Class Activities

Throughout the semester, there will be participating in many class activities. Following each one, you will complete and submit via Canvas a "quiz" where you will a) explain what you learned from the activity and b) write two specific facts, findings, or theories you learned in the class that relate to the activity.


Below is the list of planned activities. The list may be updated as the semester progresses. Note that due dates for each are posted in Canvas. 

Of the activities listed, you need to complete 15. If you complete (and pass) additional activities, I will add 1% for each one to your final grade in the class. Extra credit is capped at 5%. Note that this is the only extra credit available.
