Peer evaluation: You must do your assignments satisfactorily to fulfill your contract. Each week, two or three students will work as a peer group in charge of leading our joint education for two or three classes. During that unit, the peer leaders will assign readings as well as writing or multimedia assignments--and they will be charged with determining if each student has satisfactorily completed the assignment. They will be charged with providing written feedback on all assignments. Their goal will be to ensure that each student satisfactorily completes the assignment and they will work with each student to make sure they succeed.

SYLLABUS We will be co-creating a syllabus in this course. Professor Davidson will begin, there will be several special guests or other events, but the remainder of the course content will be assigned by peer-leaders charged with offering a challenging, creative, informative, inspiring, participatory educational experience (No Talking Heads Please!) for the class. Peer-led classes might that involve reading/seeing/listening to/experiencing imaginative works (including scientific papers,) attending lectures, visiting art museums and going to concerts together, or visiting businesses and community organizations to understand how these literacies are changing. I will get us started with some readings and a museum visit and a collaborative public wiki-based writing assignment. We have a number of exciting visitors coming this term. The rest of the syllabus will be filled out by the peer leaders and will evolve over the course.
