Please stop me if you have a question or need clarification on something. 

Please correct me if I am wrong. I am a human and I make mistakes.


All texts read in class will be provided, therefore I expect them to be brought to each class. 

Everyone should be excited and engaged during class time.

All work must be completed with honesty and honor. Plagiarism of any kind will not be tolerated. 

If you need to use the restroom or be excused for any reason, please do so without interrupting myself or the class. 

Late homework will be accepted ( conditionally) and will receive partial credit. If it is not turned in 2 days after it is due, then no credit will be awarded. 

Test and Quiz corrections are encouraged and will result in partial credit.
