19 Final Exam: 12:00-3:00 PM
NOTES: 1) All assignments of individual authors and works include introductions and biographical sketches.
2)Class participation: The instructor assumes that your presence in class means that you have read the assignment. He will call on you from time to time and expects you to contribute to discussion. If it is clear that you are consistently not prepared then your final grade will be lowered. There may be times when pressing duties or emergencies prevent you from completing the reading. Please inform the instructor beforehand so that he will know not to call on you. Always bring your text to class.
3)Attendance Policy: Students are allowed five cuts for whatever reason. After that a letter grade is dropped from the final average. After ten cuts, then two grades are dropped, and so on. Tardiness is counted as a cut.
4)Bad Weather Policy: Class will be held unless there is a media announcement that the University is closed.
5)Writing Intensive Course: This means that special attention in this class is given to writing skills. Consult the syllabus for how this works. In addition, students may voluntarily seek out individual conferences with the instructor. As the syllabus indicates, there will be five writing assignments: Three in class essays (including the exam) and a term paper in two versions. The first version is to be written in response to a thesis you develop out of the primary material. The second version involves both a revision and the addition of secondary research from the library. You are to integrate at least four different secondary sources into your paper. These must be documented properly.
6)The instructor will give unannounced quizzes several times throughout the semester. The cumulative average of these will count 10% of your final grade. The other five assignments will count %90.
