9CP Tips for Success

  • Study for the vocab quizzes.  They're a gift of points if you put in the time.
  • Do your homework.  If you don't, the missing points add up fast.
  • Bring your book.  I do random book checks for points.  Like homework, they can add up if you're not careful.
  • Do the reading.  No, really, I mean it!  Often there are reading quizzes, and they can be quite challenging.
  • Essays by far constitute the largest percentage of your grade, so take them seriously.
  • If you forget to turn in an assignment, follow my late work policy and turn it in late at the beginning of the next class meeting for a maximum of half credit.  50% is better than 0%.
