Dear Students,

Because I can no longer claim with any credibility that reading, writing, and critical thinking are essential skills for 21st-century success, I have revised the grading rubric for your papers accordingly. Effective January 20, 2017.

Sorry for any inconvenience,
Dr. Daveena Tauber

Props to my Freedom, Privacy, Technology Sophomore Inquiry class for pointing out that under the new grading criteria, the “excellent” and “poor” categories will be replaced by “winners” and “losers.” — DT
