Content and Purpose of Course
In this course we will be covering the first half of the Book of Mormon, 1 Nephi 1 through Alma 29. The purpose of the course is to get a deeper understanding of the Book of Mormon and the doctrines and principles it teaches.
|First Exam||100 points|
|Second Exam||100 points|
|Final Exam||200 points|
|Reading for Class||50 points|
|Scripture Reading (second time)||50 points|
Note: Each class period has an assigned reading for it. On each day of class I will pass a roll around for you to mark whether you have done the assigned reading. Each day will be worth 2 points and cannot be made up. In addition to the reading for each class period, you can receive 50 points for reading the first half of Book of Mormon. These are not extra credit points--if you don't do the extra reading you will loose the equivalent of half a test in points.
Class Preparation and Attendance
You should come to class each day having read the assigned portion of the Book of Mormon and be prepared to discuss it. You should always bring a copy of the Standard Works with you to class. Since a significant portion of the exam questions will be based on the classroom discussion, it is to your advantage to be there. One or two absences may not hurt you, excessive absences will. In cases of illness, family emergencies, etc. please see me.
