GER 3512: Intro to German Literature II
Credit Hours and Prerequisites:
This course counts as 3.00 credit hours. Prerequisite: 203, 204 or equivalent.
This course is a survey of the development of German literature in the 19th and 20th centuries. Students will read and interpret central works of the period and learn about major developments in the history of German literature and the different literary forms. All readings, discussions, and assignments will be in German.
During the course meetings literary texts will be examined as representative for the period in question. These texts will serve as models for in-depth interpretations of literary works of art. Students will prepare assigned readings and are asked to participate in discussions of the material in the course meetings. They will participate in online discussions, post discussion questions on Blackboard prior to the course meetings, and prepare and deliver an oral presentation on a time period (in class and in a museum). Students will be introduced to the tools of literary analysis by means of reading and analyzing representative scholarly essays and by guided writing practices. All students are expected to participate actively in classroom discussions and they will present their thoughts and analyses of literary works in a number of short papers as well as a final research paper.

The following sanctions are presented in the University procedures related to Student Academic Dishonesty (from http://policies.cua.edu/academicundergrad/integrityprocedures.cfm): “The presumed sanction for undergraduate students for academic dishonesty will be failure for the course.
