Reading Analysis Assignments
- You must be present in class to receive full credit
for this assignment. Assignments submitted before class without
accompanying class attendance will receive no more than half credit.
Assignments submitted after class cannot receive any credit.
- This assignment is worth 15 points. Your score will be
based both on effort and “correctness” of your answers. If you don’t
understand the meaning of a particular paragraph or line, you should
nonetheless give your best shot at answering the question (nonsensical
answers will not be rewarded, however).
- Your answers must be typed. Only typed answers will
receive credit. We will discuss answers to these questions in class, at
which time you may wish to add hand-written notes for your own
- You may work with others in completing this
assignment. That is, you may discuss the ideas contained in the readings.
However, each person should write up answers to these questions on his or
her own. You may consult the Heilbroner book for additional thoughts.
