Students are expected to contribute actively to a positive learning environment, both in person and online.
Distracting or isolating behavior (such as late arrivals and
early departures, listening to headphones or using electronic devices
for purposes unrelated to the class), lack of preparation, and general
incivility (such as doing homework for another class, falling asleep,
eating more than a discreet snack) will affect your ability to
contribute to our shared learning environment.
If your final grade falls near a borderline, I will take your participation into account when I decide whether to round up or down.
