outlining specifics of the assignment to be posted at the course
Web site around the fourth week (third class meeting).
Students will be working in teams of about four or five.
The final deliverable product of each team's consulting efforts
will be a written environmental assessment (probably around
fifteen or twenty pages) and a formal presentation.

Students are expected to attend and participate in all class sessions.
Exams will be based in large part on issues discussed in class.
Team meetings will be a formal part of our class meetings,
and students who are not present to complete graded assignments
associated with these meetings will be compensated with a
score of zero for that day of work.
- Evaluation Methods :
Students will be evaluated on the basis of performance on
two independent tests (40%),
in-class meetings with a consulting team (10%),
a team written draft consulting report (15%),
a team written final consulting report (15%),
and a team oral consulting presentation (20%).
Scores on the team written and oral work will be
adjusted by ratings that each team member makes of
