ASSIGNMENTS AND EVALUATION
A contract grading system will be used in this course.
A “B” will be the result of satisfactory completion of the following:
Attendance and participation
Attendance, preparation and participation are key ingredients in a learning process. An atmosphere of safety, trust and respect is encouraged. Careful consideration of the readings, thoughtful questions and comments and an attentive listening stance towards others will, hopefully, contribute to the desired learning. In order to enrich the discussion in class, students will be asked to share what impressed them the most when reading a particular text. Preparation of comments and/or questions will be needed for group sharing. Attendance and participation are of utmost importance to the learning that takes place in class. If, for an exceptional reason, a class must be missed, the instructor should be informed in advance.
