Assignment in Brief

Choose one of the following projects to complete for your assignment:

1) Video: Documentary

Create a documentary video depicting major events in salvation history. Your video should mention and include a brief explanation of the following events:

  • Protoevangelium: God heralds coming victory over evil
  • Noah: covenant to never destroy the earth again
  • Abraham and Sarah: covenant to inherit Promised Land & have numerous descendants
  • Moses in Egypt: Deliverance from slavery
  • Moses in the Desert: 10 Commandments / the Law
  • Joshua: conquering and settling the Promised Land
  • Saul and David: God gives Israel a king; the next king unites tribes into a kingdom
  • Isaiah: Israel conquered by Babylonians, and all Hebrews taken away in exile to Babylon; and later they return to Israel
  • Maccabees: Jewish independence restored
  • Jesus Christ: Paschal Mystery
  • Peter / Paul / Mary Magdalene: spread of Gospel message and the Church

Your video must be at least 10 minutes long and include each of these events in chronological order.

2) Art Gallery

Create a museum-quality art gallery illustrating one​ of the following topics:

  • Covenants: Noah, Abraham, Moses, David, Jesus as the New Covenant
  • Jesus’ Miracles (must include at least 5 different miracles)
  • Major events in salvation history (see list above)

Create a curated display of images of at least 10 museum-quality works of art that depict one of the topics listed above. For each of the art images, you will write a 120-word (1/2 page) analysis of that image, describing and explaining how the artist depicted that particular event or concept. You must include at least 3 symbolic aspects per image, with unique symbolic elements for each art image. For the art gallery, choose an electronic presentation form (Powerpoint, Prezi, Sway, etc.). You will give an oral presentation of your art gallery in class.

Note: Only one person per class may present on each particular topic in this category.

3) Faith and Science: Original Sin and Human Origins/Evolution

Create a Presentation Explaining:

  • What paleoanthropologists currently understand about human origins.
  • What the Catholic Church actually teaches about the relationship between faith and science, especially regarding human origins and original sin
  • Examine these scientific findings in light of the teaching of the Catholic Church, including original sin.

Your presentation may be either a traditional written paper or it may be visual (Powerpoint, Prezi, Sway, etc.) with an accompanying oral explanation.

4) Miracles

Research a Roman Catholic saint who has been canonized in the past 30 years based on two miracles. Create a presentation about that saint that includes the following:

  • Biography
  • Journey of Faith / how they lived their Catholic faith
  • Explanation of each of the two miracles that occurred through that saint's intercession
  • Details about the process of canonization, including dates of each official step.

​Your presentation may be a traditional written paper or it may be visual (Powerpoint, Prezi, Sway, etc.) with an accompanying oral explanation.

Note: Only one person per class may present on a particular saint.
