Assignments and Grades:
This course has a writing flag, so you should expect to write regularly during the semester and to complete substantial writing projects. You will receive feedback on your writing from your peers and from me, and you will have the opportunity to revise two major assignments so long as you meet the minimum requirements for doing so. Major writing assignments will include a visual analysis, a researched analysis of a text, and a counterargument with a proposal. You will also be responsible for graded, semi-weekly reading discussion posts on the canvas discussion forum. Because this is a writing flag course, peer reviews are required for the major writing assignments. If you are going to miss an in-class peer review, you must arrange with at least one of your generous classmates to exchange peer reviews in Canvas outside of class by the due date, and you must inform me ahead of time.
