Grading of Commentaries
For each class, students will receive two grades, one for each reading commentary. The assigned grade for the submitted reading commentary will be one of the following:
- Complete Plus: The commentary is detailed and the included prompts demonstrate a deep understanding of the intellectual content of the reading.
- Complete: The commentary is sufficiently detailed and the included prompts demonstrate a sufficient understanding of the intellectual content of the reading.
- Incomplete: The commentary either lacks the expected components or provides incorrect, incomplete, or shallow details about the reading.
The two lowest reading grades will be dropped. There is no deadline extension policy for reading assignments and they are expected to be submitted by 7 p.m. the day before the class. However, life is full of surprises, which requires flexibility. So if, for any reason, it becomes challenging to submit the assignments in time, students should reach out to the instructor to discuss possible accommodations. Students' health and happiness are the most important goals, so if there are any concerns about this class, the instructor is always available to chat.
