Grades will be based on:
|LATN 388||LATN 488|
|Article reports (summary and analysis)||15%||Article reports (summary and analysis)||25%|
|Participation in seminar discussions (insight and substance)||15%||Participation in seminar discussions (insight and substance)||15%|
|Translation exercises||30%||Translation exercises||15%|
|Oral presentation of researched problems (clear overview of work-in-progress)||15%||Oral presentation of researched problems (clear overview of work-in-progress)||15%|
|Written report of researched project (details, analysis, documentation)||25%||Written report of researched project (details, analysis, documentation)||30%|
It is expected that 488 students will undertake more ambitious projects for research and presentation, and hold themselves to a higher standard of Latinity over greater volumes of text -- but the ambition of 388 students is encouraged, too! Research projects will be developed in consultation with the instructor. Expectations will suit students' experience and registration level, but I firmly believe that seminars should be fora for cooperative and collaborative discussions, to which everyone will have interesting insights and valuable contributions to make as we explore and develop ideas together.
Attendance and other policies
Seminars live by discussion. If you're not here, you miss everyone else's learning and insight and deprive them of yours. We only meet once a week. We need you. (If you must miss a seminar meeting, for some dire and documented reason, please let me know as far in advance as possible.)
Any practice of academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, obstructing the work of other students, etc.) perpetrated in this course will result in failure of the coures. Do not do it. In addition, Loyola University requires that "all instances of academic dishonesty must be reported to the chairperson of the department involved," who may be obliged to pursue more severe penalties. See pp. 19-21 of the on-line Undergraduate Studies Catalog and p. 19 of the on-line Graduate Studies Catalog.
