BTMM 1011: Mass Communication Theory Page 2 of 13 Instructor Expectations Students are expected to have completed all the readings for a week prior to the class meeting and enthusiastically participate in class discussions. It is vital that those students unclear on a particular concept take the initiative to raise questions and seek clarification before the class moves onto new material. As class material is cumulative, failure to understand any of the key concepts early in the course will result in considerable confusion later in the semester. During class discussions, students are expected to be deferential of diverse points-of-view and respectful of differences in gender, race, ethnicity, class, age, religion, nationality, physical ability, and sexual orientation. Course Readings The required text for this class is available at the Temple University Bookstore. Intro to Mass Comm Theory Textbook Readings posted on Blackboard Course Blackboard Page Course documents and announcements will be available on the Temple University BTMM 1011: Mass Communication Theory Blackboard Web site.
