Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Dates for lectures and assignments will be subject to revision!! You are asked to read the appropriate sections of your textbook for the subjects listed. As well as any other additional readings assigned. These readings should be completed prior to class. Please study and review the material continuously. Pay attention and take notes in class. If you wait, read and cram before writing an essay, you will perform poorly. Show up to class. You need to see the slides and understand the information. Do not think that by copying another student’s notes from missed classes you will understand the information. Essay topics come from class lectures and not the assigned textbook. This information will serve you well throughout your career.
No cell phone use or texting under the desk. Turn your cell phone ringer off. Laptop computers ONLY allowed when taking notes. ABSOLUTELY no checking Facebook or email during class.
