Policies ENC 1101
To receive a passing grade in this course, you must write in-class essays at an acceptable college level (grade C or higher). If you do not write in-class essays at an acceptable college level, you will not pass the course.
Homework: I collect and return all assigned homework. It counts. Late homework is not accepted.
Turning in Your Assignments: Out-of-class assignments (formal essays) must be typed and turned in by the due date. Late assignments will be accepted one-two class sessions after the due date with a grade penalty. If you are not present during an in-class essay, you must make up the essay.
Attendance: Attendance is mandatory, and I will take roll each class meeting. Absences are allowed without penalty, according to the following schedule:
* 3-day a week classes -- 5 absences
* 2-day a week classes -- 3 absences
* 1-day a week classes -- 1 absence.
Every absence thereafter will result in a one-letter grade deduction from your final grade. If, however, you have perfect attendance, you participate in class, and you complete your homework assignments, you will receive extra credit.
Appearance: Out-of-class essays must be typed. Write in-class essays using blue books, which may be purchased at the campus bookstore, using only blue or black ink. You may single or double space in-class essays, as you choose. Observe the margins.
Revising Essays: Revising out-of-class essays after a grade has been assigned is allowed. If you wish to revise an out-of-class essay, discuss the matter with me. The subject matter of the revision must be the same as the subject matter of the original.
Grading: See course syllabus.
Support Lab: English and
Final grade: See the course syllabus for the distribution and calculation of the final grade.
