The purpose of this assignment is to give you a structure for completing the readings in a thoughtful and timely fashion. Reading logs are required for the readings that are NOT in You May Ask Yourself. You need to complete these for any assigned films listed as well. You will find this assignment to be not terribly time consuming if you complete your logs as you are going along; if you wait until the last minute, it will be quite a lot of work.
Logs will be graded on effort and completion: clear evidence of having meaningfully engaged with the assignment will earn you 80-100%; incomplete or inadequate work with some effort still in evidence will earn you 50-70%; low quality or missing work will earn you 0-40%, depending on the level of completion. If you are not earning scores you are happy with and are not sure why, please check in with me to find out my specific recommendations for improvement.
You must use the chart provided above. We have an enormous class and this helps me to more quickly identify whether you have hit the main points of the exercise.
To add a line in a Word chart, click on the “Tables” menu, then “Insert,” then “Rows Below.” Please begin a fresh chart for each bi-weekly submission (I will always provide a link to the empty chart).
