For each written assignment, students are required to turn in a "certification page" signed by two peers that attest to reading the paper and providing constructive feedback. A similar certification is required for oral presentations. The instructor approves topics and will provide feedback on drafts on request.
 
All written and oral assignments meet this condition.
No more than one reaction paper critical essay turned in per month. Longer assignments may be turned in up to the last day of class.
