I NSTRUCTOR P OLICIES I expect you to attend class regularly and participate in class discussions. Class will be a combination of lecture, discussion, group discussions, etc. You are also expected to do all of the assigned reading for the week before class. The SDSU catalog states that students “Should expect to spend a total of three hours per week, in class and study time, for each unit of college work attempted” (2001, 421). For a three-unit class during the regular term, this translates 9 hours per week (including 3 hours of class). Appointments, and messages: For an appointment or any other issue related to the course, please contact me via e-mail indicated above. Late assignments: Late assignments will be dropped one letter grade for each day they are late. Assignments are always due at the beginning of class. Classroom behavior: Students are prepared for the class and come on time; laptops and mobile phones are switched off. Reading Material: All reading material will be available and distributed beforehand. Details will be explained later. B OOKS AND A RTICLES Freedman, Estelle B. 2003.

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.
