PAWS You must use your PAWS account and Semester Book plus Blackboard All materials and assignments will be found at the Blackboard site only. Listening examples may be accessed at any computer in Middleton Library or at your own personal computer. This requires Real Player. (More on this later)

Class Notes An outline of each lecture will be available in Blackboard prior to that class meeting. I suggest you print out each outline, bring it to class, and use it as a point of departure for your notes. The entire lecture will not be found in the download. You still have to attend class to get all the information.

What is “rude” behavior? Coming to class late through the lower doors Leaving class early Talking Using a cell phone (includes IM) Using a laptop for anything other than taking notes in class.
Image of page 8
Listening There will be numerous listening assignments. I suggest that you spend a short amount of time listening every day. It is difficult to absorb this material if you wait until just before the tests. The midterm exam will cover the assigned listening. Post-Midterm listening will be unassigned and will reflect your ability to synthesize listening skills from the first part of the semester.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
