I will take attendance. If you are unable to attend class because of illness or emergency, please contact me (a note in my departmental mailbox or, better yet, via e-mail), or send a message via one of your classmates. Sniffles, away-games, or heavy work in other classes do not constitute excusable absences: if you are having schedule difficulties, however, do speak to me before you have to miss class.
You are encouraged to discuss your paper topics and drafts with me well in advance of the final due date: you may revise as many times as you wish, but once you turn in your essay for a grade, the grade cannot be changed. More weight will be given to the papers at the end of the course, however; I am interested in your best work. On Thursday Dec. 4, you will turn in a portfolio with all of your previous papers--including any preliminary drafts with my comments--along with your fourth paper.
