C: Your work will receive a ³C´ if it is average, meets full requirements

, is complete, on time, and demonstrates competence. In short, a gradeof ³C´ is the equivalent of doing just what needs to be done in order to get by.
 
D

Participation in class discussions, group work, and conferenceappointments is required. When explaining my grading policy I used the phrase, ³your work.´ I understand ³your work´ to include written assignments, required readings, classdiscussions, and attendance. Your final grade for this class is an evaluation of your overall performance, not just your essay assignments.
