Workload

Edit Workload Content

This is a 15 point paper, and so you should plan to spend 150 hours on it over the course of semester. This time allocation includes engaging with online materials, reading, group work, and preparation of assignments.

Don't forget to allow time to prepare for tutorials: I expect that when readings are required for specific lectures you will attend having read the piece carefully and having thought about how it connects to our paper.
