Reporting on assigned reading

How to do the weekly reading reports

"Many of the issues covered in the reading are relevant to us in our everyday life because of how diverse America is." -- Shane M., Nazarene Bible College studnet

Grading rubric for writing and submitting weekly reading reports

  1. Does the reflection meet minimum length?
  2. Was it posted on time (by Wednesday night)?
  3. Is there a sense that ALL of the materials assigned to be read this week were read?
  4. Does the reflection show understanding of and interaction with the assigned readings (as opposed to being loosely associated comments which could have been written even if the material had not been read)?
  5. Does the submission move beyond basic summarizing to demonstrating critical-thinking skills (conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and evaluating)
  6. Is the submission acceptable college-level reflective writing?.
  7. Is there an end-of-the-chapter question from the textbook stated along with a substantive answer to that question?:
  8. Is the submission relatively free of proof-reading, grammatical and syntax errors?
  9. In terms of achieving assignment goals, is this reading reflection exceptional, excellent, good, acceptable, minimal or inadequate?

Note: The course web pages on the official NBC site will contain expanded written instructions for the weekly reading reports
