Syllabus for Mr. Cap's Bible Class

  A Study in "Creation and Pilgrim's Progress"  
Welcome to my Bible class. This is going to be a great school year and I'm looking forward to teaching you.
How do I find Mr. Cap's web page?   
1. Go to VCS High School web site
2.  Find Mr. Cap's name in teacher index on left.    3. Go to the Favorites star and save as favorite.

Supplies needed: NIV or NKJ version of the Bible , loose-leaf notebook paper or spiral notebook, pencil, colored pencils, pens, red pen.

The first semester this class will cover topics found in This New Life, a mini book written by Dr. Billy Joe Daughtery.  Then students will explore topics in creation vs. evolution as well as current issues taught from a Christian perspective. Mr. Cap tries to use the latest Internet and computer access advantages a teacher can have as a resource for students.

The second semester this class will cover topics found in John Milton's epic work Pilgrim's Progress.  Students will examine Milton's work using the study book A Christian Adventure by Frank Hamrick.

Grading:  I usually cover one lesson topic per week.  See Mr. Cap's Bible weekly syllabi. All students that are present or absent for class must take notes over the lesson and turn in for a grade. All lessons are on Mr. Cap's web site.

There will also be a midterm project during the first semester consisting of an individual Bible devotion.

Bible Expectations:

I like to start off every Bible class with about 10 minutes of Bible reading and prayer time.  This is your personal time in the Word.  Focus on the chapter in the Bible we are studying that week.   After you have read the chapter then focus on key words and phrases that are repetitive.  Do not work on other school work.  Do not engage or become distracted by your neighbor. 

STUDENT MATERIALS

  • Pen or pencil, notebook paper, NIV or NKJ Bible —every day!— and whatever other materials we are currently studying.
  • Textbook : The NIV or NKJ Bible, bring your own every day we have class.
