Educational Philosophy: No matter where people's interests in reading lie, being able to read and critically evaulate and interpret text is crucial to success in today's society. In order to facilitate students' critical thinking, I will enage students in classroom discussion and encourage them to consider varying opinions and styles of writing.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The Core Assessment for En 234 is a critical paper consisting of no fewer than 5-8 pages of original literary analysis using personal insights and primary and secondary sources. MLA documentation, including a Work Cited page, is also required. A minimum of 3 sources are required, and must include a range of types of sources, including online and traditional print sources. The core assessment must account for no less than 25 % of the final grade.
The rubric for this assignment is included below.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Students' understanding of classroom texts will be assessed through quizzes composed of short answer and essay questions. Students' understanding and ability to reflect on classroom texts will be assessed through a final paper. A grading rubric for the final paper will be given to students in class.
Late Submission of Course Materials: If you must be absent, please call or email me as soon as possible. If you miss something, make arrangements with me to get your assignments in at the earliest possible time. If you miss assignments due to an unexcused absence, you will receive a grade of "zero."
Classroom Rules of Conduct: During classroom discussions, students are expected to treat each other with respect. Interruptions are to be kept minimal, and students are to enter the classroom with the understanding that everyone has a different interpretation and opinion and that no opinion is better than another. Students are to be careful while eating and drinking in the rooms and should throw away any trash they have before they leave.
