Modalità di verifica dell'apprendimento

Students will be assessed on 1 research essay (50% of the final mark), on reading reports (25% of the final mark) and on a book report (25% of the final mark). The essay is due on Friday May 25 2018 and should be sent to me by e-mail. Students are encouraged to choose their own topic with previous agreement from the lecturer. The research essay will be no longer than 5000 words; it should be analytical and not descriptive. The essay must be the student's own work as plagiarism will not be tolerated. Plagiarism will be treated very seriously, and in order to avoid suspicion, students should reference their work correctly. The reading reports are to be hand-delivered in class (or by email before class) at every lecture. The readings marked with an asterisk are the ones you should do the report on. The report will be no longer than 500 words and it is the summary of the main points the author(s) wish to convey. The book report is due on Friday May 4 2018 and should be sent to me by e-mail. Students will have to demonstrate that they have actually read the book and identify the main arguments the author(s) puts forth. In addition, students will have to highlight the strength and weaknesses of the arguments made in the book by employing specific examples and relying on other readings. The report will be no longer than 2,000 words. A list of books is provided on the last page of the course outline, but you can choose to write the report on a book of your choice with previous agreement from me.
