This preview shows page 7 - 10 out of 17 pages.

Required and T.A.s will note it. o If you plan to miss a discussion session, let the TA know by email in advance with a legitimate UCSD-accepted excuse. * Discussion preparation: you will be provided in advance with a few questions to answer in at least one-half but never more than one single-spaced hard-copy page which you will bring to each session. This is to motivate you to attend lecture, read, study, and come into the session with active thoughts. o Randomly about three times in your section the TA will collect your discussion paper and grade it. No paper is graded 0, an extremely weak paper is graded 1, and most papers will be graded 3. o This paper is not expected to be a final considered answer but rather present tentative ideas for discussion. Participation: TAs will assess the quality (of arguments and insights, not viewpoints or positions) and quantity of your oral participation.

8 o ** If you find it difficult to speak in a small group, please try; this is your chance. TAs are encouraging, not discouraging. o If you are extremely averse to speaking in a group, you are welcome to arrange with the TA in advance to record your own thoughts during the session and then provide the notes to them at its end (that can satisfy the participation requirement). Take-Home Exams. You will also be assessed by two take-home exams, one at midterm and one due in finals week. Content o At least one week in advance of the due date we will provide you with three topics to write on. You choose one to answer. Here is an example from a similar course. § Using Thucydides, Appiah, and at least one other text, provide an argument in favor of one of the following: Thrasymachus’, Glaucon’s, or Socrates’ view of justice in The Republic o The midterm will cover Weeks 1-4 of the course. o The final will cover the whole course with more emphasis on Weeks 5-10 Submission o We will use Turnitin.Com through the UCSD Canvas course website. o Exams are to be electronically submitted to Canvas by due dates stated below; any submitted after that time will be considered late. § Late midterm exams will be penalized ½ grade for 5 minutes to 24 hours late, and another ½ grade for each additional week late (absent meeting in advance requirements for exceptions stated next). Lateness will be excused only if a) the T.A. is notified by email at least 24 hours before the due date and time, AND AND b) the student has a university-permitted AND c) properly documented excuse. o The final exam cannot be submitted late except for explicit arrangements made with your TA more than three weeks in advance. § If it emerges that you are unable to timely submit the final exam and can show a UCSD-legitimate excuse that would result in an Incomplete grade. Format o Use one cover page, with only title (if any), the prompt you are answering, your name, and student number.

    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.
