Writing on the doctoral level should reflect the highest levels of critical thinking as explained by Bloom’s Taxonomy (see the Instructor Add-ons). As a result, be sure to move beyond the documentation of facts into examining the relationship of the facts with one another. Use evaluation, analysis, and synthesis in the essay with a carefully constructed argument linked to a clear thesis statement. A best practice is to read the two sets of instructions and rubric before the paper is written and then after the paper is written. Be sure that all the required sections of the paper have been properly addressed. OVERVIEW As doctoral researchers, integrating elements of Christian theology and Christian practices into the theoretical orientation of research can be significantly challenging. As a result, many doctoral researchers omit or temper these notions. In this assignment, you will explore the relationship and influence of biblical exegesis, personal bias, and theology on the presentation of doctoral research. IMPORTANT! The idea of research in this paper is doctoral research (dissertation) and not just biblical research. Make sure the sectional discussions are presented in the context of doctoral research. OUTLINE Please organize the essay in this manner: Title Page Introduction with closing thesis statement (please note that Introduction is not used as a heading) The Influence of Biblical Exegesis The Influence of Personal Bias The Influence of Personal Theology Conclusion References SECTIONAL EXPLANATION Introduction The goal of this paper is to examine three major influences on doctoral research. In the introduction, start with a wider entrance into the topic and use connecting phrases and concepts to narrow down the flow of thought to a specific thesis statement. The closing thesis statement should state the core principle of the paper and not just its outline. The thesis should state the basic principle on how to navigate these influences in gathering, interpreting, and presenting doctoral research. Remember that Introduction is not used as a heading. The Influence of Biblical Exegesis • A description of the role of biblical exegesis in the relationship between, orthodoxy, orthopraxy, and doctoral research. • Does biblical exegesis function more as mediator or moderator in this relationship? Why? The Influence of Personal Bias • A discussion of how researchers can mitigate the influence of their personal assumptions regarding orthodoxy and orthopraxy on the presented results of their doctoral research. The Influence of Personal Theology • A discussion of how the presentation of the doctoral research results may differ when the assumptions of the researcher are based in contemporary theology rather than orthodox theology. Conclusion Remember, a conclusion should review the main points of the paper and restate its thesis. Do not include new information in the conclusion. References Two scholarly resources are required for this paper. A scholarly resource must be a journal article that is also cited in the paper’s content. Make sure the resources make significant contributions to your thoughts. ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES • Remember to not place the Bible on the reference page in APA format. Always include the version with the first direct quote. The version does not have to be included with additional direct quotes unless the version changes. • Remember to use the APA template and style guide attached to this announcement. There is no need to re-create the template! Learn to type over the pre-formatted template with each essay. • Remember to write a thesis statement that reflects the core principle of the paper. A thesis statement should NOT say, “This paper will…” It should NOT outline the main points of the paper. The thesis statement in this paper should state the leadership theory most effective for ministry application. • Remember, do not use first or second person voice (I. we, us, you, your, etc.). • Remember, Introduction is not used as a heading in APA format. • Remember to avoid the use of direct quotes. Replace direct quotes with your own words using summary, synthesis, and paraphrase. Be sure to add resources as citations to award credit for ideas. • Remember to stay within the word limit of 1250 – 1500 words. Point deductions will be considered for papers under or over the parameters of the word limit. • Remember this assignment requires a Turnitin submission (15% is the highest permissible score). • Remember this essay is due by Tuesday August 30, 2016. Use the preformatted templet below APA style with a running head and numbers at the top right of the page. Orthodoxy, Orthopraxy, and Research Student A. Sample Grand Canyon University: MIN-827 Date Orthodoxy, Orthopraxy, and Research This is an electronic template for papers written in APA style (American Psychological Association, 2010). The purpose of the template is to help the student set the margins and spacing. Margins are set at 1 inch for top, bottom, left, and right. The type is left-justified only—that means the left margin is straight, but the right margin is ragged. Each paragraph is indented five spaces. It is best to use the tab key to indent. The line spacing is double throughout the paper, even on the reference page. One space is used after punctuation at the end of sentences. The font style used in this template is Times New Roman and the font size is 12. The Influence of Biblical Exegesis The heading above would be used if you want to have your paper divided into sections based on content. This is the first level of heading, and it is centered and bolded with each word of four letters or more capitalized. The heading should be a short descriptor of the section. Note that not all papers will have headings or subheadings in them. The subheading above would be used if there are several sections within the topic labeled in a heading. The subheading is flush left and bolded, with each word of four letters or more capitalized. APA dictates that you should avoid having only one subsection heading and subsection within a section. In other words, use at least two subheadings under a main heading, or do not use any at all. The Influence of Personal Bias When you are ready to write, and after having read these instructions completely, you can delete these directions and start typing. The formatting should stay the same. However, one item that you will have to change is the page header, which is placed at the top of each page along with the page number. The words included in the page header should be reflective of the title of your paper, so that if the pages are intermixed with other papers they will be identifiable. When using Word 2003, double click on the words in the page header. This should enable you to edit the words. You should not have to edit the page numbers. The Influence of Personal Theology In addition to spacing, APA style includes a special way of citing resource articles. See the APA manual for specifics regarding in-text citations. The APA manual also discusses the desired tone of writing, grammar, punctuation, formatting for numbers, and a variety of other important topics. Although the APA style rules are used in this template, the purpose of the template is only to demonstrate spacing and the general parts of the paper. The student will need to refer to the APA manual for other format directions. GCU has prepared an APA Style Guide available in the Student Writing Center for additional help in correctly formatting according to APA style. Conclusion The reference list should appear at the end of a paper (see the next page). It provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and retrieve any source you cite in the body of the paper. Each source you cite in the paper must appear in your reference list; likewise, each entry in the reference list must be cited in your text. A sample reference page is included below; this page includes examples of how to format different reference types (e.g., books, journal articles, information from a website). The examples on the following page include examples taken directly from the APA manual. References American Psychological Association. (2010).
