1 unit, P/NP, class number: 24220

Are you a student who wants to earn a unit for reading Exit West and participating in On the Same Page this fall? If so, L&S 10 is the course for you. 

Here are the course requirements:

  • Read the novel over the summer or early fall, and post a substantive response to it on bcourses. (We will provide some prompts before the semester starts.) Your response can take any of a number of forms, from a short essay to a video to a song or a Prezi . . . be creative!
  • Comment (on bcourses) on at least three other students' responses to the book.
  • Attend two class meetings on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 in 3 LeConte Hall. The dates this semester will be announced--in the meantime, don't sign up unless your Tuesday evenings are clear. In order to pass the class you must attend both class meetings--no exceptions.
  • Attend at least two qualifying events related to Exit West (and be sure to sign in at the door), and submit a short response to each on bcourses. Qualifying events include the keynote event with Mohsin Hamid, scheduled for Thursday, August 20 in the Haas Pavilion, at 8:00 p.m. Other qualifying events will be announced by late summer 2020.
  • Comment (on bcourses) on at least three other students' responses to each of the two events you attended.

On the Same Page is designed to welcome you into the intellectual community at Cal. We firmly believe that interacting with faculty--and with other students--around a topic of mutual interest is one of the best ways to ensure the quality of your education. All of the activities required for L&S 10 will be fun and interactive and educational. You will be glad you participated!

Our hope is that participating fully in On the Same Page will be so rewarding that you will continue to seek out enrichment opportunities throughout your undergraduate years at Cal.
