Because of the participatory nature of the course, your attendance is very important. You are expected to be in class for the entire class meeting, so if you are more than 10 minutes late to class, or leave class for longer than 10 minutes, this will result in a 10 point deduction off your attendance grade.
If an absence occurs the class period a speech is to be given, I must be e-mailed or contacted by office phone within 24 hours. The speech may then be made up the next class time; however, one letter grade will be deducted. If the instructor is not contacted within 24 hours, the speech may be given the next class time with a two letter grade deduction. The speech must be prepared to be given when the student returns to the next class. All speeches must be presented in order to pass the course.
Tests may be made up the next attended class time either before or after class, but two letter grades will be deducted and the time of the make-up must be worked out ahead of time with me. All exams and the final exam must be taken in order to pass the course.
Each hour of class you miss, 20 points will be deducted from your attendance grade. So, since this course meets only ONE night per week then 60 points will be deducted if an entire class time is missed.
Emergencies will be dealt with on a case by case basis and are always up to the instructor’s discretion whether it is a valid excused absence. Excused absences will make allowances for late work, but the 60 points off attendance will always be deducted for each absence.
Please consult the Midwestern State University Catalog or the instructor if you have questions regarding this policy.
