SUGGESTIONS:
1. Remember, an evaluation is different from a summary or an analysis. Evaluations are about determining whether something is good or bad. But the only way we can evaluate something is to know the criteria. Without a clear criteria, it is impossible to know if something is good or bad. For this class and this specific assignment, I am asking you to use a theological framework or biblical worldview as your criteria. According to what the Christian tradition teaches, is carpe diem a good or bad way to live our lives?

2. Now, before you jump to one side or another, don’t forget that this is not a simple question. It all depends on how you define what carpe diem means (using the texts we have been studying) and how you define the criteria (using this week’s readings). Do not rely on your own definition or opinion about this topic. This essay is not asking for your personal preference. Instead, it is an objective evaluation of a concept using a specific criteria.

3. Therefore, it is very important that you establish in the introduction a clear and precise definition of carpe diem (go back to earlier lectures and texts if you have to). Then decide which texts you will use to help define a theological framework or biblical worldview? Practice by creating an outline of your essay and think about which texts and, more specifically, which quotations you will place in each paragraph.
