At 200 level students are expected to:
- provide evidence of learning beyond replication of content knowledge or skills relevant to the unit's learning outcomes
- display substantial understanding of fundamental concepts in the field of Greek religion and the ability to apply these concepts in a variety of contexts
- use convincing argumentation with appropriate coherent justification
- communicate ideas fluently and clearly in terms of the discipline conventions
If you are not a student of the ancient world, or with limited experience of history- or humanities-based study, please make an appointment to see the unit convenor prior to the census date.
- The tutorial paper and the essay need to be electronically submitted through Turnitin.
- No hard copies will be accepted.
- Your work is expected to be a formal written presentation with references (footnotes/endnotes and bibliography) listed according to the Ancient History Style Guide that will be uploaded on iLearn. You may include images if you think it is helpful to make a point clear, but again make sure you provide a bibliographic reference, with the page/plate number, for all the images you use.
Extensions and penalties
Please avoid asking for extensions. If students anticipate any difficulty in meeting assigned due dates, it is important that they contact the convenor as early as possible. Application for an extension must be made prior to the submission date of the assignment. Such a request will be considered only if the student faces a serious crisis that can be documented in some way (eg. with a medical certificate). 'Getting behind with your work' or 'I had other deadlines' do not count.
* 2% of credit will be deducted per day (including weekends) for assignments handed in late without an extension.
If your assessment task is more than one week late, and you do not have special consideration, you will need to gain the permission of the unit convenor before submitting that task. Tasks more than one week late, without special consideration, will be marked on a pass/fail basis.
*10% of credit will be deducted for assignments that fall short of the word limit or exceed the word limit by 10% or more.
There are no examinations for this unit.
Attendance of tutorials is compulsory. If you miss more than four tutorials without evidence of an unforeseen and serious disruption (e.g. illness, supported by a medical certificate) your absence will be queried.
