    FINAL EXAM/PAPER/PROJECT

    Options

    1) Write a paper. Paper topics are here. Papers are due on 21 December by 4:00 pm.

    2) You can choose to take the final exam or you can take an oral final exam. The oral final is 15 to 20 minutes long. I ask you questions, you answer them, and there is no opportunity to return to questions you miss. Benefits? 1) It's over in 20 minutes, and 2) there's no essay question. Let me know by the last day of class.

    3) Do a project. You absolutely must confirm with me the topic of the project by 18 November.

    4) Write a take-home final. I will hand this exam out on 6 December. It is due to me by 21 December by 4:00 pm.

    5) Take the final exam. December 15, 2:15 pm. Room TBA. Let me know by 13 December if you wish to pursue this option.
