Describe the reasons behind the beginning Israel’s monarchy. Why did the people want a king, and why was Saul chosen? Overall, do you think Saul was a good choice? Why or why not?

No, though he looked like a good king, sometimes his heart often betrayed him. -Saul usurped the priestly role when it served his purposes. -Saul made a rash oath and later tried to apply it in a foolish manner. -Saul failed to follow God’s instructions concerning the Amalekite.

Explain the difference between summative and formative assessments.
Summative assessment is the process of evaluating the student(s) post instructional unit. They are generally high stakes and are compared against some standard or benchmark. e.g. midterm, final exam, final project, etc. Formative assessment is assessing the students formally and informally during the learning process. The purpose is to modify teaching or have a baseline to show the student's understanding. e.g. strategic questioning, pop quizzes, observations.
