Note: all links have been removed from this archival copy, but the author questions (bundled according to subject/period) and study guides referenced below can be found in relevant sections of the Resource Gallery. Instructions pages for journals, presentations, etc. were similar to those available in my current courses. MP3 audio of class sessions for selected courses is still available in the Audio Archive. My blog entries for most courses are available from the Blogs Index.

Course Policies. Please review early in the semester.

Presentations Requirement. Students will sign up for three* 5-minute in-class presentations on assigned authors of their choosing (if possible). I will provide presenters with specific questions from the online journal questions and will post a schedule on the Presentations page. Each session will feature one or more presentations. Required: At least one week before you present, contact me to discuss your ideas. After you have given your in-class presentation, email me a version of your comments and I'll post it as a new entry to the appropriate collective students' blog. Other students may, if they wish, access the entries as they're added by visiting the appropriately named link on the Course Blogs Index Page. Your emailed version should resemble your class comments, but need not be identical. (Please avoid indentation and bulleted lists.) 20% of course grade. *Four if small class size warrants.

Journals Requirement. Responses to a choice of questions on each author. Due by email anytime on class day Week 6, Week 12, and May 18th. Electronic format required. Acceptable late, but not for full credit. (30%)

Term Paper Requirement. By April 14th (Week 13), a one-paragraph description addressing the topic and argument of the projected paper will be due by email. (Full rough drafts are also encouraged.) Not providing this description on time may affect the final draft grade. Please read the term paper instructions carefully since they contain the prompt, some possible topics, and advance draft comments. I reserve the right to require proof of the final paper's authenticity, such as notes or an early draft. Final draft (5-7 pages; graduates 10-15 pages) due by exam day or as specified towards the bottom of the syllabus page. Follow MLA guidelines. CSUF academic integrity policies apply (see UPS 300.021). For undergraduates, research is optional; graduate papers should respond to primary texts and secondary criticism; see CSUF Library. See Resources/Guides/Writing Guides: MLA, Grammar, Deductive, Citing, Analyzing, and Editing. (30%)

Final Exam Requirement. The exam will consist of substantive id passages, mix-and-match questions (match phrase or concept x to author/text y), and short questions requiring a few paragraphs in response. There will be more choices than required responses. Books and notes allowed for all sections. No laptops during the exam. Exam date: see below. (20%)

Emailing Journals/Paper/Presentations to cplt324_at_ajdrake.com. Email journals, presentations, and term paper as attachments. Don't send more than one document in the same email. Label subject lines appropriately: "CPLT324 Journal 1, Jane Smith" etc. You can paste journal sets into a regular email or send them as an attachment. (Journal "sets" include responses to questions about several authors; do not send entries on each author in a given set separately -- responses on the relevant authors should be combined into one document.) Contact me if you don't receive an email confirmation within approximately three days.
