In addition to reading the article package assigned to the course, the students are expected to write QAQC-analyses of one of the mandatory chapters for each session. Please write succinctly, preferably no more than half a page per chapter.
QAQC analysis consists of the following steps:
· Quote: Select a quote from the book that summarizes the study, using the words of the author(s).
· Argument: Summarize the main argument of the paper in your own words. No more than a few sentences.
· Question: Pose a question that you would like to discuss in the classroom.
· Connection: Describe how the focal chapter relates to other chapters. No more than a few sentences are required.
The idea of the pre-assignment is to encourage students to read through the assigned reading before the course and it also functions as a springboard for discussion during the course. The instructors will primarily direct discussion to focus on the questions posed by the students.
We strongly recommend that you do the pre-assignment before the contact period to maximize your learning. However, this is not strictly enforced. The deadline for handing in the pre-assignment is after the contact period.
