Grades and Policies

This is a class that depends on your being there. Your participation, readings responses, and quizzes cannot be made up. Therefore, you must be in class. You are allowed three absences. No excuses. No penalties. After three absences, your grade will be dropped a letter per absence; you will be dropped from the course with a WF after six absences. Excessive tardiness will also impact reading response averages and accumulation of absences.

FINAL GRADES will be based on the following scale:

The Writing Center located in 109 Gamble Hall can be a good resource for revising your essays if you would like a little extra help with your writing. It is a free service. Please consider taking advantage of it.

Be aware that plagiarism can result in dismissal from the university, failure of the course, or failure of an assignment.
