University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Fall 2011 English 124 Contemporary Literature Instructor: Dr. Elyse Crystall Reading Comics: Comics, Narrative, and History Course Policies ATTENDANCE Because this is a discussion-based class, your presence is crucial for the success of the class. As a result, having more than two absences will negatively affect your grade. In addition, two late arrivals and/or early departures count as one absence. I make no distinction between excused and unexcused absences, except in the case of religious holidays, and an absence for any reason does not excuse you from any work assigned for the day you are absent or for the day you return. As a result, you are responsible for getting any information, handouts, schedule changes, assignments, and notes that you miss. Although I will make every effort to respond to your emails as soon as is feasible, I cannot promise that I will be able to respond immediately. Because it will be difficult for me to respond to emails asking about missed work in a timely manner or with much detail, please be sure to have contact info for other students in class. Please note: according to departmental policy, missing more than six classes could result in an automatic failure. PARTICIPATION Participation means taking an active part in discussions by making intelligent and relevant contributions based on the readings and on listening to what others have said. Participation also includes active listening, doing in-class writing assignments and taking quizzes, participating in small group discussions, coming to class prepared (having done the work due that day), and being fully engaged with the course material. I will call on students to ensure that all are involved, and I expect you to ask questions, take risks, share your understandings, listen to each other, and respect the feelings and experiences of your classmates. You are expected to complete all the reading assignments for the course by the due dates noted on
