HOW YOUR PERFORMANCE WILL BE EVALUATED

+
+ ((CPLT325_Presentations_Spr_12|PRESENTATIONS REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS)). At the beginning of the course, students will sign up for one 5-7 minute in-class presentation on an author/text of their choosing (if possible). Several days after sign-up, I will post a schedule on the Presentations page. Each session will feature one or more presentations. How to Proceed:Work out your own topic to address regarding the author/text I assign you or ask me in person what might be a good topic to develop on that author/text, and at least a week before you are due to present, email me with as full a draft as possible of what you intend to talk about. I will email you back with some advice. If I suggest developing the draft further, email me a revised version at least one day before your in-class presentation. I won't judge students on their in-class rhetorical skills but rather on prior preparation and consultation as well as on the written draft. How to do well on this assignment: email me as required, and send a final written version. Good critics challenge and pose questions, so craft your responses to invite discussion; aim for spontaneity and a personal touch: use the question as a springboard rather than a prescription; speak up, but don't rush things. (15% of course grade.)
+

((CPLT325_Journals_Spr_12|JOURNALS REQUIREMENT: LINK TO FULL INSTRUCTIONS)). Responses to a choice of questions from the study questions page for each assigned text/author. Four separate journal sets due by email as specified below in the session schedule. Electronic format required. I will not mark journal sets down unless they are late (maximum grade = B), incomplete, or so brief and derivative as to suggest evasion of intellectual labor: they should consist of honest responses to the assigned readings, not "yes-or-no" style answers, quotation of the assigned texts without further comment, or pasted secondary material from Internet sources. How to do well on this assignment: read instructions; complete entries as you go through each text; send sets on time, making sure I verify receipt; respond with a thoughtful paragraph on each chosen question--use your own words and refer to the texts' specific language. (30% of course grade.)

- <b>IN-CLASS QUIZZES.</b> 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.
