Dress for Success: For your speeches only. When I Critique: One of the many things I grade on Appearance. For each speech, ( except for the news reports and the Extemporaneous speakers) dress as if you are going for a job interview. Please no! shorts, no! flip flops, no! tank tops, No! t-shirts that have designs or heavy writing on them, no! torn or jeans with holes and no! dress or tops that are too revealing. All of these are distracting to the audience and to your to be Boss. Dress to show off yourself, dress for success for a boss, CEO or even a Professor.
By enrolling at Midwestern State University a student assumes the responsibility for becoming familiar with and abiding by the general rules of conduct. Please read the student code of conduct in the student handbook.
Class time: Class begins: 12:00=Noon and ends at 12:50. And at 1:00 p.m. and ends at 1:50.
Do not be late to class. Make sure you sign the attendance sheet upon entering the classroom. One comment: “Being to class on time is Not getting to class 5 or 10 seconds late or 20 minutes late and saying you are “sorry”. If you are late please write down the time you came into the class.
** Two late entries is counted as one absent.
** If you leave early it is counted as one absent.
The door will be locked do not knock. I am your Boss, CEO of your company and your professor and you will disappoint me by coming in late and unprepared. I prepare the lesson for you and you give me back the same respect and hard work as I will give you.
Only 5 Absences and I drop you with an F. I always give you an e-mail saying you are getting close to the 5 absences. Please communicate with me. Reasons for being absent: “None“ except for illness and I will need a Doctors note. The school only gives you 3 absences but in Mass Communication, we give you 5 absences. MWSU also gives you a “death in your immediate family” absent but not death of a friends or friend’s family member absent.
Remember, you have paid for the class, you are getting paid back by attending the class, all the wonderful things you will learn and the grade you receive from your Professor.
