final exam study guide

Tue, Dec. 8, 1998, noon: Students who have come to talk with me have left thinking the Boell question was the easiest of the essays. Nonetheless, several students have complained. Thus: if the Boell question is on the exam, you will be given a choice of essays. It is made for people who enjoy being creative.

(The actual sample journal is in HSSB 4208, in the bookcase behind the door. Please do not take it out of that room.)
Note (10/6): It is ok to use older articles (on or from Germany) that you have found. If you have trouble finding things, check also the links page for this course--at the top are sources of English translations of current German news about Germany and elsewhere, and US news about Germany.

Policy on regrading:
If you feel that the grade you received on your paper or exam does not correspond to the quality of work that you submitted, you can either:
Print out, complete, and submit the following Grade Change Application Form to Mike in the dept. office.

OR: Write a page (or paragraph, whatever it takes) explaining WHY you think your work is better than the grade assigned to it. Please refer to the relevant assignment sheet (for papers), and make sure you did the assignment. Then resubmit the work in question to me and I will review it and get back to you. Be forewarned that your grade may go down as well as up.

Please note that I grade YOUR WORK, not you.
