Assignments

The Assignments for Western Civilization are as follows:

BOOKLET: In-Class Reflections, Free-writing, Participation and Activities………… 30%

  • These in-class reflections will be based upon the assigned readings, or on discussions we have in class. You will be given a booklet at the beginning of the term and will regularly be asked to write short responses (paragraph length) about some aspect of the class. These must be completed during class time.
  • Two or three times in the semester, I will collect the booklet. You can expect to write in the booklet about once a week, meaning that the individual responses are worth about 1-2% of your grade. Missing one response will not affect your grade. The total marks for these in-class responses will add up to 20%, with the remaining 10%  coming from the following assignments, which will also be completed in the booklet:
