This is a “tentative” course schedule, and I reserve the right to make changes as I deem appropriate and necessary throughout the semester.
All course readings are to be read by the date listed.
All HW is due the date in which it appears; homework must be TYPED, LABELED and submitted at the beginning of class.
If you are not present for class discussion based on readings/HW, you will not receive full credit on the HW assignment.
After one warning, cell phone use, texting, and other electronic distractions will result in dismissal from the class for that entire class time. The third offense will result in appropriate administrative action.
