  Regular attendance is considered a high priority in this class.  Attendance and participation are related to the instructional goals and objectives of this course.  Students who miss class lose essential instruction.  It is important to participate in all activities.  Other students gain from your participation as well.

Work is to be shown, or loss of credit may result.
