PURPOSE OF COURSE To explore through careful reading and discussion the ways in which literature represents the experience of the other arts, and to assess the impact of this experience in various cultural periods.
1. Regular class participation, including discussion, note-taking, and completion of in-class writing assignments, including discussion questions prepared in advance of class meeting (20% of your grade). If you will be absent due to athletics or other approved activities, hand in such assignments before departure, not after return.
2. analytical paper (20%)
3. midterm and final exam (each 20% of grade)
4. research project (20% of grade, see handout for details)
5. academic honesty
a. full citation of research, including not only direct quotes but also the indirect use of ANY intellectual property, including downloads from the Internet.
b.independently conceived and executed work, unless a cooperative project is specifically assigned or approved.
Assignments which fail these criteria will receive no credit.
Attendance policy: I do not officially deduct credit for absences, but you should be aware that missing more than 4 classes (20% of the semester) will make it impossible to earn an A, and will generally pull down your total credit. Late assignments lose one letter grade for each day late. If you will be absent, hand the assignment in early, send it to class with a friend (NOT your only copy!) or consult with me.
Disability policy: Students with documented disabilities should meet with me and Dr. Oyler early in the semester to discuss appropriate accommodations.
The packet of readings for this course is on reserve at Dayton Memorial Library
