Class assignments and grading

During the course of this quarter, we will be going on four excursions. Two will be done as a class and two will be individual. There will also be a portfolio required at the end of the quarter, along with several in-class activities.(Don't worry, it's sounds like a lot, but it's fun.)

This class is graded CR/NC. In order to receive credit, all students will need to attend every class (no unexcused absenses) and ALL assignments must be turned in on time.
