Course Expectations

 Regular attendance; if you are absent, it is your responsibility to find out what you missed. The textbook and handouts do not replace valuable classroom instruction, so try to avoid unnecessary absences.

 Please make the effort to be on time and ready to learn before the bell goes; arriving late is disruptive and leads to you missing information.

 Bring your supplies each day.

 Be respectful of yourself, others, and the classroom environment.

 Students are strongly discouraged from bringing things to class which may distract teaching or learning.

 Hand in all assignments (on time and completed to the best of your ability).

 Actively participate: ask questions, check Student Connect, check the course website.

 Submit your OWN work.

***Any form of plagiarism (copying the ideas/words of any other person or source) will result in a zero. Plagiarism is very serious: it is the theft of intellectual property. I will teach you how to properly cite any other sources you have consulted which help shape your own ideas.
