. -Woody AllenAn important part of this class is participating in discussions and in-class activities.Students are expected to be present at each class session and involved in classdiscussions, activities and experiences. Because of the importance attached toregular attendance:
Each absence that is not the result of a medical emergency or that is notapproved in advance by your instructor, results in the loss of the 5 participationpoints for that day.
An excused absence is one that the instructor has approved in advance.
Students with excused absences are still required to complete and submitcourse content.
Students that are late after 10 minutes will be marked down as absent. If youare late to a class, please remain after the class has ended to speak to theinstructor.
