In the event that you are unable to attend a class meeting, you can receive PARTIAL CREDIT by submitting a written response to the assigned readings within one week. Exceptions will be made only for the excused absences specified in paragraphs (c) and (d) of section 1-501 of the policy on Class Attendance, in which case you can receive FULL CREDIT by submitting supporting documentation along with a written response to the assigned readings within one week.
In other words, when you miss class you have three options:
1. Do nothing = NO CREDIT
2. Submit written response = PARTIAL CREDIT
3. Submit written response and supporting documentation = FULL CREDIT
Your written response should be typed and include at least one substantive paragraph of summary and one substantive paragraph of critique for each assigned chapter/article.
