Faith & Science Research Project Description

Goal: Read some of the great books and authors of our day on a science related topic and then present what you learned in some form such as a paper.

Resources:
  • Mr. Falk's books
  • The Great Debate on Science and the Bible video series
  • The Lakenet Library System
  • The WMC media center
  • Online resources
Schedule:
Week 1
  1. Decide on a topic to focus on. Do this by sampling a variety of the books Mr. Falk has and books you can find from other sources.  Past topics have included (you are welcome to make your own):
      • Science and Religion
      • The Age of the Earth
      • A Christian View of Evolution (including the different types of Evolution)

2.  Start (and finish?) the Introduction and chapters 1 through 4 of Origins: A Reformed Look at Creation, Design, & Evolution.  
     (End each day/reading session with a list of pages read and a brief summary that will help you make your final product.)

Week 2
    1. Continue recording what progress you're making and what you're learning at least once a day.
    2. Decide on how you are going to represent your learning on your proposed topic.
    3. Finalize your reading list by writing your proposal, printing two copies (one for each of us) and having Mr. Falk sign off on them.
    4. Come up with the question you want to ask and turn it in to the green folder.  (See Grading Rubric #4 for more information.)
    5. Read and record what you're learning. 
Weeks 3, 4 & 5
    1. Read and record what you're learning.  (End each day/reading session with a list of pages read and a brief summary that will help you make your final product.)
    2. Make your project (paper,...) compiling information and showing what you learned.
