Gustav Holst: The Planets
– Brief history of genre
 a brief history of the work; when it was written, any interesting facts about its relevance, connections with the composer’s style, etc.

– I consider the format of your paper to be very important. I want you to imitate my format as closely as you possibly can.

– You must have at least one footnote for every page


-You must include at least one quote in each section from another source. This quote can come from an Internet or print source.

-Here’s a tip: Good writers don’t just throw in quotes. They take a quote and refer to it. They even use quotes to support their own arguments. Check out how I used quotes in my sample paper.

·         You must cite at least 1 source in each section

·         They can be from an Internet or printed source

·         You MUST use “footnote” or “Chicago” style citations, not parenthetical citations


-Chicago style requires a superscript number and a footnote. There’s no work-cited page, just the footnote. Footnotes are easy to produce in Microsoft Word. Just position your cursor to the end of the quote, go to “References” and “Insert Footnote. ”Then you’ll be able to insert the information. It’s that easy. There are also videos on youtube.com that can walk you through this process.


• Footnotes should be “Times New Roman” font of 10

A Sacramental Understanding of Christian TheologyA sacrament is a sign that brings about that which it signifies: in the Eucharist the bread becomes what it signifies, the Body of Christ, and brings about a transformation of the recipient into a new creature united with Christ such as to share in the divine nature itself, by adoption. In all the sacraments a physical creature becomes a means by which God’s power and grace transforms people.

Work your way back through the course texts (Lewis, Lion, Witch, Wardrobe; Schmemann, Barrron etc.) and Babette’s Feast. Locate and note down all the material you can find about a sacramental way of thinking and living. Study it, analyze it, and organize the material. PLEASE NOTE WELL: A sacramental way of thinking and living is not the same as the seven Christian sacraments. An essay focused on the seven sacraments will be graded down. This essay is about sacramentality, about sacramental ways of living and thinking.

Now, choose from this collection the most important, most illustrative, best examples for your essay exam. You will not and shouldnot use every scrap of this material in your essay, but trying to make the initial collection as complete as possible will mean that your choices from among this collection will be better, that is, you will be choosing from the most complete pool of material possible.

Then write a five-page, double-spaced typewritten essay providing a succinct yet comprehensive summary of what you have learned about a sacramental understanding of Christian theology. How does a sacramental way of looking at things bring God, creation, creatures, redemption, life, and death into relation with each other? The chapters from Schmemann and the central chapters from Barron, Catholicism, will be important, but so too are The Last Battle and The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Some Christians say they do not believe that creatures are to be used as means of spiritual power–they believe that God mostly or entirely works directly on people’s minds and hearts and not through creaturely intermediaries. Do you see any indications of this sort of directness in the course readings? Does it make any difference whether God works to save, heal, transform, bring into communion with himself by employing the creatures rather than solely working on people directly? If the creatures are not to be employed by God as means of communion, would Creation still be meaningful for Christians? Does it matter whether it is or is not? Why does the Christian belief in Incarnation help understand and explain sacraments and sacramentality? Answer the above questions based on the your collection of notes from the course materials. Write down your answers. This is the raw material for your essay. DO NOT SIMPLY ANSWER EACH OF THESE QUESTIONS ONE AFTER THE OTHER AND CALL THAT YOUR ESSAY. Answer the questions to create a pool of material from which to draw when you actually write your essay.

Select from your answers the material that you can shape into a two or three-part assertion or overall conclusion (thesis) about sacramentality. Then give your evidence (arguments) in support of the way you answer the questions in your two-three part conclusion. You must have a clear, sufficiently complex, arguable (falsifiable) thesis, which in turn must be supported by clear argumentation.

THIS IS NOT SIMPLY AN ESSAY ABOUT THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS. It’s about the larger picture of sacramentality that arises from ALL the materials in the course. An essay merely about the seven sacraments will earn at most a grade of C.

