will be three closed book, in-class identification and short essay exams
in this course. Each exam will be worth 30 points. All exams, including
the final exam, will be non-cumulative (covering the lectures and chapters
assigned for each section). Questions will be drawn from both the lectures
and the text. Approximately one week before the exam, I will provide
you with a study guide that includes a list of sample questions.
You should complete two course projects. For each due date, you have a choice between two different project assignments. Each course project is worth 20 points and is more fully described in separate handouts. You can work with a partner to collect and analyze any relevant data but each person must submit their own (independently written) paper. If you do work with a partner, you should double the number of participants required for the project.
There will be opportunities to complete short response papers after participating in class exercises. These opportunities contribute to a participation score (which is only 10% of the final grade.)
I also will ask you to write a reflection paper about implicit prejudice that will build upon material that we wil discuss in class.
