Teaching, Attendance, Course Books and Assessment

Teaching

Frontal lessons. Students may be required to read during the course in order to be able to attend some lessons with due preparation.

Attendance

Compulsory attendance for attending students.

Course books

F. Petrarca, Rerum vulgarium fragmenta, ed. S. Stroppa, Einaudi - [the teacher will request a specific selection of rhymes during the exam]

M. Buonarroti, Rime - a selection provided by the teacher in blended learning

G. Della Casa, Rime - a selection provided by the teacher through a blended learning platform or in a paper handout.

E. Fenzi, Petrarca, Bologna, Il Mulino, 2008.

R. Fedi, The foundation of models. Bembo, Castiglione, Della Casa, in History of Italian Literature, Rome, Salerno, vol. IV: The sixteenth century, pp. 507-594. [fascicle]

Other materials (texts and secondary bibliographic) will be provided by the teacher at the beginning of the course

Assessment

Oral exam, in order to enhance the oral argumentative skills of individual students in relation to a discipline that requires the possession of a specific vocabulary. During the test, the attending student is required to report, during the interview, on the topics covered by the study texts, which must demonstrate that they have read and understood every textual and critical aspect. Students will be assessed using the following criteria: (1) subject knowledge. - (2) ability to reason appropriately on the subject matter of the application. - (3) ability to expose matter with language properties. Those tests that demonstrate the student's possession of good critical and in-depth skills will be evaluated as "excellent"; the ability to orient oneself with certain mastery of the subject within the main topics covered in class, also establishing, if necessary, links; the ability to use the technical vocabulary of the discipline in a safe and accurate way. Those tests that demonstrate the student's possession of a mnemonic knowledge of the contents will be evaluated as "fair"; a minimum critical ability and connection between the main themes with the use of the language and the technical lexicon of the discipline. Those tests that demonstrate the achievement by the student of a minimum amount of knowledge relating to the fundamentals of the discipline, even in the presence of some training gaps, as well as the use of a language that is not entirely appropriate will be evaluated as "sufficient". Those tests that highlight difficulties in orientation of the student with respect to the topics addressed in the exam texts, serious training gaps with respect to the founding principles of the discipline and the non-use or improper use of the specific vocabulary will be evaluated negatively.
