Make-up Policy

This document is intended to clearly define the expectations you must meet in order to receive credit for a missed chapel.  As noted in the chapel attendance document, students are expected to complete a two page paper for each chapel they are short of the minimum attendance requirement. 

Paper Overview:

Think of your paper as an essay with 5-7 paragraphs that includes a summary of the speaker’s message and your reflection on that message.  Use the first paragraph to introduce the topic, giving the main idea and three supporting points.  Use the next three paragraphs to further develop each of the three points.  To develop a paragraph, you may tell how each point related to the scripture for the day, you may recount an example or illustration that the speaker used to support the point, or you may further explain that point in your own words.

If these options are not appropriate for the particular message, think of your three paragraphs as the beginning, middle, and end of the message, and thus, a summary. 

The final paragraph(s) should reflect your own thoughts on the message as to its significance in your own life. 

Use the following questions to guide your thoughts.

  1. Did it connect with anything else that you have been learning about the Christian walk? 
  2. Did it make you think about something in a fresh way?
  3. Did it generate some questions in your mind?
  4. Did it inspire you to action?
  5. Did it relate to any other scripture you have been reading?

 

Remember: the purpose of this paper is to convince your reader that you heard and understood the message.  You must present the main idea clearly, support that idea with explanatory evidence, and relate the message to your own life. 

Additional Requirements:

  • Use new times roman 12 font, single spacing, and 1 inch margins.
  • List your name, box number, phone number, the chapel on which the paper is based (title listed on the CD), and the date your make-up must be completed on a cover sheet and attach it to your two page document.
  • Use proper spelling and grammar. 
  • Be sure that your paper is two pages in length. One and three quarters is one and three quarters.
  • Staple pages together.

 * NOTE:  Your paper will be evaluated on the criteria above as well as content.
