Attention Please I will need two different folder, The Transcript and the paper
Identify someone from a different faith practice and ask if you can interview him/her for this class assignment. If you are a Christian, find someone who is not. Your interviewee could be Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, atheist, etc. Interviewing someone of a different denomination within Christianity does not count, unless that person is a nominal Christian who does not practice the Christian faith. If you are not a Christian, interview someone who is.
Interview the individual using the Question Bank provided in this Content Module as a basis for the content to be discussed. A written transcript of the interview is required, as well as a 5- to 7-page typed paper that synthesizes the material with DCM concepts.
Students are expected to include content from the interview (views of the individual interviewed), DCM material, and specific textual AND biblical reference to the topics covered in the interview.
Submit both the transcript and the paper in the Assignment link. Continue reading for more detailed instructions.
The purpose of this project is to gain an understanding of a different worldview and its impact on things such as cultural engagement, liberal arts education, and one’s life commitments (work, finances, family, etc.). Most people are happy to share their beliefs and values if they know they will be heard and not coerced into believing something different. You could say, “I’m in a class about how worldview affects one’s choices. Could I interview you to learn about what you believe and our values and how they shape your decisions and actions?”
It is an opportunity for you to encounter a different belief system and explore the importance of love and truth as your worldview intersects another’s.
The purpose of this assignment is NOT to practice sharing your belief system or debate with the interviewee. Be a learner. Seek to understand the other person and her belief system and life commitments; then compare and contrast them with your own.
First, if you are interviewing someone who is not familiar to you, introduce yourself. Tell him about your interests, family, education, work experience, etc. Try to build some common ground around a shared interest. If you already know this person, you can skip this step. Your conversation should be face-to-face (in person, over Zoom, etc.), and it is strongly suggested that you record the conversation to assist in typing up the transcript. Remember to get permission prior to recording your interview. It is unethical to record a conversation without making all participants aware of the recording.Second, ask some of the questions from the Question Bank regarding worldview and its impact on politics, social issues, cultural engagement, educational commitments, and life commitments such as work and family. Do not direct your questions too rapidly at the interviewee without regard for his opinion or what he has just said. Be willing to adjust the way you phrase questions such that you are still gathering the content required by the assignment but not disregarding the flow of the conversation.Third, type up the interview transcript (or use dictation software) to consult as you write your paper.Fourth, write a 5- to 7-page paper to express your findings. Your paper is to be typed, double spaced, 12-pt. Times New Roman font. Pay attention to spelling and grammar, organization, and syntax. Use the following as guidance for the structure of your paper.Title page (APA format).
Introduction—Describe the purpose of this project and include the name of the person you interviewed along with how you know the person. Establish how her worldview is different from yours.
Worldview Description—Reflect on the answers given regarding worldview and belief questions. In what ways do you agree with the interviewee’s worldview? In what ways do you disagree? Compare and contrast your worldview with the one presented by your interviewee. Remember to provide specific material from the interview, from DCM texts, and Scripture. DO NOT list the questions and answers in this paper! You have a separate transcript for that. Weave the answers into your essay.
Implications of Worldview on Life—Reflect on the answers given from each of these areas: (1) social/cultural, (2) family/work, and (3) education. Do you see ways in which the person’s worldview influences her views of life goals and decisions? Do you agree/disagree with the answers given to these questions? Do you see how your worldview might lead you to set different goals or make different decisions? If you find that you have different worldview commitments but similar life goals, why do you think that is? Again, remember to reference specific material from the interview, from DCM texts, and from Scripture. Remember that worldview determines behavior, so demonstrate how these differing worldviews do that.
Conclusion—What about this assignment surprised you or challenged you? Do you have any significant insights after engaging with your interviewee?
