Directions: There will be two parts to this portion of the assignment, Part A and Part B. Please complete all sections on this document, as this is what you will be submitting for your entire Topic 1 Assignment (Parts 1 and 2).

In Part A, you begin by keeping an informal time log in which you note all your activities for 3 days, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m.(even if your wake-up and bedtime alter from this beginning and end time, please use this time-frame and just place what you are doing during the hours allocated). You will use this information for planning ways to make better use of your time.

In Part B, you will briefly analyze the results from your time log to determine the changes you need to make to your time schedule and how you will manage those changes. After analyzing your data, you will construct a reflective 200-250-word summary of your time-monitoring analysis and identify two main discoveries you found; whether this was positive or negative discovery. You may also wish to consider the information from chapter 4 of the textbook as you complete your reflection, as you may wish to reference to help support your findings.

Note: This portion of the assignment will also help in completing the S.M.A.R.T Goals that will come in Week/Topic 5.

Part A: Time Monitoring Activity/Worksheet

In completing the Time Monitoring, you will need to fill out the Time Monitoring Worksheet found below the following directions. *You may also wish to print one to keep for easier record keeping as you track your time, and then complete the chart here to submit with your assignment.

  • Monitor your time in hourly increments:
    1. Carry your Time Monitoring Worksheet with you whenever you are awake.
    2. Each hour of the day, starting at 5:00 a.m. and ending at 11:00 p.m., write down what you did during that hour. If you do not get up until 10 a.m., do you record 5:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m.? Yes, you will just note that you were “sleeping” during those hours.
    3. Do not overdo the recording; record the primary activity for the hour.

 

 

  • On Day 4, when you have 3 days of time monitored, it is time to analyze your time use. You will need to have your Time Monitoring Worksheet available, as you will need this to review and reflect what you have noted, as well as something to take notes with when analyzing your data.
  • New college students usually find that most time management issues, fall into three main categories, so this is where you will start the analysis. Brainstorm and organize your data into the areas noted below, and add area(s) where you see necessary. Here are the three main areas students have mentioned when reviewing their data and reasoning:
  • Making poor judgments about using their time wisely; procrastination would fall under this area or not prioritizing events or tasks wisely.
  • When stressed, becoming immobilized or shutting down mentally and/or physically.
  • Giving less than their best efforts when rushed and overwhelmed or when they feel like quitting.
  • Once you have fully analyzed your data, you will be ready to begin Part B, writing your reflective summary.

Recall a time when you met someone with a different worldview than yours and you had a difficult time relating.

  1. What challenges did you have relating to that person?
  2. How might an understanding of the other’s worldview have helped you in that situation?

 

CWV 101 Topic 1 DQ 2

 

After viewing one of the films listed in the “Topic 1 Discussion Question Film Resource” from the topic materials, answer the following two questions. Before you post, change the title of the post to include the title of the movie you are discussing.

  1. What is one worldview depicted in the movie?
  2. Which character(s) held that worldview?

Provide at least two quotes or scene descriptions from the movie to defend your point.

 

 

CWV 101 Week 1 Assignment Personal Commitments Assessment

 

Details:

In this assignment, you will examine your worldview using the personal commitments described in Chapter 2 of the textbook. This may be the first time you have thought deeply about what you believe, so give yourself time to reflect on each question. You will also have the opportunity to examine your worldview according to a test given in the textbook and to express what you think the Christian faith is all about.

Follow the directions in the “Personal Commitments Assessment.”

GCU style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin. Please refer to the directions in the Student Success Center.

 

 

CWV 101 Topic 2 DQ 1

 

Where do atheism and Christianity agree and disagree on views of the origin of the universe?

What difference might someone’s belief about the origin of the universe make in how that person lives his or her life?

 

CWV 101 Topic 2 DQ 2

 

Explain who God is to the Christian using at least three characteristics of God. Why are the characteristics of God so important to the Christian worldview?

 

CWV Week 2 Assignment Origins Reflection

 

Details:

In this assignment you will summarize beliefs about the origin of the universe and life, including what Christians believe, what you believe, and how people’s beliefs about origins might impact how they live.

After reflecting on Chapters 1 and 2 of Genesis, create a 15-slide PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics, paying particular emphasis on item three:

  1. Briefly explain the Genesis account of creation (first two chapters). The point is not to retell all aspects of the story in detail but just to make the message of the Bible clear.
  2. Explain and support your interpretation of the origin of the universe. Here you may want to address evolution, age of the earth, and whether or not it can be reconciled with the message of the Bible.
  3. Express how your understanding of the origin of the universe impacts your worldview, specifically your view of God, of humanity, and responsibility to care for the earth.

The first slide will be the title slide including your name and course information. The last slide(s) will be your list of references. You may use the textbook, the lecture, or other scholarly references. Cite all sources, including the Bible, as you would in an essay. The in-text citations should be placed on the actual slides in the presentation so the audience can see them. Put basic content on the actual slides and elaborate on all your points in the slide notes.

In an effort to keep the file sizes reasonable, use no more than four low-resolution images. As in all aspects of this course, show respect for all other views, with no condescension. Keep your presentation positive and focused on what you believe, not on what you do not believe.

Use one to three resources, other than the Bible.

While GCU style format is not required for the body of this assignment, solid academic writing is expected, and in-text citations and references should be presented using GCU documentation guidelines, which can be found in the GCU Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center.

CWV 101 Topic 3 DQ 1

 

The Christian worldview provides an explanation for human nature and the story of the creation and fall (Gen 1-3). A great deal of the suffering that people experience and much of man’s inhumanity to man are explained by this description of the fall of human nature. Is this characterization of human nature accurate? Why or why not? If not, what is an alternative explanation?

 

CWV 101 Topic 3 DQ 2

 

How does the Fall relate to tragedies like 9/11 and disasters such as the Tsunami of 2004?
