Two days on which you write critical questions or comments on the board before class. These should raise a question, objection, or issue about the reading for that day. They should be more than one sentence (but short enough to write on the board) and should show some understanding of the material. Be prepared to speak to the class about your issue. Please also provide me with a paper copy of your question/comment/issue. You will sign up for these, one before the midterm and one after.
