MACS 100 – Summer 2014
MACS 100 Syllabus
This four-week intensive summer course consisted of 30 students and met four times week for three hours. Having served as a teaching assistant for this course previously, I was tasked with redesigning the syllabus to fit into the summer’s shortened time frame. I was given the advice that students are often taking two intensive courses at the same time, and to adjust reading expectations. I also gave students time during class to work on the final group video project and split each class meeting into lecture, discussion, and screening to keep students engaged.