Essays will be evaluated (1) partly on whether you have done a thorough job of collecting your data from the course readings and the film and (2) partly on how well you understand, analyze, and integrate the material you located into a coherent explanation of what a Christian sacramental framework is, how it functions, and why it matters. You need not believe these things yourself. This exam gives you an opportunity to show how well you understand what Christians believe, not what you yourself believe. You may write about what you believe, if you wish, but you need not do so. The one thing you must do is explain accurately, thoroughly, integratedly what Christian theology says about sacramental belief and life.

·         Paper must consist of four sections labeled with the headers Describe, Explain, Predict, and Change
·         Each section must begin with a clearly posed Essential Question.  Think of this as a topic sentence in the form of a question.  See the eBook for examples.
·         All F & P concepts and vocabulary terms must be in bold font with the chapter number listed in parentheses (e.g., I believe this was something I acquired through observational learning (Ch 7) by watching how my mother interacted with people.)
·         P and E variables must be clearly labeled as such variables in parentheses (e.g., My extroverted personality (P variable), contributes to this problem.)

Due:  Varies by section – see class syllabus

How to Submit:  Go to the B110 Homepage. Click on Final Reflection, and follow instructions to upload your document. 

Scoring:  Possible 75 points, according to the Final Reflection Rubric (see below)

Topic:  An observable personal problem, issue, or situation that you are interested in understanding from the perspective of a behavioral scientist

References:
·         Direct quotations from the eBook must be surrounded by quotation marks with the following citation at the end of the sentence: (chapter author’s last name, 2014): Note that quotations should rarely, if ever, be used. 
·         All vocabulary terms should be in bold font and followed by the chapter number in parentheses.
·         Additional sources are not required, however if you choose to include any, they must be appropriately cited using APA style.  See http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/or visit the University Writing Center.

Sections:

I.                     Describe: 
·         This section is a richly detailed observation and description of the personal problem, issue, or situation.
·         It includes three or more supporting examples, and three or more environments or situations in which the problem occurs. The descriptions give the reader a sense of “being there.” The descriptions are both subjective, i.e., from your unique perspective, and objective, i.e., as if you were another person observing yourself.
·         The descriptions do not include explanations as to the origins or causes of the problem. This is in Section II.
·         Fundamental and powerful concepts and vocabulary must be used.
·         This section poses and answers the “what” question.

II.                    Explain: 
·         This section is an explanation of the problem that addresses how it started, how and why it developed, and what is currently maintaining it. In other words, this section includes the history of the problem over time, its possible origins, and why it continues to exist.
·         The explanation correctly uses all elements of B = f (P + E + PE), and includes at least two examples of each element as well as at least two relevant examples of socio-cultural influences.
·         Fundamental and powerful concepts and vocabulary must be used correctly.
·         This section poses and answers “why” and “how” questions.

III.                  Predict: 
·         This section predicts the likely course of the problem in the future, if nothing changes. It answers the question, “What will happen without intervention (i.e., a change in behavior and/or environment)?”
·         The prediction must consider both P and E factors within the context of the history of the problem.
·         Fundamental and powerful concepts and vocabulary must be used correctly.
·         This section poses and answers the “what if” question.

IV.                  Change: 
·         This section proposes interventions that have the potential to positively affect the outcome of the problem or prevent the problem’s reoccurrence.
·         Effective interventions focus on all three elements of the problem. In other words, they address aspects of P, E, and PE. Proposed interventions are effective only to the extent that they are connected to Section II, i.e., the explanations of the causes of the problem.
·         Fundamental and powerful concepts and vocabulary must be used correctly.
·         This section poses and answers the “what now” question.

Sea World

Develop cost estimates for each task. 1st task is (Research and Decide what market to enter) and 2nd task is (Develop Global Brand). You just have to keep in your mind all the information in above must follow my recommendation which is ((We chose our recommendation of expanding into foreign markets that are both profitable and outside the influence of American media because Sea World currently has no properties outside of the United States, and due to the recent exposé called “Blackfish”, attendance has suffered across all of their locations and investor confidence has dwindled)).
