Punctual attendance is mandatory. Since this class meets twice a week more than three unexcused absences are unacceptable in this class and the result will be no evaluation. If missing class is unavoidable it is up to you to, catch up on what you missed in class, look up the weekly assignment on the web page, talk to other students to find out what was covered in class and meet with the teacher if necessary. If you are due to give a presentation or have an observation that you will be unable to attend, it is up to you to contact the instructor and the teacher you are scheduled to observe via. e-mail or voice-mail before the presentation or observation was scheduled and re-schedule.
You are required to hand in all of your course work. Assignments missed will be noted in your evaluation and an unacceptable amount of missing course work will result in no evaluation for this class.
Full class participation is expected from everyone.
This class will also be an important part of your first semester at Hampshire experience. During this class you will become increasingly familiar with Hampshire College, the campus, the divisional system, requirements, evaluations and the basic landscape of the college. We will discuss day-to-day issues on Hampshire campus and hopefully this tutorial will become a comfortable space for you to ask questions and share thoughts and concerns about your first semester experiences.
