Teaching method

Students must read in advance the supporting texts, thus allowing an initial contact with their
contents, so that, in the classes in presence, these contents can be given a deeper interpretation through a discussion between peers, at the same time granting an entry-level (because oriented by the teacher) autonomous acquisition of knowledge, as much as of their verbal exposition.

Evaluation: A written essay (subject to an early approval of the work-plan by the teacher) and its oral presentation (in a «work in progress» state).
