Some good advice
This class counts—it is important in the overall scheme of things. Your grade in this class will affect your GPA and will affect your ability to enter Bridge classes or credit classes. A “C-“ will not be good enough for moving to Bridge or credit without a TOEFL or IELTS.
If you attend regularly, do all your assignments, participate enthusiastically, and study for your quizzes, you will have no trouble making a “C” or higher.
If you do not understand an assignment, please ask me! If I don’t hear from you, I will assume you understand.
Do your own work. I will not grade work which I believe you have not done on your own.
Remember our classroom is an English-only environment!
If you know ahead of time that you will be absent, turn your work in before the absence.
If you are absent it is your responsibility to find out from another student what was covered in class on the day you were absent and to make copies of any material that was handed out in class on the day you were absent. The instructor will not be responsible for helping you catch up.
If you miss 15 classes, you will receive a grade of “F” and you will be dismissed at the end of the quarter. If you miss 12 classes, you will receive a grade of “F.” If you miss class 10 or 11 times you will receive a grade of “D.” Three (3) tardies of 5 minutes or more will equal 1 absence. A tardy of more than 10 minutes = 1 absence.
Failure to attend the last day of class will lower your final grade by one letter grade.
NO final exams are given early.
