All articles and websites have links provided through the UNB library Reserves tab. The article for Module 2 will be uploaded on D2L and for Module 3 students will be consulting the RAVE website www.theraveproject.com .

Assignments & Examinations:

Twelve modules of the course include student assignments (the first module includes only the welcome and general administrative details which we have called the Online Welcome).  In each of these 12 modules, there will be four component parts:

1) The Consider portion:
Here students will be asked to think about a subject BEFORE they begin looking at the PowerPoints, or reading the assigned article(s). We have included this segment of each module to help students to identify some of their pre-conceived notions about the subject, or to draw links to what they already know about a particular issue. In terms of CONTENT there are no right or wrong answers in the Consider portion. We are looking for you to offer your own opinion, or your own insights. You will be evaluated on how thoroughly you offer a clear and concise overview of your own opinion, and how well you present it in the maximum number of words allowed.

2) The View portion:
Here students will be asked to view the PowerPoint slides and read carefully the notes that have been prepared. You will be asked to write a short response to a question based upon your understanding of the content provided in the slides and accompanying text.

3) The Read portion:
Here students will be asked to read the article (or in some cases two articles) that has been assigned to the module. You will be asked to write a short response to a question, or a task, that is meant to reveal your understanding of the content of the article and your ability to synthesize the concepts, theories and issues raised.

4) The Implications portion:
Here students will be asked to do something—or think about what a person might do as a response to the particular topic we have been discussing. This portion involves something of a more practical nature.

Scoring Rubric: A, B, C, and D/F range for each component.
