Course Requirements/Evaluation Criteria:

A weekly quiz, with the 5 worst scores dropped and the remainder curved for a grade that will count 20% towards the final grade for the course. The quizzes will always be short-answer and worth up to ten points each. There will always be two additional questions that must be answered: 6) What one idea did you take away from class today? and 7) What one question do you still have?

A preliminary proposal for your project with bibliography and venue, and a final proposal with bibliography. These will count 20% towards your final grade.

A presentation on one of the final nine episodes of Ulysses (20%).

A draft of your project (20%).

The final project (20%).

Your project may be a traditional paper intended for presentation at a scholarly conference in Literature or History, a creative work with commentary, or a teaching unit.
