Upon request, I myself will personally review the disputed grade with the attached caveat that the revised grade will replace the previous grade given. In other words, if you wish to dispute a grade for a given assignment, quiz, or exam, please note that the new grade will replace the previous one, regardless of whether it is higher or lower than the previous grade. MISCELLANEOUS POLICIES: Blackboard: The course syllabus, assignments, and other notices will be posted to the course Blackboard ( ). Please check Blackboard frequently for posted notices, updates, and general course announcements. 3

E-mail: E-mail is my preferred method of contact. I check e-mail frequently and will make an effort to promptly reply to any e-mails you send me. Two important things you should keep in mind when e-mailing me or any professor are that the e-mails you send are professional communications and that they communicate something about you to your professor. As professional communications, your e-mails should at a minimum: 1.) have subject lines that express their purposes (e.g., ‘Re: Socy230 Midterm Grade’), 2.) use proper grammar and correct spelling, and 3.) begin with the name of the person to whom you are sending the message and end with your name. As representations of yourself, think about what you want your e-mails to communicate to me (or any other professor you e-mail) about you. Read your e-mails before you send them and determine whether you think they communicate what you want (e.g., that you are a good student who takes the class seriously). Please keep in mind that I exchange many e-mails every day with many different people. I am teaching several courses and have over two hundred students. As a result, I won’t know what you are e-mailing me about unless you tell me. When you e-mail me, please specify the course (SOCY230) in your subject heading. If you are continuing a previous e-mail exchange with me, please include the earlier e-mails with your current message. If your e-mail references a conversation we had, please remind me of the content of that conversation. In other words, the following e-mail would not be sufficient for me to understand why you are writing me: “Ok, that sounds good.” Instead, please remind me of our previous conversations and/or include our previous e-mail exchanges. A positive learning environment: My goal is to create a positive learning environment in the classroom for all students. There are three ways in particular that you can participate in this effort: 1) by arriving to class on time, 2) by not having conversations during class, and 3) by powering off or muting your cell phones (and any other electronic devices such as pagers or laptops) during class. 4

Simply put, students coming in late, conversations among students during class, and ringing cell phones are inappropriate and distracting for other students.

What students are saying

    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.
