I mean business... Avoid distractions from the learning (e.g., cell phones, headphones, etc.) Be on time for lesson. Every time you are late or not in class, means less learning you will accomplish.

be doing in the rest of the lesson. Review what you have learned before and that youll continue learning. Get you to understand Why you are learning what you are learning Expectations: Group Work I use a lot of group work to help you understand ideas and what I am trying to

teach you. Challenges and disagreements. Helps build your skills. Please talk to me sometime this week if this will be a problem for you. Expectations: Participation If you come to my class, be prepared to work and participate. Smile

hand in your work on time. 10% late penalty. Keep the rough-copies of your work. Reading Writing Oral Communication Media Studies All of your course work (e.g.,

Take pride in your work. I dont want you to hand in work that is poorly presented. Ive noticed a lot of students who have taken courses here at SCAS must review their grammar. Please review sentences (simple, compound and complex) and punctuation (semi-colon, colon, comma and periods). At college, you need to present yourself in a professional manner.

That means no swearing for the sake of it, and use words that are professional sounding and that are Thoughts? http://www.lifehack.org/articles/communication/20-most-inspiring-ted-talks-all-timethat-you-should-not-miss.html How would you summarize the main points of this presentation? 1.
