Overview:  Your grade in this class will be determined by your understanding of the reading, your formal writing, and your class participation in the Discussion List.  For your own enrichment, you might want to consider that setting aside time for careful reading of the texts and participation in the Discussion List are critical to your learning and success in the class!
