Weekly Participation & Preparation (15%): Students are asked to read chapters, prepare questions and prior to the weekly discussions. Doing the homework on-time, bringing it to class, and volunteering your answers will make up 15 percent 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.
