The final grade will be a combination (more or less with equal weights)
of paper critiques, leading discussion(s) in class and class
participation. You can work in pairs for discussing the papers in advance
in preparation for writing critiques and class participation. If you work
in pairs, you will alternate for writing the critiques. Email the
critiques to me by 3pm the day before the first in-class discussion of the
paper. These critiques will be anonymized and sent to the rest of the
class. Please read them before the class. The critiques will not be
explicitly graded, but you will get feedback if there is something
remarkable about it. The person leading the in-class discussion of a paper
does not need to write a critique, and instead will meet with me a few
days before the discussion.
Please read Mike
Bond's instructions that he used in a course with similar mechanics,
but for this course take them only as guidelines, not strict rules, in
case you are not sure about how to proceed.
