HOW TO SUCCEED IN YOUR CLASSES?,
The 5 Agreements
ALL WORK MUST BE TYPED. Number your work!. Keep copies of all your work (thumb drive, etc.). Students will receive periodic feedback on their work from the professor.
STUDENT SUCCESS CLASS GUIDE
How to be successful in your class:
#1 How to prepare for class: You should bring whatever course materials apply (notebook, Success guide, recorder, etc. - I talk fast!).
#2 What to expect during class: Questions. Review of earlier material. Video / multimedia assessment. Lecture over new class materials/information, and more questions, to give you an opportunity to gain comfort with new skills & information. Review of due dates for assignments and activities.
#3 What you should do after class: Review the course material and examples from the texts. Synthesize the lecture, readings and visuals. Work on assignments early – this will allow for time to ask critical questions. Synthesize - This is college-level thinking!
IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR GRADE, KEEP TRACK OF IT YOURSELF – number your work!
If you are ever "stuck" or if you are freaking-out over something that you think will keep you from making it - let me know. Chances are I may have been there / done that - or - I know someone who has. Don't be afraid to ask for help! - Al Smith

A NOTE ON READING: Your performance relating to weekly reading is directly linked to your success with course assignments. If you do not read the course material you will not succeed on the writing, testing, or discussion/participation levels.
Remember: you also have access to many Student Support Services, such as the Tutorial Center and the Umoja Village. The Library & Learning Center has resources that can make or break an assignment. The Writing Center is open, as is the Office Administration Center -- all of these counts towards helping with your success.
ONLY YOU can access them!
