- Keep in mind:
** the 6Cs: courtesy, competency, consistency, cooperation, communication, and creativity.
We expect work that will produce a professional and competitive product in a real market. We also expect that even our most creative workers will recognize throughout the semester an effective product presentation depends on good work standards from every member of the team. Team morale and expectations have a great deal to do with enforcing works standards collectively. Time to learn that process.
At work, you aren't given tests. Neither are you here. But you are expected to demonstrate your competency and participation. Each class or volunteer participation with us is a contract job to which you commit for the semester. We not only expect the work to be done, but we also expect you to find effective ways to let us know what you are doing, and consequently, that your final work product will be a good one.
If, for whatever reason, your work is not meeting our production standard, we are sure that you will be in touch with us to either seek employee assistance or advice. One hot clue that you may be slipping is if your name appears no where on blogs, shared readings, on small discussion groups, and if we haven't heard from you. ** Bloom and Krathwohl's Taxonomy of Learning: latent learning, recognition, recall, application, analysis, evaluation, and synthesis.
Grades are interactive and interdependent. You are responsible for telling me what you have accomplished, and verifying it either in class, in person, in an email dialogue, or meeting with me. The first eight weeks is worth one-third of your course grade, while the second eight weeks constitutes two-thirds of your course grade. The minimum requirements for a course grade of "C" are: 1) completion of all weekly discussion questions, 2) participatory class attendance (not only attending but participating in class discussions), and 3) at least a "C" average in pop quiz grades (to note "do not count" on a majority of pop quizzes is below average). For an explanation, refer to the course syllabus and read and Grades.
Self-Assessment Questions for Visual Projects:
- List the names of the individuals in your group. What did you do exactly for this visual project? (If in a group, explain the division of labor and your individual contribution to this visual project). What small item did you create to "give away" to those visiting your visual project?
- Explain in depth, how your visual project specifically relates to the course (i.e., the readings, the documentaries, class discussions, major concepts). Demonstrate how your visual project relates to "theory, policy, practice". What did you learn?
- Assess how the 6Cs apply to your visual project, with special attention on competence and creativity. What is your visual project self-assessment (provide a letter grade) ___ ? Explain why this particular grade.
Readings for All UWP Classes:
- "Who's Habermas? Why Habermas?"
- Metaphor and Theory links to "The Blind Men and the Elephant" which applies to several concepts discussed in both classes. Eric K. mentioned this metaphor during one of our class discussions in "Law and Society."
