1. Attendance and Participation (30%); 2. Two Short Papers (40%); 3. Final Examination (30%)
I. Class Attendance and Participation in Class and the Tutorials (30%)
Regular attendance in both the Lectures and the Tutorials is mandatory. You are expected to actively participate in tutorial discussions and (where appropriate) in class. You should demonstrate knowledge of the assigned readings through your questions and comments in tutorials. I have tried to keep the required readings below 50 pages per week.
2. Two Short Papers (40%)
You are required to write two short papers analyzing themes from the course. Each paper should be 1000 words long. Each will count for 20% of your final grade. I will distribute paper topics/questions two weeks before each paper is due.
3. Final Examination (30%)
The final examination will be held on November 30th at 9:00am. It will include a broad selection of short answers. It is designed to test your retention of key thinkers, texts, questions, and concepts and your ability to explain them coherently. You should be prepared to answer questions on any topics covered in class, the tutorials, and the assigned readings.
