Course Description

Generally lecture and discussion. Classes emphasize techniques of close reading.

Grading Policy

Grading:
Close reading journal (Documents general progress in techniques of close reading) 30%
Paper, 3,000 words 40%
Three close reading exercises 10% each

Attendance: Three absences—excused or unexcused--will result in a lowered grade of 5% for each additional absence. Tardiness or early leaving will be tallied as absences (2 = 1).

Warning: Procrastinators die in this course—especially in the summer, where self-pacing is everything and you become your own master or enemy as the case may be. If you are working and trying to manage a heavy schedule, or if you are raising little ones or going through a divorce or painful separation, your chances of surviving are slender. Keeping pace with the reading is everything.

NO INCOMPLETES WILL BE GIVEN.
