Extra credit for attending philosophy talks

In order to get class credit for attending a philosophy talk:
  • Be sure the talk is authorized for this purpose.  Any talk listed under Ethics Center in the sidebar or announced in What's Up for your class is authorized. 
  • Write a summary of the talk and send it to me by e-mail at <mayesgr@csus.edu> by the Sunday following the talk no later than midnight.
  • In the subject heading of the e-mail write:  Attendance credit, your name, your class.
  • No late summaries are accepted under any conditions. Late means "received after midnight on Sunday."
  • Your summary should be about one single-spaced page and it must contain multiple (3-5) well-composed paragraphs.  
  • Your summary must be well-written, completely free of grammatical and typographical errors, and an adequate representation of the basic issues addressed. 
  • If it meets these criteria, you will receive the credit advertised for your class (see your syllabus). If it does not, you will receive no credit. 
  • Check your syllabus to see how many summaries you can submit for credit and how the credit is calculated.
  • Finally, do your own work.  If two students submit unusually similar summaries both students will automatically receive failing grades in the course.  If you submit material plagiarized from any other source, the same result will occur.
