Grades will be based on both classroom participation and a series of written papers. I will enforce the University’s attendance policy in this class. If a student is absent more than three times, the student will receive a “U” (“Unsatisfactory”) in the course.
Grades will be based on the following percentage breakdown: Class participation – 20%, Short written papers – 80%.
80% of your grade will be based on a series of three short written papers assigned intermittently throughout the semester. The writings (4-6 pages, excluding endnotes) will consist of a combination of a research paper, memorandum, and/or an argument piece on various topics that we will cover throughout the course. Each writing will be given equal weight towards your final grade.
