*  Students who opt for oral presentations for the research project must submit a rough outline instead of a sample draft on October 27.

   An in-class brief paper will most likely be completed on November 10 and 17.  Students who are absent on either date must make special arrangements either before or within 48 hours after each class in order to be eligible for full credit on the assignment.   Students who miss one of the two parts of the assignment will only be eligible for half credit.
