assignment 2.
Due by: the end of each session
All sessions to be completed by: 26th April 2024
ASSIGNMENT 2 - RESOURCE FOR OTHERS & COMMENTARY
Part A: Resource for Others
In your assigned small group, design and present a video bible study resource that could be used by any church home group to introduce the prophet Amos, his message and its relevance for today (you should NOT actually deliver this to a group, it is a video resource, so is meant to be available to groups to use without you being present). This should be a single session (imagine the Diocese is producing a series of these overview resources for churches on all the prophetic books and you have been asked to produce the one on Amos). Don't ask participants to read the whole book first - you should give them key passages to read during the session.
You should use the knowledge you have gained from the module, putting it into an engaging and informative session that includes discussion questions. The session should last no more than 25 minutes (don't make it too much shorter though) and it must be videoed (please do NOT embed audio in a powerpoint file, it's almost impossible to get it to play, use video technology). You may also produce handouts and extra resources if you wish. The video and any extra resources should be submitted to one member's GoogleDrive folder (decide together which member this will be, and then that member should email email@example.com to ask for the the link to the folder). In the Resources section you will find an example of this assignment - please don't just copy it! You will also find a Guidance sheet to help you with the assignment, please read it before you start.
Length: 15 - 25 minutes maximum
Please name your file 'Assignment 2 - Part A Resource for Others'
Part B: Commentary
Individually, write or audio record a rationale for your project. Include a brief description of the approach you decided to take together, what you decided to include in the resource and, crucially, why, how you feel it went when you put it altogether as well as how you found working in a group. Reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of the finished resource and what you might do differently on another occasion. Each student should submit to their own GoogleDrive folder (email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the link). You may write this part of the assignment or record it as an audio/video file. Make sure you include a full bibliography of any books/videos you read/watched to help you with your part of the session.
Length: 1000 word or 10 minutes.
