Readings: Class participation is a part of your grade. We will discuss the readings intensively in each class. You are expected to read the relevant material before class. The instructor will make an effort to provide guidance on the readings beginning with the readings for the second class.
Class attendance: You are expected to attend all classes and be on time. Attendance may be taken. Excused absences may be granted at the discretion of the instructor, in accordance with applicable Department policies. No non-emergency absences will be excused unless they are discussed with the instructor in advance. In the case of students arriving after the first 10 minutes of class, instructor has the right to refuse entry.
