Summary of Goals and
Your final grade will be determined in the following way:
There are no exams in this course. Instead there will be two
unit quizzes (lasting about 30 minutes),
as well as shorter quizzes (lasting less than ten minutes)
both announced and unannounced. Each
student (as an individual or in a group) will be expected to make regular short,
five-minute presentation on course materials. There will also be in-class writing assignments, group work and other in-class activities. The average
of these activities will be 60% towards your final grade.
Short Writing Assignments
There will be one short response paper every week, based
upon topics discussed in class. These papers will include accurate and specific
reference to course materials as well as your own response to this material.
A suggested topic will always be provided by the instructor, but you are also
invited to use any other topic of your choice appropriate to the course material
for that week. These weekly papers must be at least 600-words in length (two full pages) and follow
Prof. Sienkewicz' Writing Guidelines.
There will also be a mid-course
evaluation. The instructor reserves the right not to
accept any paper submitted after the due date. The average of these writing
assignments will be 40% of your final grade.
This material has been published on the web by Prof. Tom Sienkewicz for his
students at Monmouth College. If you have any
questions, you can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
