*****READINGS*****
(SUMMARIES AND REVIEWS)
 
General Information Concerning Summaries and Reviews 
 
Introduction: Beginning in 2017 John Leland Baptist College began developing a Reading List of books as a requirement for graduation. Students are responsible to read carefully, completely and with understanding a prescribed number of books of various lengths and difficulty covering various fields within our general curriculum. They include works in Science, History, Literature, Theology, Political Science, Psychology, and other areas. Credit is given proportionately according to the length and difficulty of the book or books.  
 
Procedure: All books are read under the supervision of a Reading Mentor; Mentors consist mostly of faculty members and upper level graduate students. Upon registering for a Summary and Review course, the student will be given instructions on how to proceed. The student may be evaluated in any number of different ways. The student may be required to write a Summary or Review; in some cases the Mentor may draw up some brief questions for each chapter to be answered by the student or be asked to take some brief notes of the most important matters while reading the book and to submit them on a weekly basis to the Mentor. And in other cases still, the Mentor may wish to simply hold regular discussions with the student about the book as he or she reads it. At any rate, it will be left up to the Mentor on how best to evaluate whether the student has completed the readings faithfully.   
 
Grading: Once the Reading Mentor has been assured that the student has read the book completely, carefully, and with understanding, the Mentor will issue a grade of “P” on the student’s official Grade Report. “P” represents a “Pass” on a Pass/Fail basis.

*****BIBLICAL READINGS*****
 
(READINGS AND REFLECTIONS)
Introduction: At John Leland College we believe that nothing is more important than the careful and meditative reading of God’s word. Every student is required to carefully and completely read the Bible in its entirety. This series of Readings and Reflections is a graduation requirement for all programs at Leland. You will have other Bible reading assignments in classes throughout your studies at Leland, but this series of Readings and Reflections will assure us that you have at least one time carefully read and contemplated the entire Word of God. This requirement must be completed by the end of your sophomore year in order to continue your studies at Leland. 
 
Procedure: The student is free to complete this reading in any order he or she chooses, but it is generally moreprofitable to complete these readings when taking the corresponding “Survey” courses.
