- Attendance and participation, especially in-class translation. A reading listed on a given day is meant to be discussed on that day; please be prepared for each day’s work. If you find you can’t make it to class because of illness or accident, let me know in advance, if possible, by e-mail or phone.
- quizzes and in-class written work. At the end of the semester the quiz grades will be added together to make one grade equivalent to an exam.
- Two exams, with the final weighted more heavily than the midterm.
- One research project: you will create an edition of a passage of Old English prose, complete with introduction, text, translation, commentary, and glossary. We will work on various stages of this project throughout the semester.
