Any student with a documented disability (e.g., physical, learning,
psychiatric, vision, or hearing, etc.) who needs to arrange reasonable
accommodations must contact the instructor and the Disability Resource
Services Office (165 Murphy Library) at the beginning of the semester.
- Professor Bulk will be responsible for making up the course examinations as well as grading them.
- A Hmong resource center in Murphy Library will be in place for students to
use while working on their course projects.
- Additional handouts may be brought to class at the instructor's discretion
but these should be regarded as supplemental to the required course readings posted
in this syllabus.
- All required readings that have been photocopied for class usuage must be
returned to Professor Bulk either on or before the day of the course exam that these
readings pertain too! [If you would like to keep any of these course reading
assignments, it is up to you to make copies of your own but you must return the
copies that have been loaned to you.] This will allow us to offer the course again
without the cost and inconvenience of having to recopy all these course handouts.
- You are encouraged to consult with any of the course instructors listed
on the home page regarding any concerns or course-related
questions that you may have. And as regards to your term paper projects you are
particulary encouraged to consult with the course instructors. However, you are
asked specifically to not consult with Professor Bulk regarding your term
projects in order to perserve "fairness" in the grading of these term projects
(since he will be grading them all).
- Your class participaion is greatly encouraged and you should feel free to ask
questions of any course instructor at any time whether that be before, in the middle
of lecture, or after class.
- While your class attendance is not graded, your success in this class will be
directly related to your class attendence especially since the exam materials will be
drawn so heavily from the lecture presentations and subsequent class discussions.
Make no mistake about this!
- Have a great semester! Have no fear! This class will not be any more difficult
than the average CLS class at this university. If you attend class regularly and do the
assigned readings, you should have no problems.
- This is a great learning opportunity. Please take full advantage of it.
