3. Pace your reading. Do not leave it all for the last minute. 4. For those of you who are fresh out of high school, remember that college expects much more independent learning. Not all the material will be covered in class. 5. Pay attention to what you are reading. Take notes. Highlighters are a waste of time: in fact, they give you a false belief of understanding and knowing. Throw them away. 6. Ask questions in lecture if you are confused. The overwhelming likelihood is you are not the only one, regardless of how con±dent your classmates appear! 7. Ask questions about the reading material if you are confused.

9/2/2018 GENERAL PSYCHOLOGY 01 F18 4/9 the only one, regardless of how con±dent your classmates appear! 8. You earn your grade in college. Professors do not give you one. 9. If you are not performing as well as you would like, it is your responsibility to meet with me. Grades can change dramatically up until mid-semester. There is a smaller chance that grades will change after the second exam. Do not put o³ meeting in the hope you can ±x your grade yourself, or that I will change your grade at the end of the semester. I am here to help you learn. Participation Details The participation points are to help you! It is important to pay attention in class, so you know when the professor moves into covering material you aren't yet fully comfortable with. The participation activities are to help you focus on the lecture material, and help you suss out where you still need to do more work, or need help. This material is new to you and your classmates, and you are rarely the only one who has that question. If you cannot ask questions in a large space, make sure you write down the question. You can try to answer it yourself when you review your notes and reading for that class period, but if you still have trouble, submit it as a question to the class forum or send the professor an email. Activities during classes that will be handed in through Sakai, or written on paper and handed in in class. You will be graded on completeness and accuracy. The total number of activities that will go into this portion of your grade will be less than 75% of the activities o³ered; this way you don’t have to worry about missing an activity if you have a university-approved absence. For the Sakai activities, make sure you hand in the activities on time; I will not be able to reopen the activity once it closes. Please note that sending activity questions to people not in attendance counts as "unauthorized assistance" as listed in the Academic Integrity policy. This will be treated as a violation of AI for both you and the student with whom you are communicating.

    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.
