* When leading class discussion you and a classmate will be responsible for outlining the chapter(s) assigned as reading for that day in 30-40 minutes. You may use whatever format you choose, and you should be prepared to answer questions from your classmates. You must each introduce 3-5 new vocabulary terms from the chapter and provide their definitions (these may be given by the author, or you may have to look them up in the Oxford English Dictionary in the library). You should also discuss the sources used by the author in the chapter(s) and comment on their usefulness in your opinion. If you have questions you should see Dr. Myers the day before you are to lead the discussion.

Without question you should be in class every day, ready to learn. Should you fall ill, break your leg, or have another serious dilemma that prevents your attendance, you are responsible for politely asking a classmate if you can HAND-COPY their notes (do not forget to say thank you!). Additionally, you should set up a time to go over missed material with Dr. Myers at the earliest possible opportunity. Although no portion of your course grade is allotted to participation, it is expected of all Cornell students and, to be perfectly honest, the more you discuss the information you are learning, the better you will learn it. Note: All assignments must be completed for you to earn a passing grade in this course.
