Family Discipleship Outcomes Essay I
You will complete an essay on desired outcomes for family discipleship. Your essay will be comprised of three sections in addition to an introduction and summary/conclusion. The first section should introduce the reader to at least 3â€“5 specific desired outcomes from a Family Discipleship Strategy that impacts â€œKnowingâ€ (Cognition). The second section should introduce the reader to at least 3â€“5 specific desired outcomes from a Family Discipleship Strategy that impacts â€œDoingâ€ (Psychomotor/Skills). The third section should introduce the reader to at least 3â€“5 specific desired outcomes from a Family Discipleship Strategy that impacts â€œBeingâ€ (Affective/Beliefs). Each outcome should be followed with a brief paragraph that explains why this outcome is significant for a disciple. You may wish to utilize Bloomâ€™s Taxonomy which provides a helpful list of verbs that may help you in writing your outcomes. You may simply google â€œBloomâ€™s Taxonomyâ€ for additional information.
The following are important questions to consider when planning your outcomes:
Â· How can parent holistically educate and train their children in developing the identified outcomes?
Â· What is the Biblical support for the outcomes you have selected?
Â· What aspects of family discipleship are out of the control of the parent?
Â· How do parents prepare children for life challenges and temptations?
Â· How is family discipleship contextualized based on the age of the child?
Outcomes must begin with, â€œMy child will be able to [insert action verb from Bloomâ€™s taxonomy]â€¦â€ When creating these outcomes, consider the affective, cognitive, and behavioral aspects of training and teaching. All are important.
At least 3 course textbooks/material or peer-reviewed sources must be cited.
This essay must be 4â€“5 pages (typed, 12-point font, Times New Roman, double spaced, and 1-inch margins) and must not be written in first person. The paper should have a title page, table of contents and bibliography.
