Please read the Arts & Humanities Division Policy: http://bellevuecollege.edu/ArtsHum/policy.html for full details on your classroom responsibilities.
Part of your classroom responsibilities involves professional behavior toward the instructor, colleagues, and the class itself. Disruptive behavior is disrespectful behavior.
When you are in doubt about any behavior, consult your instructor during office hours: we recognize the judgment of the instructor as the final authority in these matters.
When disruptive behavior occurs, instructors will speak to or e-mail the students concerned. Those students are then responsible for ending the disruptions at once. Failure to do so may result in removal of the students from class.
Please feel free to contact me with any concerns you have regarding this class.
