Reading assignments (30% of course grade):
There will be twelve assignments. These will generally ask you to respond to some of the readings in the syllabus. For the most part, these assignments require short answers of no more than two paragraphs (or two hundred words) to questions about the readings. There are some guidelines for writing responses from a past class here.
Responses are worth up to 3 points each. Your two lowest grades will be dropped. Thus, each student can receive up to 30 points for assignments, based on their ten best assignment grades. From time to time you will be called upon to discuss your assignments in class.
Assignments will normally be given on Thursdays and must be submitted via bspace by 5 pm on Sunday. No late assignments and no assignments sent by email will be accepted. You may be called upon to discuss your assignments in class.
