Choice Book Essay
Introduction to Christian Education
EL1515, Luther Seminary, Fall 2012
Choice book essay instructions (due December 2)
This assignment has three goals:
to reﬂect concretely upon the book you chose to use as your foundation text
to work with a classic piece of content from within your speciﬁc denomination/tradition (for most Lutherans, I recommend Luther’s Small Catechism)
Towards that end, this essay needs to include at least the following elements:
a clear reference to, and explanation of, your author’s core deﬁnition of religious education
a rationale for why you chose the “classic piece of content” that you did (this rationale will likely explain why this is “classic” within your tradition, and what about the context you are writing for makes this a good choice)
an explanation, using Vella’s principles, for how your plan for engaging this content makes good sense for learning in this context
Before you hand in this assignment, please take a quick look at the learning unit rubric and consider how well your plan would embody the elements found there.
