Group Work

Every other week, you will meet with a small group of students to discuss the week's readings. During each small-group session, most of the members of the group will write responses, which the whole group will read in preparation for class. The other student will lead the group discussion, record attendance at the group meeting, and prepare a short summary of the group's discussion. This group leader for the day does not need to do a regular response for the week.

At the end of the term, every student will complete an evaluation of every member of the group's participation in these sessions, including his or her own. These evaluations will describe each participant's reliability, coherence, attentiveness, creativity, and leadership.
