COURSE REQUIREMENTS

General Requirements: This is a writing-intensive course, in which papers or other written assignments will be required at regular intervals throughout the semester. The course requires developing strong writing skills; attention to lectures; close readings of the assigned pages; the visual observation of actual buildings; and the development of an original research project. Students are responsible not only for the material in the text but also the additional information and themes covered in the lectures. Evaluations will be based on exam performance, attendance, and a research project, consisting of an initial proposal and a inal 10-page paper. In addition, there will be one mandatory field trip. Course performance will be evaluated primarily on a combination of examinations and written assignments, with some weight given to attendance. All papers must be submitted in two forms: a hard copy and an electronic file submitted through the Blackboard site for the course.
