Over the readings
On odd-numbered weeks, on Fridays, we will have a short quiz at the beginning of class. I will ask you to summarize and analyze readings from the two previous weeks–usually I will pick two authors’ works.
This is just a ham-handed way to encourage students to do the readings. Sorry. Quizzes will be graded based on whether you’ve been able to demonstrate that you:
- Actually did the reading, and;
- Got something of value out of it.
Each quiz will be worth 10 points, 50 points overall.
