4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

The students will be provided with the pertinent bibliographical resources for each topic. It will be of vital importance to read these texts to prepare the practical classes which will be closely related to the theoretical content of the subject. Students will have to prepare their practical classes by looking for references and examples following their lecturer's instructions. At the beginning of the term a list of topics will be given out so that the students can choose a topic on which to prepare a written essay and an oral presentation. The lecturer will then suggest both bibliographical and digital references which could help the students with their work.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

S1: 10 % Attendence and participation: Attendence will be obligatory and the student must sign in each class. Students who participate actively in class showing that they have read the pertinent bibliographical references and who are therefore ableto participate in debates and formulate and answer questions on the topics in question will be assessed positively.

 
S2: 40% The writing of an individual essay and participation in an oral group presentation. The following will be assessed: structure of the student's work, its originality (plagerism will be penalised), the quality of its sources, its organisation, wording and presentation. All sources used must be cited.

 
S3: 50% The theoretical-practical exam will consist of questions on definition of concepts, analisis of texts and all the material studied in class.

If for any significant reason a student is unable to attend classes the final exam will be worth 100% of their mark. They will have to do the same exam as the rest of the class as well as two essay questions which will be about the same topics that the rest of the class had to study for their individual essays and oral presentations.
