To prepare for our seminar discussion you need to complete these tasks. These instructions apply to all of our seminars unless you specifically hear otherwise from me:
- Annotations on the article assigned to you on Perusall. You need to make 4 substantial annotations each week: see here for more specific instructions. You are annotating the article with a small group of other students, and you are expected to interact with each other on Perusall during the annotation process.
For each Seminar assignment on Perusall, there is one PDF file that has four scholarly articles. I have labelled each article in the PDF "Group 1", "Group 2", etc. Your group membership changes each week, so you need to look up your group number on this spreadsheet before doing each week's reading. Then once you know what reading group you are in for that week, you can read and annotate the article labelled with your group number for that week's seminar. For example, in Seminar 3 Shawn is in group 1, so when he looks at the PDF in Perusall for Seminar 3, he will read and annotate the group 1 document only, and he can ignore the other documents in the PDF. (2/4 points)
- A one page summary of the same article that you annotated, ready to submit in hard copy at the end of the seminar class. The requirements for good seminar notes are detailed here. Proxy submissions and rush-into-class-at-the-last-minute submissions will not be graded. Note that your two lowest scores for seminar notes will be dropped from the calculation of your final grade, so you can miss two seminars with no penalty, no need to explain or make it up (1/4 points).
And of course you need to participate in the seminar discussion in class. For more on how to do that well, see here. (1/4)
