    Guidelines/Expectations:

     

    • Keep your cell phone off and out of sight unless otherwise instructed. Be present in the moment. No matter how much more important or interesting your texts or social media feed may seem, you owe it to yourself to maximize your learning by minimizing distractions.
    • Let me know about excused absences ahead of time. In the event that you are going to miss class, notifying me in advance is a good idea; I can let you know about any assignments or activities you will be missing and you can return to class feeling prepared.
    • Do your homework independently unless otherwise instructed. See the page on plagiarism at the left if you have any questions about this particular guideline.
    • Come see me whenever you are feeling overwhelmed, confused, or uncertain about a particular assignment. Knowing when to seek help is an important life skill, and you should never feel self-conscious about asking for assistance. I will not always have time in class to address your particular questions or concerns, but if this is the case, do not despair. Send me an email letting me know when you would like to meet, and we will find a time.
