Nontraditional Format:This course will involve greater levels of participation and more writing among the students. In particular, the course will be conducted more like a seminar where the Honors students are responsible for presenting weekly readings after the initial weeks of class. Also, the students will be required to write several shorter papers along with a final research paper to justify Honors credit for the course. Overall, it will not involve traditional lectures like the non-Honors version of the course, but instead more direct participation where the Honors students will learn from each other in addition to input from the instructor.
