made in response to classmates should be constructive, specific, measurable, sensitive, and balanced. As you compose your discussion posts, keep in mind that for each discussion there are 30 points possible, based on your mastery of four categories: (1) substance and depth, (2) use of current readings, (3) timeliness, and (4) grammar. A detailed scoring rubric is available online. Finally, because we meet only online, we need to work together to establish an environment in which you each feel comfortable contributing to the discussion. During the first week of class, I will post guidelines on appropriate netiquette, which we will then discuss and if necessary modify. Quizzes: There are eight non-cumulative, multiple-choice quizzes. Each quiz is worth 20 points. Final Project : This is a research project on a culture or subculture, using class readings to contextualize the group. Each student is responsible for commenting on two classmates’ projects. I will post more details about project requirements online. Evaluation of a student’s performance in this course is guided by the following grading criteria: A (450-500 points): Outstanding achievement of objectives B (400-449 points): Highly satisfactory achievement of objectives C (350-399 points): Adequate achievement of objectives D (300-349 points): Passing, marginal achievement of objectives F (299 points and below): Unsatisfactory achievement

    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.
