In addition to guiding your discussion of the readings, your TA will also discuss the course writing assignments with you. This instruction is invaluable, especially since your papers count toward 35% of your overall grade. If you want feedback on a paper draft, you should bring specific questions to your TA’s office hours at least 48 hours prior to the due date for the assignment. They will not read full drafts and they will not respond to e-mail requests to look over drafts. In discussion section, you must adhere to the same policies as in the main lecture -- no cell phone usage and no online activity (unless part of a TA’s assignment). You may not attend any discussion sections other than your assigned section, as we have seating limitations in these classrooms. Please note the policies in the following section in regard to TA communication and mandatory section attendance. Policies and Guidelines for Success : 1. Communication. This course will use your assigned u-mail account for all communications. You should check it regularly and use it for any communications with myself or your TA. In addition, when you contact us, you should put your section time in the subject heading. Use a professional greeting in all e-mail correspondence with your TA (Mr. or Ms.) or myself (Dr. or Professor). You must give us 24 hours to respond. On weekends, you should not anticipate a response until Monday. 2. Lectures. Lecture provides you with the foundational knowledge required to understand the bigger picture of this course. On each exam, you can anticipate five to six questions from each lecture. Thus, it’s in your best interest to attend regularly and to take good notes . I do put the lecture slides on Gauchospace, but these only represent a small portion of the information you will need to know from lecture to succeed on exams. 3. Etiquette. Please help yourself and your fellow students concentrate by arriving on time, turning off your phone, and refraining from online activity and talking during lecture. 4. Office hours. You don’t need an appointment to come to office hours. You can come with questions; but you can also drop by to talk about the course or any concerns or interests you might have. 5. Questions during lecture. Since this class is so large, I will address any questions you may have on an individual basis after lecture. We will use the last five minutes of lecture for this purpose.

    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.
