  • Policy Statement - Myers
    emphasizes the writing process and focuses on revising workshopping and editing Therefore CO301A is designed as an interactive writing workshop in which you will learn from working closely with one another Students will approach the essays of their peers critically relying on each other for ideas and feedback Therefore active participation in group work is essential This is a very demanding course You must be willing to commit significant time and effort to successfully complete CO301 Attendance and Tardiness Students are expected to attend all class sessions and work only on CO301 writing assignments during class You are also expected to come to class prepared each day even if you were absent during the previous class period As for absences you are allowed to miss four classes with no questions asked However keep in mind that taking more than four absences will result in a lowering of your final grade by a maximum of 5 for each class period you have missed over the designated limit I also reserve the right to count you absent if you show up for class unprepared For example be assured that if you come to class on a workshop day without a workshop draft you may be asked to leave Be warned If you are not present when attendance is taken you will be counted absent It is your responsibility to inform me after class if you have arrived late so that I can add your name to the attendance record as tardy instead of absent Please note If a student receives four tardy markings in the attendance book they will be counted as one full absence Late Papers Out of fairness to all students late assignments will be penalized An assignment is considered late if you have failed to hand in your assignment
