II. Play-by-Play and Color Commentary

Throughout the semester students will work in pairs to summarize and comment upon the daily reading assignments. Usually one student will provide a play-by-play (summary) of the texts while a second student interjects color commentary, but the pair can divide these tasks as they see fit. These presentations will be graded on a three-point scale. Doing the presentation as scheduled earns the student one point. Additional points will be earned for summarizing and for providing color commentary. Individual students can expect to do between one and three of these presentations, which will count 5% of your final grade.
