Here’s the thing about the syllabus — you should read it.
I’ll say it again — in case you’re skimming — read the danged syllabus.
It will give you lots of answers to questions about what’s due, what happens if you don’t turn something in and generally it will tell you how to make life easy for yourself in a class.
Professors think about their syllabus aas a way of planning the whole class — and they write it based on their experience teaching. Don’t ignore it.
I wrote my syllabus quiz to highlight the parts of it that you should pay the most attention to. I want you to do well and most of the questions on the syllabus quiz are there because students before you messed up those things…
So — I’ll say it again — read the fr*ckin thing — really, I’m not kidding.
