All course readings will be available on E-Reserves.
Participation in class discussion is required. Exemplary participa- tion will add to your grade, up to two-thirds of a letter grade.
Students will be responsible for writing five reading response papers during the term. Each should be a one pagestating the central thesis of the reading and explaining briefly what the author is trying to do. These may be written for any five readings, but must be turned in before we have discussed the readings in class.
Students will be responsible for writing two short papers (2 pages) on assigned topics. These will be due Oct. 4 and Oct. 25.
There will be three exams. The final exam, although at the end, will not be cumulative.
Cheating will not be tolerated.
Students who will need to miss exam dates for foreseeable reasons should discuss them with the professor at the beginning of the term. If an emergency results in absence, the student should contact the professor as soon as possible.
On the back is a provisional schedule. Specific readings may take more or less time than indicated, but exam dates and due dates will not change.
