Your contribution on a regular basis in class discussions is essential. Participation is defined as your reflection on the assigned readings and class discussion and may include some impromptu in-class papers or other brief in-class activities. Final grades may be lowered as a result of insufficient participation in class.

Classroom Etiquette

If your conduct during class discussions seriously disrupts the atmosphere of mutual respect I expect in this class, you will be asked to leave class. Similarly, if you make or take cell phone calls, fall asleep in class, work on non-class related material, or otherwise disrupt class through verbal or nonverbal expressions, you will be asked to leave.
