5) Weekly discussion: a major part of this course. Since there will be no exams, regular attendance is

expected. For any absence beyond the first one, a short paper summarizing and commenting on the readings for that week will be required.

6) Weekly discussion questions and reports: For each weekly set of reading assignments, one

student will be designated in advance as discussion leader. Additional students will be designated in

advance to introduce individual reading assignments for class discussion. These students should prepare discussion questions ahead of time and present them to the class via Learnlink by the Wednesday evening before each class.
Grading will be based approximately 40% on the term project, 20% on each of the short papers, and

20% on class participation and weekly discussions. Please note that grammar and composition will

factor into the grading of all assignments. Be sure to proofread your work before turning it in; use a

spell checker; consult with the Writing Center on campus (www.writingcenter.emory.edu) for further assistance as needed; and use proper means of quoting and crediting your sources (where appropriate) to avoid any suspicions of plagiarism. The Honor Code will apply to all assignments. No plagiarism of any kind will be tolerated. Students must acknowledge, in writing, their familiarity with all rules of appropriate citation and quotation. (These rules will be amply discussed in class.)

Office hours: Tuesdays, 2:00 - 3:30 p.m., or by appointment.
