Attendance and Method of Grading: Successful completion of all classes requires weekly attendance, participation in classroom discussion, and completion of composition assignments. There are no unexcused absences; all absences must be cleared with Dr. Fuchs before the class.
Following is the grading scale based upon attendance, not factoring in the quality of work achieved:
A: 0 absences
B: 2 unexcused absences
C: 3 unexcused absences (unacceptable for serious composition study)
D: 4 unexcused absences
F: 5 or more unexcused absences
