For the group presentations (see above), every member of the group will receive the same grade. I will grade the quality of the handout, of the PPT, and of the presentation.
Students are required to write a term paper (Seminararbeit). Details including structure, layout and grading criteria will be announced during class. The term papers are due on April 15th, 2013. Term papers will only be accepted in printed form (not electronically). They must be turned in either directly at my office or via my mail box in the secretariat. A delay in term paper submission of up to 1 week will result in downgrading by one full grade. A delay in term paper submission of up to 2 weeks will result in downgrading by two full grades, and so forth.
The final grade for the course will be calculated as follows:
Term paper: 50%
Group presentations: 50% (25% each)Please note: The term paper is an indispensable component of the seminar, in particular as it serves as a direct preparation for the MA thesis. In order to finish the course, students must have their term paper graded with at least 4. Students who fail to submit a term paper will be graded 5 (fail) for the seminar.
