Assessment methods

The course, developped as a seminar, foresees some reports in itinere, in number of at least three (according to the number of attending students). After a collective discussion of some reference texts of the programm at the beginning of the seminar, the attending students – individually or in pairs – report in a structured way of the readings choosen by themselfs in a large variety of proposals made by the teacher; this proposal may vary from an year to another and according to the general courses of studies and may concern also the comparison among more articles. Attending students have to provide written general outlines of their reports, in order to guide other students to a better understanding. The teacher will take into account the active attendance and the questions of each student made during the collective discussions and the reading of sources, the ability to support a contradictory and the development of a proper historiographical language.
