This course has two types of assignments, which may vary from quarter to quarter. They include experiential learning activities and written assignments.
The learning activities are designed to illustrate the course content, and to provide students with an opportunity to participate in class discussions. Some of these activities will require that students bring something to class to discuss. Others will be built around problems posed in class. These activities are presented on this Web site via the link below. This link leads to a page that describes all of the experiential learning activities. Exact dates for these activities are listed on the syllabus.
The written assignments this term consist of two papers with opportunities to prepare a draft for feedback and make revisions.. These papers are designed to assist students in learning the course material and in developing professional writing skills. Writing assignments are described in detail via the links below. For each writing assignment, a grading form has been created (links below) to assist students with their understanding of the assignment and distribution of points. The points are based on a writing rubric that provides grading criteria; this rubric applies to all written assignments and is accessible via the link below. Also available via the link below is information concerning how students may rewrite papers after initial grading. These instructions must be followed when submitting revisions. Due dates for writing assignments are presented in the syllabus.
