Although the number of subscribers to my blog has dropped off considerably (I grow tiresome), I know that there are still some active faculty who read it; so, a quick question for you: how many pages of reading do you assign to your grad classes each week? My rough limits are 100 pages a week for undergrad and 200 for grad, which is less than I had for most of my courses as a student, but more than the students seem comfortable with. I know: through the snow, uphill both ways.
I know this differs significantly from field-to-field, but what do you consider an upper limit for page-counts? What do you do to help students who say this is too much? Thanks!
