Student learning goals

General method of instruction

The class will meet during its scheduled time and will follow a general pattern of discussion between the instructor and the students (with occasional short, informal, and informational lectures).

Recommended preparation

To succeed in this course I recommend that students come with a willingness to learn. This willingness to learn includes being open-minded and repectful to all ideas and issues discussed throughout the course.

Class assignments and grading

Assignments are not designed to overload the students. Assignments will aim at improving scholastic skills and introducing the student to resources both on and off campus.

This class is graded on a C/NC scale. C/NC will be awarded on the basis of participation and completion of assigned work.
