RESEARCH/ANALYSIS’ PAPERS

All Research/Analysis’ papers must be submitted using the TTUS Paper Format Requirments and are taken from the  APA guidelines.

Analysis’ Papers:

Included in the notes on the Minor Prophets are guidelines for questions that will be taken from Don Melhus’ book that he includes at the end of each chapter within the PDF book. The undergraduate student when presented at the end of the lesson right before the quiz will be required to write a 150 to 250 word, double spaced, report on the particular question chosen and the student will follow the TTUS Paper Format Requirements

The paper will be an opinion paper and no references will be required, but if the student uses any references they must be sited, including Don Melhus’ book. The student when referring to the Bible in these reports will only cite the Bible reference (Matthew 1:1) but will not include the scripture in the report only the citation.

Each report will be worth up to 5 points depending on the quality of work given, resources cited and the uniqueness of paper. 5 Points may not seem much but accumulative if the student did not do these papers then the student would fail the course. These papers represent 35% of your total overall grade. So this means there will be 6 Analysis’ Papers scattered through the lessons, so please be aware of these and watch for them at the end of the lessons.
