You are allowed to miss three (3) classes. You are expected to acquire notes from the lecture or screening from a classmate. If you email me requesting a summary of what we discussed in the class you missed, you will recieved a cold, curt response suggesting you ought not to email me for such a request.
After 3 absences, you will lose 10 pts. for the 4th and 5th absence. At the sixth absence, you will fail the class.
You have 10mins to arrive in class before I mark you as "tardy." A tardy is half of an absence.

If an extreme or emergency situation arises, please come and talk to me as soon as you can.

Late assignments.
Your assignments are due on the day and time they are due. If an extreme situation arises, you have 24 hours to get me the assignment, albeit with a 10pt penalty. After 24 hours, you cannont turn in the assigment.

Technology in class.
I fully expect that many of you will be using some sort of digital device to take notes in class. I expect you are taking notes, of course, and not fiddling about on Facebook, or any other online 'Book. Outside of note taking, you are not allowed to use cellphones in class. If I catch you texting during class, unless you have prior consideration, likely you will recieve a cold, curt, and public verbal castigation.

Assignment format.
You papers will be formatted as such:
• Double-spaced, 12-pt font, standard 1 inch margins all around.
• File format: .PDF
• File name: "firstnamelastnameassignmentnramepdf". Do not use spaces. For example, if I was turning in engagement 1, I would name the file "sethmullikenengagement1.pdf"

All papers must be submitted to me in MLA format. Failure to follow this format will result in a loss of points.
