ask all students in their sections to attend at least two out-of-class
events each semester. Examples of such events are relevant lectures,
poetry/fiction readings, film/videotape screenings, plays, exhibits,
concerts, etc. Instructors determine which events to require of
their students and also provide options and make-up alternatives.
Videotapes of selected past events are available in the World
Literature Program Library and may be used for these purposes.
Events which require admission fees may be suggested to students
to fulfill the requirement but cannot be strictly required. In lieu
of taking attendance at given events, instructors may require students
to write reports, journal entries, analyses, or personal responses
to the events. Failure by students to fulfill this requirement is
counted against both attendance and class participation grades.
Each semester the program offers suggestions and recommendations
to instructors concerning relevant out-of-class events. Whenever
the budget allows it, the program sponsors and organizes special
events thought to be particularly relevant to the courses' concerns.
