Determination of Course Grades

  • Reflective essays: 5 points each, for a total of 15 points
  • Descriptive schema: 30 points
  • Classification: 30 points
  • Final reflection: 10 points
  • Class participation: 15 points

100 points total.

Class participation is a vital component of the course. I expect everyone to come to class having read the required material, prepared to critically enage the concepts. Students who articulate reasoned opinions in class and who ask sharp, informed questions will catch my attention and receive higher participation grades.

I will use the following schedule in calculating final grades:

A = 95-100 A- = 89-94 B+ = 84-88 B = 79-83 B- = 74-78 C+ = 69-73 C = 64-68 C- = 60-63 F = <60
