How do I demonstrate Competency 4? “Guide the student in building a digital library appropriate to the level of biblical study needed, as well as provide an extensive review of Hebrew and Greek tools, commentary sets, and reference works needed at various stages of development as a leader.”
- Most learners draw heavily on their work on Unit 4 projects to demonstrate this competency. All three projects in Unit 4 collaborate to address the two parts of this competency. The first project in Unit 4 can be used to demonstrate the first part of the competency. The second and third projects in Unit 4 can be used to demonstrate the second part of the competency.
- The Core Library project example is intentionally skeletal leaving learners with the task of fleshing out their own library development plans. It starts with higher educational categories that are associated with leadership roles. The types of resources that could be included in the plans are open-ended. However, Antioch School students could productively insert the books that are already embedded in their required courses as a start. They could then include resources that are recommended in the Lifelong Learning sections of the BILD Leadership Series courses before advancing further to any resources of interest whatsoever.
- The Greek and Hebrew Tools project example represents a taxonomy of language resource types. It too will need to be fleshed out by the individual learner. On the other hand, the Commentary and Reference Works project example is more thoroughly developed with specific resources and their prices. The specific books should be viewed as the recommendations of a seasoned minister of the gospel. However, as a project example, it’s should be used as a learning resource rather than as the only correct solution.
