Students participating in this unit of study will receive grades representing their level of content competency and the amount of effort demonstrated through both written assignments and level of participation in class. In order to receive full credit for participation students must come to class prepared. In effect all students are expected to complete all outside reading assignments. Compliance will be judged through both quick writes and subsequent in class discussions.
The culminating project shall constitute fifty percent of the student’s grade over the six-week period: the writing piece thirty-five percent and other media/presentation component fifteen percent. Studentship and in-class participation shall reflect twenty percent. The remaining thirty percent will be divided amongst homework and quiz grades.
