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 one 5-minute informal presentation. On the first day, I will pass around a sheet so that students can indicate a favorite author on our syllabus. Within a few days, I will post a schedule on the Presentations Page. Each session will feature a few such presentations, the content of which is to be based on a prior discussion (by email or in person) between the instructor and the presenter, who should, therefore, contact me at least one week in advance of the presentation (preferably earlier). 10% of course grade.

Journals Requirement. Students will write an informal journal entry on each author. Installments (each consisting of several authors bundled into one electronic document) will be due by email anytime on class day Weeks 4, 8, 12, and Final Exam Day or as specified thereafter. Electronic format. 30%.

Term Paper Requirement. Rough draft suggested, final draft (5-7 pg.) due by exam day or as specified towards the bottom of the syllabus page. Follow MLA guidelines. Graduate papers should respond to primary texts and secondary criticism; for undergraduates research is optional. See Resources/Guides/Writing Guides: MLA, Grammar, Deductive, Citing, Analyzing, and Editing. 30%.

Final Exam Requirement. The exam will consist of substantive id passages, short questions requiring 1- or 2-paragraph responses, and one comparative essay. There will be more choices than required responses. Books and notes allowed for all sections. Exam date Thursday, Dec. 14th 5:00-6:50 p.m. 30%.
