Instructor: Rebecca Lawson
Your syllabus is a contract between you, the student, and me, the instructor.
Therefore, your syllabus tells you what I expect of you as a student, and what you can expect from this class over the course of the semester.
So… it is a good idea to know exactly what the syllabus says.
Let’s review it together.
Everyone’s an Author by Andrea Lunsford, et al. ISBN-10: 0393932117
Grading: You will receive a letter grade for this class. In order to pass and receive credit, you must earn above a "C," meaning 70%, in the class.
Your grade will consist of the following:
1. What happens if I need to turn in a late paper?
2. How many absences or tardies can I have before being dropped?
3. I don’t like doing drafts. Can I just skip peer review days?
4. How can I tell if I have an assignment due on a particular day?
5. Can I throw away my papers, homework, and class work after they are passed back?
6. I'm going to miss class. Can I email you my paper and have it be on time?
7. How many essays and drafts to do actually need to write in order to to pass the class with a C?
Dear Professor Smith,
I am a student in your English 101 class that meets from 9:00 to 12:10 on Mondays and Wednesdays. I was absent on Monday, and I saw that a handout with instructions for the reading journal assignment was posted on the website. I read the handout, but I was wondering if we needed to do a new reading journal for each poem assigned on the syllabus.
