It is essential that you pace yourself on the readings. You'll need to average about 60 pp. a session. By all means read ahead.
The work is balanced between papers and exams as follows: paper 1 (15%) paper 2 (20%) paper 3 (20%); midterm (15%) final (20%); participation [coming prepared, ready and able to talk in class] and quizzes (10%). I grade on the full plus/minus scale.
Attendance: You are allowed 3 absences. If you are absent, unexcused, more than 3 times over the course of the semester, your absences will count progressively against your final grade, as a significant part of your participation grade.
Plagiarism: Anyone convicted will receive an F for the paper, or the course at my discretion. And yes, I have caught people in the past.
Late Papers: Papers received ONE class session late will be accepted but docked a full grade. No late papers accepted after one class session late.
