Your Information and Your Plan - Course _________  Class Days_____ Class Hours _______ Date_______

1.       PRINT your complete name in WCJC records, phone number, and WCJC email address so I can reliably reach you in an emergency.

 

WCJC Name: _________________________________    Phone # ___- ___-____   WCJC Email: _____________________________

 

2.       Place a check in the ___ to the left of EACH of the 4 statements to confirm that you understand the statement:

 

For every 1 credit hour in class, you need 2 to 3 hours outside of class in preparation. If you are taking 12 credit hours, you need a MINIMUM of 36 hours a week (12 in class + 24 in preparation outside of class). – Click here for WCJC’s link on this.

 

To succeed, you need to plan your college work to match both your current life and future goals. - This form is to help you plan.

 

Write the Course Due Dates and what you plan to do on a calendar that you use each day—electronic, a pretty one you bought, or one you downloaded for free from the Internet. I really suggest a month-in-view, not a daily planner.

 

This course provides online resources to save you time and match how you learn. I will show you how to use them even if you have limited Internet access and limited computer access. If you have neither, see me for alternatives for assignment instructions and for the one resource you cannot get from class. Tip: Save files, but print only those things that help you take notes efficiently in class.

 

3.       Place a Y to the left of YOUR planned grade.
_ an A (895-1000 points)  _ a B (795-894 points)  _ a C (695-794 points)  _ D (595-694 points)  _ F (594 or less)

 

4.       As we talk, record what you plan to do—both assignments and extra credits. I provide a small print version of this table on the last page of your syllabus. Copy your choices there so you know what you said you planned to do, and record your grades as you earn them so you can keep track of your own grade. You can determine your own average by dividing your current total where you see each broad line. What you do is your decision, but my objective is to grade so that I encourage you to do things in your interests throughout the course. There are 1000 points in the course and 28 extra credit points.
