COURSE POLICIES Attendance and Punctuality : Because of the interactional and interdependent nature of this course, your attendance is mandatory and is part of your participation grade . You will lose 2% per absence without legitimate cause. Legitimate reasons for absence include illness significant enough to impede your performance—and which will require a doctor’s note verifying significance of your illness—accidents, co-op interviews, and family emergencies such as deaths. Legitimate reasons do not include vacations, campus events, or other coursework. More than two absences without cause may result in my asking you to withdraw from the course. You are expected to arrive to class on time and to remain in class for its duration. I will deduct .5% from your grade for each late arrival or early departure without legitimate reason. If you are late to class, please enter quietly and without disturbing discussions; if you arrive during a presentation, please wait until the presenters are finished to take your seat. First Week of Class:
