together. For a student taking 15 credit hours as recommended by most advisers, this 2:1ratio results in a 45 hour work week. So, in any given week, you'll have 2.5 hours of ENC3250 class meetings (1.25 X 2) and about 5 hours of homework for our class. That meansour class should account for at least 7.5 hrs of your week total. You'll receive credit for all of the work you do for our class, inside or outside, as long as yourfollow proper protocol for submission and submit your work on time. You'll have regular in-class writing to submit to dropboxes. You'll upload homework to dropboxes at least once aweek. These dropboxes are automated and will close at the appointed times. The boxes willnot re-open for any reason.Due dates for major projects will probably not change.

Students will be graded on attendance and participation. Much of our time together isdevoted to working in groups on projects. There is no way for you to "make up" missedassignments (including Labs) or quizzes. Asking me repeatedly to make up work will notchange this policy. The drop boxes for assignments, big and small, close when theassignments are due. They won't be reopened for any reason. Each class member is alloweda total of 3 absences without additional penalty beyond the missed coursework whichcannot be made up. Every absence after 3 will lower your final grade one full letter, even if you are absent for very good reasons (illness, death in the family, work, and so on).
