Papers should contain relevant material from the course textbook and lectures and clearly demonstrate the student’s personal comprehension of and interaction with this material. (Students should specifically refer to at least three sections of the text in some fashion in each paper and indicate the page number of these references/quotes in parenthesis following each referenced material/quote.) Example- Citations will look like this in your paper: “… is one of the reasons I have learned as to why I believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God” (p. 27). (You just need to put the page number in parenthesis and bolded as shown in this example. We all know you are referencing the Erickson text in some way since this is the only source from which you are writing your reflection papers.) 2. Papers will be at least 2 full pages in length. (Normal margins, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12 point font only.) 3.
