Quarter Taken: Winter 2016 Submitted March 30, 2016 Grade Received: A-

Jorge is amazing.
I had to take 96w as a pre-req for my history major.
Grading:
-40% participation (yes, seriously)
-40% research paper
-10% one time presentation
-10% weekly reading comments
There are weekly readings, which you discuss in class. The whole class is basically a discussion of the reading led by one or two presented each week (the 10%). You can skim through the reading to get the general sense of it and just talk about it in class.
Jorge guides you throughout the course for your presentation & essay.
NO MIDTERM OR FINAL!!!
the research paper is a 12-15 pg essay with a topic of your choice. I HATE and SUCK at writing, and i pulled off a B+ for the paper. He told us the lowest grade he gave on a written essay was like a C+. what a nice dude.
You only meet once a week, so going to class is your grade, and he will take attendance. (class of >20 only)
JORGE is awesome, and I definitely recommend him!!
