Educational Philosophy: This is not a typical "book" type course where you are assigned readings and then discuss them in class. The structure of the course is heavily reliant on viewing films, class presentations and illustrated lectures - you can't afford to miss class and stay home and read about what you missed! "Extra Credit" opportunities will be available during the course of the semester.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
A comprehensive final exam of 100 multiple choice questions derived from the first three exams. The majority of the questions are vocabulary or concept based. The exam is worth 100 points out of 500 points in the course (20%).
Class Assessment: Students will be evaluated on the basis of their performance on a number of tests, quizzes, extra credit projects and a final exam. All tests and quizzes will be objective type tests (no essays). None of the tests or quizzes will be comprehensive.
Grading: Total points acquired + extra credits will be divided by total number of tests/quizzes given. A = 90%+, B = 80-89%, C=70-79%, D = 60-69%, F = 59% or less. Graqdes are criterion rather than norm referenced!
Late Submission of Course Materials: Students have ONE CLASS PERIOD to make up a missed test/quizz. No extra credit materials will be accepted after their due date!
