Avaluació i qualificació

Activitats d'avaluació:

Descripció de l'activitat Avaluació de l'activitat % Recuperable
Lectures and Discussion Students are required to do all the assigned readings before each class and come prepared with notes and questions from the readings. It is compulsory that students come to class prepared to discuss the assigned readings, ask questions about the readings, and engage your peers in informed discussion about the assigned readings/topic. Active participation in class discussions reflecting an understanding and synthesis of assigned readings is expected. 25 No
Oral multicultural autobiographical presentation Students should be able to reflect, explore and answer the question “How have I come to be who I am?” considering and explaining the influence of broad factors such as ethnicity, socioeconomic background, gender, sexual orientation, language, and religious influences. 20 No
Pop Culture Essay Students will be asked to choose an audiovisual product (film, TV series, etc.) and produce a short essay (c.1500 words) in APA format identifying and analyzing how minority characters are portrayed in it. Insightfulness and accuracy of such analysis is expected. 20 No
Final paper Students will be asked to produce a paper of at least 12 pages in length in APA format through which they explore one of the topics of the course in greater depth. In particular, the purpose of the paper is to take a problem in a certain professional environment that has an issue related to diversity at its core. Students are expected to describe, using evidence and writing from a scholarly perspective, what we know about the problem (literature review) and what we still do not know, making the case for additional research or a rethinking (e.g., for a policy). The exact nature or focus of the student’s paper will vary. Students will determine their focus and paper structure in consultation with the professor. 35 No


- Attendance and participation are vital in this course. Justified absences will be considered when discussed with the professor; you have, however, one free absence without justification nor penalty. Students missing more than one class without justification will receive no credit for the course.

- Plagiarism or cheating is unacceptable under any circumstances. Plagiarism means using another's words, ideas, materials or work without properly acknowledging and documenting the source. Students are responsible for knowing the rules governing the use of another's work or materials and for acknowledging and documenting the source appropriately. Although collaboration with peers is encouraged, all work that students ultimately submit in this course must be their own in their own words. Failure to meet this expectation will result in failure of the course.
