Book Review

A five page essay review should be submitted covering a book read independently for this class. In addition, a ten minute oral presentation will be given to class. All papers are to be formatted with Times 12 point font or equivalent, double spaced with 1 1/2 inch margines.

Course Paper

The goal of this course is for every participant to develop and state a personal theory of instruction. As such, this paper should be in development from the first class meeting. As new theories are introduced and discussed, they should be added to (or discarded from) each personal paper. Work in progress will be read at agreed upon intervals throughout the semester.

The final paper should be between 15 and 20 pages length. All papers are to be formatted with Times 12 point font or equivalent, double spaced with 1 1/2 inch margines.

Tests and Examinations

Weekly quizzes and challenges will help give practice and anchor the readings. These quizzes will count towards the Participation grade.

A midterm performance exam will cover course topics to this point. It will consist of a Web assignment to be completed within one week. Resources and design guidelines will be given.

A final performance exam will encompass all course topics. Students will be asked to perform various tasks in line with the course objectives. This exam will be given during ODU’s final exam week.
