Class Participation and Group Work Grade - Final

Class Participation and Group Work Grade - Midterm

The syllabus explains that 10% of your course grade will be determined by "class participation and contribution to group work." This is the second of two times during the semester that you are receiving a grade in this category. Your grade for the "assignment" encompasses the following items:
  • Your contributions to class discussions, both positive and negative. In other words, thoughtful comments will help you, while comments that are off-topic or disrespectful of your fellow students will hurt you.
  • Your attentiveness in class, especially to your peers' presentations. Remaining awake, alert, and focused will help you, while sleeping, web surfing, or carrying on side conversations will hurt you.
  • Your contribution to your team's visual promotional mailer assignment, as reported by your teammates.
This grade will be averaged with all of the shorter assignments (journal entries, revision workshops, etc.) you have completed for this course, although this grade is "weighted" a bit heavier than each of those small assignments. You do not need to submit anything for this "assignment," because you have been earning it throughout the second half of semester.
