ass and do not bring items to class that have a strong scent! One of our TR campus and TCC district hallmarks is wellness, and since some suffer from mild to severe allergic reactions to strong scents , this is considered disruptive to a healthy, educative environment!!! 7) Actively participate and respectfully listen when others are talking – no private conversations when the professor or another student is addressing the class -- however, for any distress/emergency situation in class, please interrupt! ( The emergency phone number for the TCCD police is 817-515-58911; Code Blue devices are located in the hallways ). 8) Focus on dialogue, not debate, for class interactions (download guidelines from the downloads link in Blackboard). Also, read the Why Think Sociologically and The Language of Responsibility downloads in blackboard!

9) You are responsible for all the course information in the ICR/syllabus, my TCC eMail, announcements, and other items in the TCC portal for this course, as well as for the information in your text and from all classes. 10) It is a good idea to exchange contact information with trusted classmates. And some of you may wonder about food and drink in class. Never bring food/drink that smells or will make loud noise when consumed, nor anything that would require a clean-up crew if spilled (such as red punch). Put another way, students often need nourishment for their brains – professors too! – but please choose wisely so as not to disrupt or cause more work for others. 11) Complete and turn in all work as scheduled-IN PERSON, IN CLASS. I will accept an electronic copy for the following exceptions : in advance, if for some reason a student can't be in class the day work is due OR if a student turns in work late, but please note that late work will have 10 points per day deducted from the earned score. Anyone meeting the parameters of these exceptions should send work to either t h e r esa . s c h r a n t z @ tcc d .e d u or to t h e r esa. s c h r a n t z @ my tcc d .e d u , and it is the responsibility of the student to send it in an attached file that I will be able to open and access. 12) Carefully read and reflect on the course prior to and after each class. Read the text and review powerpoints in blackboard in advance of class coverage and prior to exams. 13) Submit project papers for my review LONG before the deadline – you may show them to me IN CLASS just before class begins and/or after class ends. Or else you may see me during my office hours. Please do NOT send them to me electronically. 14) Take advantage of all extra credit and regularly review materials posted. I check emails many times Monday through Thursday and usually respond very quickly! If you send me an email on the weekends, please do not expect a response until Monday :-) 15) Make a copy of any papers you wish to keep and keep an on-going record of each assignment and exam points earned. It is also VERY IMPORTANT to check your myTCC eMail, anno uncements, and grades in Blackboard, as well as attendance in web advisor, on a regular basis!

    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.
