Phil 237: Philosophy of Mind Guidelines for Collaboratively Written Term Paper On Tuesday, March 13th (the Tuesday after Spring Vacation), we will discuss and decide upon term paper topics. I will demonstrate how to access and use the Wiki software that will allow small groups to collaborate on writing the term papers. PLEASE ATTEND THIS CLASS!!!!

The final grade for the paper will be based on these evaluations. I will lower the Term Paper Grade for any student whose collaboration is evaluated as poor by her Group members. The Term Paper project is worth 50% of your final grade for the course. By Thursday, March 22 Work together to do the following: 1.
