Posted May 6: Grades
Add 3 points to your final number
tally to determine your semester grade
(90-100 = A, 80-89 = B, 70-79 = C, 60-69 = D, < 60 = F)
If any grades are missing, please
If you are handing in a final project,
due today, your grade calculation is incorrect because the machine read 0
for your final exam grade.

Final Exam Review
Posted April 24: some great images on the
classicizing of George Washington (scroll down the page):
Posted April 23:
The on-line evaluation form I told you about is
ready. This is ANONYMOUS and OPTIONAL. Remember, this is NOT the official
evaluation form - this one goes only to me, not to my department chair. You
will be filling out the departmental evaluation form next week in class. I
ask different kinds of questions!
Click here to access the on-line form.

ASSIGNMENT FOR TUESDAY, APRIL 20: Heracles, Chapter
ASSIGNMENT FOR THURSDAY, APRIL 22: Theseus, Chapter 23
NEWS FLASH: Class is CANCELLED for THURSDAY, APRIL
PAPERS are still DUE. You have two options:
1. Come to the lecture hall at 3:30 and hand the paper to one of my TAs.
2. Drop your paper off for me at the Foreign Language Office (STV 114) at
your convenience, but before 4 pm on Thursday (look for the box with my name
on it near the mailboxes).
Do NOT email the paper to me unless we have discussed it.
If any grades are missing from the Mallard site, speak
to my TAs about it at classtime on Thursday. We'll track it down if it isn't
up there yet.
All grades are now posted on Mallard. Are you
eligible for the "Final Project Instead of a Final Exam" privilege? To find
out, add up your EXAM grades ONLY (each exam was divided into two portions,
worth 70 and 30 points). The best possible total of both exams (all four
parts), without extra credit, is 200 points. You must have a combined total
of 180 or higher to qualify for the final project. Do NOT add in quiz grades
or writing assignment grades. If you are not sure about whether or not you
qualify, ASK. Students with A test averages may choose to take the final
examination, of course.
If you choose to do a final project, you MUST OK
the topic/approach with me (Dr. Siegel).
Final Examination: Wednesday May 5
Deadline for Final Projects: Friday May 7
(best I can do - grades are due soon thereafter)
Writing Assignment on O Brother Where Art Thou:
Assignment due on Thursday, April 15 (Happy Easter weekend)
Reading Assignment for Tuesday, April 13:
Chapter 22 (Heracles/Hercules)
Posted April 4, 2004
Reading for The
Odyssey: books 9-12 (this link takes you to the Internet
Classics Archive at MIT, but any translation of the Odyssey you happen to
have will do). The textbook has given you synopses of these chapters. You
will need details (some, not all - of your choosing) for your writing
assignment on the film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Please read the Cyclops
episode (book IX, or 9) carefully - the cinematic version we saw in the film
Ulysses is way off, and in important ways. You have already read much
of Book 11 (the Underworld scene) as it was quoted in your textbook.
Guidelines for the Final
Optional Planetarium visit: Friday April 9,
2 p.m. (Corner of College Avenue and School Street. The planetarium is the
white-domed structure located on the east end of Felmley Hall of Science.)
The program will last one hour.
