Learning activities

Be prepared for every class with your pen, paper, completed homework, course notes and laptop (if necessary).

Being prepared for class also means you are prepared to participate, listen actively and take notes, and always ask questions when you do not understand.

You are expected to speak only English during class and learning activities. You and your class will determine the consequence for breaking this rule.

Use Blackboard to participate in discussion boards, group assignments, journals, blogs and wikis. Your instructor will use Blackboard to communicate announcements about the course, and post assignments, presentations and grades.
