You will have one hour and a half (90 minutes) to complete each exam, and there are thirty questions on each one. Once in the exam, the best approach is to first answer all of the questions based on what you have retained from the reading, then go back and check your answers in the text with the remaining time. You will not have time, however, to look up each answer if you are unfamiliar with the material. Discussion There are two discussion board questions for each lesson. After reading the selections from the text for each lesson, you should post an answer to each one by the date indicated on the course schedule. The discussion boards consist of your original written responses to questions based on the assigned readings and posted to a “discussion board” or threaded-discussion page. The idea here is to engage in an interactive discussion of specific issues and ideas covered in each of the course modules. The discussion board is essentially our class discussion. It is a place to try out ideas, ask questions, and deepen our understanding of the art works and ideas. Your responses to these questions will be treated as an important demonstration of your understanding of course content as well as your competence in analyzing and discussing specific concepts and issues that are presented in the readings.

Discussion participation will be graded weekly. Clarity, completeness, originality, thoughtful responses to your fellow classmates' postings, effort at fresh insights, and grammatical correctness will all factor into your score on these posts. Your grade will be improved by your moving the discussion ahead with your ideas, observations, any new relevant information from outside the book and posing thoughtful questions. Be sure to respond to others' (and my) questions to you. Your responses to any follow up questions to your postings will help your grade. Research Paper: You are required to write a final research paper which integrates main topics or themes from the text and associated readings and images. For your paper, select one of the topics under "Research Paper: Topics and Guidelines. NOTE: There are two parts to this assignment: "Final Paper Part 1" , which consists of 3 items: your introductory paragraph, including your thesis statement, your research sources, and a one-page outline of how your break down the topic and support your thesis. Your sources must be cited in proper MLA format. Part 1 is due at the end of the 3rd week of class. "Final Paper Part 2", is your final 4-6 page research paper, 1250-1800 words long, due on the last day of the course. Writing Guidelines: All written work should be grammatically correct, properly punctuated, clearly and coherently written, and employ appropriate syntax and semantics. Content: Your writing should be original and demonstrate an ability to analyze ideas and think critically. If you are presenting an argument for a particular thesis, the strength of your evidence or supporting reasons will be considered in assigning the grade. Written work in the papers should exhibit clear and logical integration

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
