Update on grades

To reiterate what we’ve discussed in class:

1. Class participation (as a critical dimension of what it takes to do ethics effectively with colleagues): 0-5 points for each of five classes. (If you attend all classes, I’ll use your five best. If you miss two, I’ll use all five you’re present for. If you miss more than two classes, we should talk.)

Total available points for class participation: 25

2. Weekly posts & comments: 0-5 points for each of five classes.
