Section Description

The Green World is a course about plants and human culture. The first half of the course is dedicated to basic plant biology, an exploration of how plants live, grow, and reproduce. In the second half, we explore the impact of plants on the aesthetic, cultural, social, medical, and religious lives of peoples of the world.

Section Expectation

The link above opens the syllabus for last summer's offering of The Green World. This summer's offering will be very similar, thus most of the information about last year's class will be true of this year's, not including dates and times, of course. The syllabus will provide a a good sense of topics covered, the textbook we use, assignments, quizzes, and exams, and other important class information. Please feel free to contact me with additional questions about the Green World at cparis@uvm.edu.

Final course grades will be calculated as follows: Hourly exams (3), 30%; Final exam, 25%; Quizzes, 15%; Pre-Lecture Homework Assignments, 5%; Blog Posts (2) 5%; Plant Project, 10%; Attendance, participation, 10%. Total = 100%. More information about all of these is provided in the syllabus.
