Class Participation (20%)

I will base your class participation grade on the frequency and quality of your contribution to classroom discussion. Positive contributions consist not merely of answering the professor's questions. They also include:

Throughout the semester, I may call on various groups of students to make short presentations concerning the reading. These exercises will not only teach you how to teach your peers, but they will also help you learn how to speak sensibly and coherently. My assessment of your performance during these presentations will also influence your class participation grade.

Furthermore, if you are a student, your job consists of learning. I expect you to come to class prepared to learn.
