Grading Policies : To be fair to all students in this class, all assignments are due on time at the beginning of class. Late papers (that is, the Volunteer Project paper) will lose one letter grade for each day late (e.g., a B+ project will become a C+ project if it is turned in a day late). No exams will be given early. Make-up exams will only be given in case of emergency IF a student notifies me BEFORE the exam is given and provides appropriate supporting documentation for the absence. Otherwise, the student will receive a zero for the missed exam. Caps and hats should not be worn during exams, and cell phones must be turned off and out of sight during exams. Course Requirements (a) Attendance/Class Participation Policy: Active engagement in class is required, which includes (a) coming to class prepared. Students are expected to complete all assigned readings and activities prior to each class. Class participation and discussions are a major component of this course and require adequate preparation outside of the classroom. You are responsible for all content whether you are present or not (e.g., schedule changes, readings, assignment instructions). (b) attending class regularly. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each class.
