The exams are open-book, open-notes. The midterm exam is a take-home exam. The final exam takes place at the officially scheduled time: 3:00 pm on May 7.
Homework assignments will be distributed in class, not online.
Paper Topic: Your paper can be on any topic covered in the course readings, but the topic requires pre-approval from the instructor. You must ask for approval by submitting a written statement of your thesis (what you are trying to prove in your paper) to the instructor no later than March 11. (In other words, before spring break.)
Late work will be heavily penalized. For extensions on due dates, you must contact the instructor in advance of the due date.
