Participation & Presentations:
Student attendance is mandatory. If a student is absent more than one week without a valid excuse, an F grade will automatically apply to her/his overall class grade. All students are expected to have read the assigned readings and come to class prepared for active participation and discussion. The participation grade is an assessment of student’s active listening and verbal involvement in class discussions: explanation, commentary, and questions/responses roles. For that purpose, attendance, participation, and oral presentations will be awarded 10% each of the overall evaluation.
Book chapters and articles Review and Presentations:
All students are invited to review and present at least one reference from the mandatory reading list related to the course topics during the semester. The reviews should include a summary of the article or chapter of book and its main arguments and situate it in the literature covering international phenomena related to Islam in Morocco in particular and in North Africa in general.
There will be two exams during the semester with the grade value of 25% each of the overall grade.
Students will also complete one Final term paper graded at 20% based on a topic approved by the instructor. A description in approximately 100 words is required.
