COURSE DESCRIPTION:

This course will provide an opportunity to explore the history of childhood and youth in Canada. 

Students will write three papers. Weekly reading, preparation for discussion, and participation in discussion will become an important part of the learning opportunity. This is reflected in the assessment system.

COURSE POLICIES:

Weekly Participation & Preparation (10%):  Students are asked to read chapters, write answers to questions and submit them via OWL prior to the weekly discussions.  Doing the homework on-time, bringing it to class, and volunteering your answers will make up one-tenth of the course mark.  Meeting a minimal participation threshold is necessary to avoid penalties (see below), and participating fully will prepare you to write strong papers.

Minimum Attendance Requirement:  Students must attend a minimum of 6 of the 11 sessions; failure to do so will result in a 10% penalty in the course.  The attendance requirement includes the expectation that students will schedule all appointments and other responsibilities to avoid conflicts with the course.  If health issues demand a  prolonged absence, or if you require other academic accommodation, you must meet with the course instructor in-person and provide documentation to the Dean's Office. 

Due Dates:  Penalties for late papers may be avoided if extensions are requested in advance.  Otherwise, a two-mark deduction will be taken for each of the first three days late, and a 5-mark deduction for each day thereafter.  Two-weeks after the due date or at the conclusion of the term (which ever is first) a zero will be assigned for the paper.
