(30% of course grade.)((CPLT325_Final_Prep|FINAL EXAM REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS)). The exam will consist of substantive id passages (30% of exam), mix-and-match questions (match phrase or concept x to speaker/play y; 30% of exam), and key lecture points paired with substantive quotations from the assigned texts (40% of exam). There will be more choices than required responses. Books and notes allowed for all sections, but no laptops. Students may not share books or notes during the exam. Exam date: see below. <u>How to do well on this assignment</u>: read the online prep. sheet; take good notes and ask questions/make comments; above all, enjoy the works rather than thinking of them only as "test material." If you take pleasure in the assigned texts' language, attend to the sophistication with which they have been structured, and reflect on the intellectual/moral/spiritual value you derive from them, you are likely to earn a good exam grade. (25% of course grade.)IN-CLASS QUIZZES. No need for further instructions here: we will have a number of brief in-class quizzes (usually 5-10 minutes) that will explore your readiness to participate in discussions about our assigned texts; both basic plot and structure considerations and thematic issues that require some independent thought are possible question material. (10-15% of course grade.)[mailto:325@ajdrake.com|EMAILING JOURNALS, TERM PAPER TO 325@AJDRAKE.COM]. Email journals and term paper as attachments. Don't send more than one document in the same email.
