Google Doc Reading Notes (20%)

We will do a good bit of reading in this class, and I will ask you to take notes on those readings. Each student will maintain a Google document for reading notes. These documents will serve multiple purposes. First, they provide you with a space to take notes on the readings and mark places where you have questions to ask during class. Second, these documents will demonstrate to me that you are keeping up with and engaging with the readings. Finally, you will be able to use a printed version of this document during the midterm and final exams. For all of these reasons, it is to your benefit to take detailed reading notes.

Every Friday at 9:00am, I will check in on your Google doc to ensure that you have taken notes on that week's reading.

Each of these weekly "check ins" is worth 1.5 points, and they cannot be made up at a later date.

I am not grading you on the quality of your notes, but I am checking to see that you've made a good faith effort to take detailed notes on each chapter. Again, these check ins are primarily to make sure that you are keeping up with the reading, and the grading is credit/no credit. However, keep in mind that it is to your benefit to keep detailed reading notes as this will help you immensely on the exams.
