2 Grading Method Your grade for the course will be based on three different types of evaluation. First, I will offer twelve (12) multiple-choice quizzes. I will drop the two quizzes with your lowest scores. Thus, your performance on ten of the twelve quizzes will be used to assess your understanding of the basic concepts and definitions covered in the textbook. Second, You will complete one chapter assignment that will involve the preparation of a summary document and one public speaking class presentation. Third, you will complete one (1) critical book review for your final paper using one of the three books that I have selected for you this semester. Each quiz will cover a specific chapter of the text. Fifteen (15) multiple-choice questions will be included on each test. Each question is worth two points, for a total of 30 points per test. Thus, the total amount of grade points that you can earn from ten of the twelve multiple-choice quizzes is 300 points. All make-up quizzes will be held on Monday November 26 (Quizzes 1-6) and Wednesday 27 (Quizzes 7-12). Maximum of 5 quizzes. For your class presentation, you will be assigned one chapter selected from chapters 10-14 in the textbook. On the day of your scheduled presentation (the first day we cover the material for your assigned chapter), you will provide me with a copy of a summary document that you have written in order to prepare for your class
