Teaching Methodologies: A wide variety of teaching methods will be employed with a heavy emphasis on written expression. Formative Assessments will outnumber Summative Assessments. Students will be evaluated and assessed using a number of different modalities in an effort to address the various learning styles presented by the students.
Course Expectations: Be respectful of others and I will see to it that they are likewise respectful to you. Come to class ready to learn each day. Do your work. I do not assign things I will not grade. Therefore, do your best on every assignment. Engage me and the material. Passivity will get you nowhere. The best classes are those were everyone is full participating each and every time. Be prompt. Tardiness is a sign of selfishness and immaturity. I will not disappoint you; I promise ☺
The course will start June 16, 2012
