Note:
Absences should be reserved for emergencies (serious illness, severe weather, transportation difficulties, family crisis, etc.). Medical and dental appointments, as well as extracurricular activities, should be scheduled at times that do not interfere with class meetings.

PARTICIPATION POLICY

Students are expected to be courteous during lectures and class discussions, to have respect for their fellow classmates, and to engage fully in all classroom activities. Learning is a partnership between you, your fellow classmates, and your instructor. You can do your part by giving the class your full attention and exhibiting the college-level traits of curiosity, serious-mindedness, and appreciation for learning. To facilitate this process, students will be required to keep their desks free of distractions (newspapers, magazines, homework assignments, etc.) and focus their attention on the dynamics of the classroom. Anyone engaged in discourteous or disruptive behavior will be asked to leave the classroom and will be counted that day as absent.

ESSAY ACCEPTANCE POLICY

Essays will be accepted on or before the due date, but not after.  In the event of  an emergency, essays may be transmitted as email attachments, but they must arrive on the due date. Send your essay to esmnet@earthlink.net and be sure to get an acknowledgement.  If you do not receive an acknowledgement within 24 hours, you can assume that I did not receive your essay.

EXAM POLICY

All examinations must be written in blue books. These are available at most college bookstores. You will need three for the semester.

MAKE-UP POLICY

Make-up examinations will be given at the end of the semester.
