Major Assignments

Other Assignments

Discussion Posts

Throughout the semester, you will be asked to respond to assigned readings on the course website’s blog. Overall, the course blog is a way for us to begin conversations about our work that we will continue offline in both small group and whole class discussions. In addition to posting your original post (250-500 words), please also be sure to comment on at least two of your classmates’ posts, which will count towards your participation grade.


There will be several unannounced “pop” quizzes throughout the semester on key terms and concepts covered the assigned readings. Quizzes will be “open note,” but not “open book.”

Peer Review

Group work is an important and regular part of this class. You will be grouped with other students to workshop drafts of your assignments throughout the semester. It is important that you attend class in order to get the most out of your peer review sessions. Your ability to give and receive feedback will be important to the revision process and ultimately to your grade.
