There are two in-class tests, a final exam, and three one-page writing assignments; more details about assignments will be given in class. Assignments and tests count 15% each toward your grade; the final counts 25%. Grades are posted through TritonED (https://ted.ucsd.edu).
There are weekly reading and listening assignments, available from the UCSD library reserve system on https://libraries.ucsd.edu/resources/course-reserves/.
Podcasts are available on https://podcast.ucsd.edu/podcasts/ (the first one is badly miced; hopefully the rest will work better) and snapshots of the blackboard re collecting here.
