Since class discussion is an integral part of the course, please come
to class every day, having done the thinking, reading and writing assigned
for the day and ready to share and discuss the assigned work. If
you cannot come to class for some reason, call the office (768-4743) and
leave a message for me. You can communicate with me through email
(Mmehta@Internet-95.com) as well. I will read and answer my email
every day after 9 P.M. It is your responsibility to find out what
you missed in your absence and come prepared to class the day after your
absence. Since papers largely evolve out of class discussions, your
written work is likely to suffer from such absences. You will also
miss out on the background necessary for the next assignment and class.
If you miss more than three classes, you may get sufficiently behind in
your work that I may consider withdrawing you from the course.
Policy on late assignments and papers:
All work must be completed on time. Late assignments and papers
will be marked down in grade. If an assignment is late by several
days, it may get a grade of F. You will be asked to write several
short assignments on a regular basis throughout the course. These
are designed to develop your thinking on the subject and to shape class
discussions. Therefore, they need to be done on time. These
must be typed as well, and handed in during the class period. If
you miss more than three of pieces of writing, the instructor has the right
to withdraw you from the class.
