PORTFOLIO: IMPLEMENTATION PHASE ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
In this assignment you will complete the project you have been planning on for the past few weeks. This assignment submission should give clear evidence that the Micro-Project has been completed as indicated in the instructions below. In cases involving videos, websites, blog sites, YouTube channels or podcasts, etc., provide hyperlinked URLs in your submission so your instructor can see the work. Make sure they work! Note: This phase leaves a great deal of subjectivity on the part of your instructor; the onus is on you to provide clear and solid evidence that the Micro-Project was completed fully and excellently to receive an “advanced” rating and score.
The specifics regarding the length of assignment, page count, etc. can be found adjacent to each Micro-Project below.
Every assignment should have a standard cover page and, where appropriate, citations and footnotes formatted in current Turabian style. Unless otherwise noted, all work is submitted in Microsoft Word.
Acceptable sources should lean toward scholarly articles, scholarly books, or popular books, preferably published within the last ten years.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
Options Implementation Phase
Advertisement for Ministry Launch Whatever the format chosen for your advertisement, you will need to provide clear evidence of completion for it so that your instructor can score it. Physical evidence is best if possible. If an ad was placed in the newspaper, provide a photo or screen shot of it and/or a web link to that newspaper. If phone calls were the choice, provide a log. There is a great deal of freedom here because the method you chose may be unique; with that freedom however comes the responsibility of being able to prove that the Micro-Project was rigorous, challenging, and completed successfully. You may post one or multiple pieces of evidence in the assignment link.
Article Critiques The Implementation phase will involve submitting a 2-page per article critique of the 10 articles. Format each critique with the bibliographic information in current Turabian format at the top of each page (1,3,5, etc), followed by your double-spaced 2-page critique. Combine the critiques into one 20 page Word document. A table of contents, bibliography page, direct quotations, Introduction, Conclusion, or other subheadings are discouraged. Footnotes are at the discretion of your instructor.
Blogging This phase will involve the actual launch of one blog posting. In addition, you are required to complete 6 full-length blog scripts, and post at least one of them to your official blog site. For this assignment, combine the six scripts into one document for grading purposes, and clearly provide the URL hyperlink to your blog site at the top of your document for instructor review and grading.
Brochure Or Poster The Implementation phase presents the 3 completed brochures / posters in their final form, in addition to a 5-page document with information from the prior phases explaining the research and development of the projects, and how and where the project will be used in ministry. You will submit the brochures / posters as individual attachments or preferably as hyperlinks in formats your instructor can easily access. You can submit those documents via an app such as GoogleDoc, Dropbox, or other, or a separate URL link, PDFs, etc. The point is your instructor must be able to inspect all 3 items in the Micro-Project. It is your responsibility to ensure that is possible if needed.
Book Reviews During the Implementation phase you will formally submit your reviews to the journals. Submit a copy of each book review article sent to the publisher and a copy of each cover letter you included with each submission. Format your grading submission thus: LUO cover sheet, cover letter 1, book review 1, cover letter 2, book review 2, bibliography page.
Case Study In the Implementation phase you will complete the case study examining a particular ministry model or program that best represents a potential solution to your own ministry problem. For this assignment you will write a 10-page report of the case study process and procedure in terms of the investigation and data collection and give an analysis of why that case may or may not work in your situation.
Chronological Flowchart The Implementation phase presents a finely tuned, attractive and easily understood chronological flowchart along with 10 pages of detailed narration in a Word document explaining each of the steps in the chart in detail. If the flowchart was in a non-Word format, ensure your instructor can open and view it for evaluation. We should be able to look at the flowchart and understand the chronology of what to do first, second, third etc. to accomplish your goal. The narration then expands upon all those steps in great detail.
Fieldwork The Implementation phase will involve the launch of the ministry intended and an explanation of it. Fieldwork is often laying groundwork prior to a launch. If the actual launch did not take place due to constraints, explain in what the constraints were and how you plan to overcome them to fulfill the fieldwork and complete the project, giving a detailed timeline toward completion along with steps needed to do so. “Launch” can be meeting with the board and explaining the proposed ministry, setting dates, etc. or actually beginning it. Evidence must be provided that you went into the field and took steps to establish a new ministry where one did not exist. A 10-page report of progress is required here.
