The rubric for this assignment is included below.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Participation: 25% You have to be present to participate, so attendance is important. But, in order to learn (and get a good grade on participation) you must ENGAGE. Asking questions, answering questions, discussing the works, that's participation. Quizzes will also be incorporated in this grade
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Major essays and other assignments are due at the beginning of class and must be turned in on the due date (or earlier) regardless of whether you are in class. If you have an emergency or an unavoidable delay, you must notify me ahead of time. Printing problems are not an excuse for submitting a paper late. Five points will be deducted from a paper that is turned in after I have collected the folders, and ten points will be deducted for each day the paper is late. In case of emergency, you may email your paper to me as a word attachment, and then turn in your folder upon your return. Late points will accrue in relation to when it arrives in my email in-box.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Please put cell phones on vibrate during class. No food or drink is permitted in classrooms.
Students: Please arrive on time, having done the assigned readings before class. ??Instructor Contact?Throughout the course, you will have questions about assignments and other matters. You have several channels available to you for communicating course concerns with your instructor. Email is generally the most convenient channel, but you should also take advantage of posting questions that might benefit your peers in the Office area and contacting your instructor by phone as needed. I will make every effort to respond to all messages and inquiries within 48 hours and return all formal grades within one week of the deadline for completion of the work.
