Assessment and permitted materials

Several short written assignments, two versions (first and final) of the seminar paper, very short oral presentations, participation in class discussion.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

1 commentary (written and oral) of a classmate´s first version (Erstfassung) of the seminar paper for 15% (0-15 points)
