For reading set 3 & 4 specific students will be assigned to lead a discussion on their assigned article(s). These students must first provide a brief oral summary of the major points of the text and then lead a short discussion around a series of posed questions that the student deems central to the text. The students leading the discussion will address specific questions to specific students initially, and then allow other students to chime-in as they feel the need.
All students must read all the assigned readings and come to class prepared to discuss those readings. Students not presenting will be graded on participation in the discussion. Be prepared to be asked questions and to answer in a productive way. If it’s obvious you did not read the text you will lose participation points for the semester.
