Part A:

The acts of philosophizing and “thinking again” are best accomplished
through discussion, conversation, and sometimes even debate. This is
how ideas become fleshed out and conversations move forward. As
such, students are expected to produce a robust, video discussion post
this week based on their engagement with course materials. The primary
qualifier for all discussions is that they must have their foundation in
either our philosophical or textbook readings for the week and connect
directly to one or more key excerpts, ideas, passages, or concepts.

The prompt for this week’s video discussion revolves around the
following questions:

What would you say is the most significant concept or compelling idea
presented in this week’s course material? Why do you hold that position?

Part B:
Complicated concepts require careful consideration. This week students
will produce an Articulation Artifact showing their engagement with, and
mastery of this week’s readings and resources. Such articulations can
take the form of one of the following mediums, 5 – 7 part slide deck
(Google Slides or Powerpoint are acceptable), must include references.

Regardless of the method chosen, each student’s goal is to present a
reasonable level of understanding for this week’s core theses, important
premises, and key concepts. 7th edition APA guidelines are required.

Part C:Reflection: Medieval Philosophy, Augustine, and Individual
The purpose of education and philosophy is not to provide answers to all
of life’s questions but to help practitioners ask better questions. For this
class specifically, Journal Reflections provide an opportunity to take our

discussions, questions, and ponderings one step further by making them
applicable to our life, work, and relationships.

After reflecting on the readings, resources, and other discussions, write
a reflective journal entry on the following question(s):

● What is on your mind from this week’s material and discussion?
● What captured your attention or made you think?
● What ideas or concepts did you find helpful, compelling or

● What ideas or concepts did you find less helpful?
● What ideas or concepts did you find immediately applicable to your

life, work, or relationships? How will you apply them?

The Reflection must be 300 – 450 words, in paragraph formatting, and
using 7th ed APA guidelines: Times New Roman or Arial, 12-point font,
double line spacing, a title page, in-text citations, and a reference page.

Your grade will be determined according to the Reflection Rubric
embedded in this assignment dropbox.
