TSOC 3000 Participation Component

Each TSOC 3000 section will involve a “participation” component, worth 15-25% of the semester grade. 

One version of this component, as developed by Dr. Lynne Hamer, TSOC 3000 Course Coordinator, requires students (1) to be present at all class meetings (except one excused absence allowed without question per semester) and to reflect on their participation and learning in a short essay handed in at the end of each class meeting, and (2) to lead discussion of one reading as part of the “Democracy Forum” segment of the course.  The assessment for daily participation and the assignment and rubric for leading the reading are available for use in this course, but it is not required that this assignment be used.  Other instructors’ assignments might be very similar or very different.
