These journal exercises are designed to get you reading actively, writing freely, and thinking critically about the readings and about the topics of the course more generally. They're graded on a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 the highest, and we'll try to have some extra credit options available for people who want to improve the scores given by heartless leaders. I've developed a set of grading standards for these journal assignments that mirrors the standards I use in other classes. Because I expect students in upper-division English classes to show some command of sentence skills, I've posted a couple of items that you should read and understand: Please note that clarifications and schedule changes may be made, and that you are responsible for keeping up with these changes as the quarter progresses.
