syllabus for the course

You should be thinking about a term-paper topic. Pick a section of the book not on the syllabus to explore, or a section on the syllabus to explore more deeply than the text did. Although the paper will not be due until Nov. 30 I will ask you to tell me your topic by October 19, and will hold you to that topic unless you give me a good reason to switch.