Illustrative or Interactive Messaging The Implementation phase is the actual message delivered to an audience, utilizing either audience interactivity or visual illustrations or both. The message must be video recorded for posting on YouTube for a grade, and you will provide the YouTube URL in a 5-page Word document along with an explanation of the message and illustrations used for this assignment. The grade is heavily based on quality, engagement, interest, and applicability of the message itself. Presentation and quality are everything here.
Instructional Video The Implementation phase is where you present the instructional “how to” lesson. This need not be in front of a live audience. Evidence that the video was completed should be provided. The video should open with a title in it. You will provide a Word document with the YouTube URL hyperlink for your instructor to watch the training along with a 5-page explanation of the instructional message contents, purpose, and construction processes. The grade rests heavily on whether the project shows quality, professionalism, editing, and whether or not it accomplished its purpose well.
Interviews and Analysis In the Implementation phase, you will have interviewed each person for no longer than one hour. You will mentally compare and contrast their responses and insights that emerge as a whole. To better analyze the responses, in this phase organize a document thus: write out Question 1, and then post all 5 participant’s responses to the question word for word, single-spaced under it. Insert a break, and follow this with Q2 and the 5 responses and so forth. You will conclude the paper with a brief analysis of how the interviews went, the processes, etc. Do not analyze the content of the interviews; you will do that in the Culmination phase. Here simply analyze the process and procedure of how the interviews progressed.
Ministry Development Plan The completion of the “Working Outline” in the Plan is the Implementation phase. You will submit the entire plan once again, including now this section and correcting any errors in the previous sections. Plan ahead! This entire MDP will be inserted into the Implementation section of your Culmination paper, which also requires a 3 page Justification, 3 page Peer Review and 3 page Analysis. So your entire MDP cannot exceed 21 pages in length.
Panel Discussion The Implementation phase will require 3 thirty-minute events with panelists and an audience in which your 3 topics are discussed to be posted into a private YouTube channel for grading. YouTube may not permit a long submission and it may need to be broken into three thirty-minute panel discussions to post. However, you will need to submit in a Word document the URL(s) and a general 3-page description of the event for your instructor to review the panels.
Podcasting The Implementation phase you will launch only the first podcast and provide whatever link or URL are necessary for your instructor to listen to your podcast. Include in this phase a 3-page explanation of your plan to track audience listenership, how you will reach out to new and current listeners, and how you believe this information will impact your ministry.
Website The Implementation of this project requires launching your website for instructor evaluation. Provide the URL hyperlink in the assignment submission in a Word document, as well as a brief explanation of the website’s creation, implementation steps, and if improvements were made to an existing website, explain what those improvements were and why they were made. In the latter case, provide both URL hyperlinks to the old site and the revised site. This phase should be 5 pages.
Workshop Host In the Implementation phase you will hold the workshop in a location and time as intended. From copious notes off the recording you will report in 5 pages the event as it unfolded, from beginning to end. Help the reader “experience” what transpired. Include a hyperlinked URL video recording of the workshop, all details, actual numbers of attendees, feedback from the audience, things that went well or those that did not, interactions, questions, etc. Do not submit the previous documents from phases 1 and 2. The grade will derive from a combination of this report and the instructor’s observation of the workshop event recording.
YouTube Channel The Implementation phase presents a new YouTube channel fully launched. Revising an existing YouTube channel is not permitted; this must be a totally new creation. You must have at least one video posted to the channel for your instructor to watch. The video should engage the viewer, be unique in content and presentation format, and have a relationship to your cognate and problem statement. An “advanced” YouTube channel gives evidence that the presentation was edited. It may have a title, credits, introductory music, graphics, etc. In a 5-page Word document, provide your YouTube URL hyperlink, along with an explanation of the content and how it was created, as well as any other pertinent information.
