Welcome back to seminar!

Please welcome your CASA Peer Mentor!

  • Presentation, Sections 460, 461, and 453

Exam 1

Results and common errors


Historical Argument Papers

These will be graded over the coming weeks. Those who are in danger of failing HIST and who may need to drop the class will be graded first.

The paper grade will not factor into your midterm grade for HIST or seminar.


Midterm Grades

Due on March 29!

What will factor into the UCCP midterm grade:

  • Introduce Yourself, 15 pts
  • Press & Experts, 20 pts
  • Three Potential Topics, 15 pts
  • Mid-Term Reflection, 150 pts
  • FYRC Proposal, 50 pts
    • Grand total: 250 pts

THIS IS NOWHERE NEAR THE 1000 OVERALL POINTS FOR THIS CLASS. This is not a good indicator of your actual position in the class, although if you have a grade of zero at this point in the semester, the highest grade you can make in Seminar is a C.
