Quizzes and Short Papers

There will be ONE (1) map (geography) quiz which must be passed in order to pass the course. Other quizzes, both announced and unannounced, may be given at the discretion of the instructor. No make-ups for quizzes (except for the map quiz) will be given, but a certain number of low quiz grades may be dropped.

Weekly reaction papers will be assigned. In these papers students will summarize and respond to various topics and readings. Included among these reactions papers are a mid-course evaluation and a reaction to the Fox Classics Lecture. The average of these quizzes and short papers will be 20% of your final grade.
