Attendance is a vital part of this course; therefore, students are required to attend class sessions and participate actively in discussions. Students are expected to view the archive of any missed class and the student is responsible for obtaining any notes or assignments from any class missed.
Materials Needed for every Class
- Basics of Biblical Greek by William Mounce
- Notebook (for note taking and writing assignments when needed) and writing utensil. You may use online notes if preferred.
Assignments– (All are due on Fridays at 11:59pm PT unless otherwise stated.)
A key part of any language is vocabulary. I recommend studying vocabulary at least 30 minutes every day of the week. You might need to study more than this. I also recommend learning the Greek word not just the English meaning.
I will give a few small grammar and reading/translation assignments for each class meeting per the course schedule. The course schedule will be out soon.
I will give weekly quizzes on vocabulary and grammar forms as well as some basic sentence translations.
At the end of the course I will give a final exam that will cover everything from the course. This will be a helpful test to see what you remember and what you need to work on. This will also be an incentive to keep up with the material over the course.
I will give grades on all assignments and also a final grade for the course. This is not an accredited class so you can ignore the grade if you want. I find grades helpful to be able to track how each person is doing in the class.
Here is the break down for the grades:
- Quizzes: 30%
- Homework: 40%
- Final Exam: 30%
The following grading scale will apply for all assignments and final grades. 100% – 90% = A; 89% – 80% = B; 79% – 70% = C; 69% – 60% = D; 59% – 0 = F.
