More detailed rubric from the Professor:
The portfolio is supposed to be a summary of how each of the unit’s topics are approached from a biblical perspective (and is going to be easiest to use each unit’s Bible verses as a guide). So, for example, in Unit 1 the Bible verses were about sustainability and biology. Other topics in the course pertain to the creation of life, Christ sustaining all things, human health, biodiversity, etc. Essentially, I am looking for summaries of what you learned and will learn regarding these various topics from a Biblical perspective. You should find Bible verses and other resources to back up your claims. As it is 10 pages, you can plan on dedicating about 1 page per weeks’ worth of material, with an introductory page and a conclusion page. One thing that is encouraging to see is how your thoughts may have changed throughout the semester with regards to any particular topic. I hope this provides a little more explanation on what to chew on as you prepare to write this larger paper that is worth a significant proportion of your grade.
