Participation: Participation will be assessed through attendance, participation in class discussion, and performance on group work and small in-class writing assignments. Your demonstration of engagement with course readings and screenings (i.e., being able to discuss and bring in examples from the screenings to class discussion) are part of your participation grade. If it becomes clear that not everyone is keeping up with the screenings, I may institute pop quizzes on the screenings and/or readings.
