Students who are turning in a long paper in place of the two short ones should do so the last day of class or no later than Friday. After that it will be graded as late.
Those who have combined quiz scores of 16 or above are excused from the final test (14-15 if you are taking P/NP). Your two quizzes will count as three quizzes (45%) toward your final grade. If your combined score is 15, it is your choice, although only a 10 on the final would significantly improve your quiz average. You may want to focus on the final paper, which is worth twice as much as a quiz.
If you do not take the quiz, you must turn in your final paper beforehand. I will be in my office from 11:00 to 2:30 on Monday to accept papers.
The final quiz will consist of two questions on the last two novels. It will be available on the class website Monday morning for those wanting to get a head start. You may even turn in a typed copy during the final exam period. If you choose to take it during the scheduled period, bring a blue book, the novels, notes, and anything else you would use for a take-home.
If you are taking the quiz, you have until Tuesday (Dec. 6) to turn in the final paper. I will be in my office from approximately 11:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 to 3:00. If you miss me, submit your paper at the Literature department office (opposite end of the hall). Late papers must be time-stamped there.
If you want your paper available next quarter in the Literature office, type “Privacy Waiver” at the top of the front page and sign your name underneath. If you want it mailed to you, clip it to an envelope of appropriate size with sufficient postage and a correct address. I will mail it as soon as grades are submitted.
