Bible Course Syllabus
Mr. John R. Wallace, Jr., Senior Administrator
2013-2014 School Year
will be taken by all high school students attending Calvary Christian School
during the 2013-2014 school year. The
class is intended to foster the growth of each student in their relationship
with Jesus Christ. It is hoped that this
growth will lead to a surrendered heart, a transformed mind, and a desire on
the part of each student to live in the center of God’s will for their life as
they become Christian leaders in various vocations and endeavors. There will be
several tools used in this class to help in the accomplishment of the course
Work (30% of the grade)
Each week, a Bible passage will be assigned which is to be memorized. Scripture says to, “Hide the Word in your heart.” This section of the course should encourage you to not just memorize, but meditate and think about what you are reading.
In addition to God's Word, “The Inner Man with Spiritual Leadership”, by J.Oswald Sanders will be used as our text. The text will include The Foundations of Christian Leadership, The God of Leadership, The Attitudes of Leadership, The Standards and Qualities of Leaders, The Price of Leadership and Case Studies in Leadership. There will be supplemental readings throughout the school year which will add depth and breathe to the scope of our study.
You will not learn as much if you are absent.
Anticipated absence - You have the opportunity
to take quizzes, tests, and exams prior to your absence. Also, homework may be
completed prior to the absence.
Unexpected absence - You will have the
equivalent number of days missed to complete assignments. For example, a student absent one day will
have one day to make-up missed work.
Students absent two days will have two days to make-up missed work. All quizzes, tests, and exams must be
completed by the first Friday after the absence. For example, if you are absent
for a test or quiz on Wednesday, the test or quiz must be completed by Friday.
This ensures timely return of all work.
* It is the student’s responsibility to secure
all missed assignments by checking the website or checking with the
MISSING AND LATE WORK
Most homework will not be turned in for a grade.
As Calvary Christian School students, I expect you to be active learners in
class which will lead to your mastery of the material being covered. You need
to be engaged each class. When homework
is turned in, it will not be announced that I will be asking for it. That way, I keep each student “honest” in
their preparation for class. If I
believe that a student is not prepared for class with their homework on a
regular basis, I special arrangement will be made whereby all homework will be
required to be turned in each class for that particular student.
When special activity papers are turned in for a
grade, a late paper will be accepted the day after the assignment is due will a
20% reduction in the grade. No papers
will be accepted after two days.
For Calvary Christian High School Students, the following rules should not need to be stated. However, doing so will serve as a reminder.
The student will sit in his/her assigned seat.
The student is allowed to have bottled water as long as it does not become a distraction.
No talking when the teacher is giving instruction.
No writing or passing notes.
No negative statements about other students or faculty/staff members are allowed in any form.
No defacing textbooks or school property.
No sleeping or pretending to sleep in class.
No writing on yourself.
No food is allowed in the classroom. This includes gum!
The following items are contraband. They are not allowed in the classroom at any time.
Books not required for the course of study
MP3 /IPODs/cell phones/electronic games
Personal student notes
A Final Personal Note- You will be spending about 175 hours of your life in this class. You will probably spend twice that amount of time preparing for this class. It is my hope that you will get the most out of the class by engaging me and your fellow classmates in productive conversation! Let's make this a great class, and a class that honors the Lord as we grow in our Christian walk together!
