Attendance is vital to your success and continuation in the class. In order to facilitate attendance and to enhance your understanding of the weekly topics, there will be a weekly discussion topic. You will need to respond to the discussion topic by Wednesday of each week (minimum 200 words) and reply to a fellow classmate’s response by Sunday. Your discussion posts need to be thoughtful, well written and thoroughly cover the topic. You should read the assigned reading for the week before responding to the discussion topic in order to cover it thoroughly. I will be responding to the discussions as well.
In order to be counted present for class you must post an initial response by Wednesday, post a reply to at least one other student’s initial post by Sunday and complete the assignment for the week by Sunday. Not doing these activities will result in an unexcused absence for you. Three consecutive absences or a total of five will result in a drop.
