Each week do this 1 take the online quizzes after you

This preview shows page 3 - 5 out of 6 pages.

Each week do this: 1. Take the online quizzes – AFTER you have done the reading of the text and the lecture notes. EXAM & FINAL: The exams and final will be non-cumulative and will cover lecture of the sections covered since the last exam. For example: Your test will be on the material up to the exam. The test will consist of multiple choice and possibly matching. The tests will test factual knowledge from the quizzes, as well as from the lecture notes I have posted. You should refer to prior quizzes for guidance in preparing for the exams in addition to the notes you have taken from the text. The tests will be 1 hour and 30 minutes, so you should have enough time to finish them. Again, however, you won’t have enough time if you skip the reading and just try to look up the answers. You will need to read and study the material. For exam week do this: 1. Review my lecture notes on both the text and the extra philosophers. 2. Study past quizzes for some of those questions will be on the test. 3. Review the study guide provided. 4. Take the exam in the time allotted. DISCUSSION POSTINGS: The short essay postings will ask questions relating to the reading and your responses should be based on what you read, synthesizing points into an argument beginning with a thesis. This should be based on all literature that we have read. Your responses must be 400-500 words long. Answering the questions within your essay and applying the readings is what will earn you full credit. BS-ing won’t count as your posting. Most often you will have two weeks to respond to an essay posts which will incorporate the readings from those two weeks. I want to see your thoughts about the writings and about the topics in our culture that we will cover. In addition I want to see application of the knowledge you have been presented so you must cite from your text plus other sources. I may throw in some questions and comments for clarification, but mostly the discussions should be your opportunity to learn about each other and see what others think. You are required to answer the question and respond to someone else’s writings intelligently. At some points in the discussions I may ask you to more

    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.
