Expectations o Attend . It is through the class that the more captivating topics come to life. If you have to miss a class, notify me and arrange to get the notes from a peer. o Read . There is a lot of information to get through so not all of the important elements will be covered in class, or to the level of detail that the text covers. o Engage . Throughout the course I will be highlighting (and assigning) articles that relate to the subjects in this course for us to think and talk about. I will also be inviting guest lecturers into offer additional perspectives. Please feel free to bring up anything you think would be of interest to the class to me! 1

o Respect . This includes myself, your peers, and yourself. This includes not talking while others are talking, and not interacting with already silent mobile communication devices . If you step in late, do so quietly. During discussions, respect the plurality of perspectives and be mindful of how you communicate your opinions. o Ask . If there is something you would like clarification on, or you have an issue that is interfering with your ability to contribute to the best of your ability, please get in touch with me.
