From CS 160 Fall 2008
It is important to attend the lectures and read the readings.
Class participation includes both in-class participation as well as participation in the discussion on this wiki. If you are taking the class for credit you are required to post at least 1 substantive discussion comment or question pertaining to a reading. The comments should be the length of a short paragraph (3-4 sentences). Comments should be posted before the lecture. We will NOT accept comments after the lecture.
Examples of good comments:
- Clarification of some point or detail presented in reading.
- Questions about the readings or answers to other peoples questions.
- Connections to relevant idea and topics on the web.
In some cases we will provide a set of questions for the readings that you should consider as you do the reading. Well thought out answers to these questions that extend the discussion and do not repeat earlier commetns will also count as substantive comments.
