homework

 

Homework:
You are going to get exercises every second week. (see "Two-Week-Exercise xy") Let me stress again: They play a role for your oral grade.

 

Office Hours:

By appointment. Just contact me via the contact button.

 

GFS:

Possible of course. There won't be a list of topics, so if you are interested in doing a GFS in social studies, come to me as early as possible with a suggestion for a topic. However, five GFS as a maximum are possible. First come, first serve.
