(Discussion, attendance, work habit, etc)
Late Submission of Course Materials:
There are no excused absences. The accumulation
of more than four absences will result in the student’s failure for the class.
Class critiques are part of the completion of each assigned project. Students
who fail to submit the project or meet the deadline will lose one letter grade
on the project. With a Doctor’s note you may submit your project, make up your
in class assignment or take the written test. But you will receive one grade
lower as a final grade for submitting it late as per the class policy.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Computers make writing
and revising much easier and more productive. Learners must recognize though that technology may also
cause problems. Printers run out
of ink and hard drive crash.
Learners must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in
spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to zip disk, hard
drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
