Attendance: Given the interactive nature of the course, regular class attendance is required. Prepare to participate actively in discussions by completing all reading and writing assignments before class time , bringing relevant texts to class, and considering provocative questions and comments to spark discussion. Prepare for writing workshops by completing assignments before class and bringing the required hard copies for peer response workshops. Excessive absences will lower your grade. Missed in-class work
