The aim of discussion section is to personalize, process, analyze, and synthesize the readings, lecture,and outside work you have done for this course to further the stated bifold developmental trajectory of the course: “1) from the uniquely and deeply individual, through the personality system, throughintimate and professional relationships, through commerce, through ecology, to the universal, and, 2)from the evolutionary past (physical, biological, psychological), through the present, into visions of acreative future” (quoted from course syllabus). Your own participation in discussion is not limited tothe hour that we meet on Wednesdays. The core of the visible participation during the week will beelectronically, via blog.
Your section grade is 20% of your overall grade in the course. This grade will be determined based onthe following:Active participation (50% of section grade) You are expected to contribute to the learning andsuccess of others in this course by a) attending section consistently and on time; b) coming toclass having read the readings carefully and critically; and c) participating in section and onlinein an active, thoughtful, and respectful manner. Each week, one or two students will take thelead in preparing a set of questions or issues based on the readings and facilitating a classdiscussion. The questions or issues for the week should be posted on bSpace no later than themorning of the day preceding class (i.e. Tuesday morning).Assignments (50% of section grade)1. Journal and Various Written Assignments: You are required to write weekly entries for thecourse blog. These entries may be responses to the course readings, lecture, or activities/questions given in section or via the course blog (personalethics.wordpress.com).These entries are designed to help you reflect on the topics covered in class prior to comingto section. In addition to your weekly entry, you are expected to comment and respond tothe entries of others. These entries and comments will be judged based on the quality,
creativity, and thoughtfulness with which they were composed.2. Continuing Experiential Assignment: For the ongoing experiential assignment (5 minutes practicing being, 5 times per week and recording your reflection of your experience), youmay create a Google document and add me as a viewer of this document. My Google emailaddress is professorzamora@gmail.com. You may also create a binder and bring your experiential assignment to class to get credit. I expect this assignment to either be formallytyped or neatly written with some reflective description of your experience. I will check for completion of the assignment every other week beginning February 2nd.3. Reading Quizzes: Finally, you may be given occasional unannounced or announced quizzeson material from course readings to assess whether you are 'keeping up' with readingsoutside of class and/or retaining the information.
Attendance No unexcused absences will be permitted without penalty. However, you may miss two classes without penalty for unexpected and unavoidable occasions with excused absences. In order to request anexcused absence, please submit the reason for the absence in writing by email(mzamora@berkeley.edu) and I will notify you of the status of the absence by email. If you areabsent on a day that an assignment is due, you are responsible for ensuring that your work is turned indespite your absence from that particular section so that you can receive credit. The penalty for unexcused absences is a one letter grade deduction from your participation grade per absence. Pleasenote that
 students who miss the first two section meetings will be dropped from the section in order tomake room for students who attend that are on the waiting list.
TardinessRoll will be taken every time we meet, usually 10 minutes after the official start of class (i.e. “Berkeleytime”). If you are not present at the time roll is taken, but show up after, you will be considered tardy.Four tardies will result in the same penalty as an unexcused absence.Late Work Due to the sheer number of students I have, I am not in a position to accept late work.Section ConductDuring the first section we will develop in concert policies to govern our discussion section. These policies will be made available online after our first meeting.Grading ChallengesI will do my best to grade fairly, transparently, and in a timely manner. As my expectations should beclear for all assignments, I do not anticipate many, if any, challenges to grades received. If you feel asif you received a grade that you did not earn, please submit your grading challenge
in writing 
with your reasons for the challenge clearly and fully explained and argued, with appropriate documentation tosupport your challenge.
