Start of the Semester Resources & Information

  1. 1.  Instructor: Vicki Lague Office: 2202-5 Office Hours: Online (search by last name) How to Contact Me:  Angel Email: (Log into Angel - fastest method)  Email: vlague@mdc.edu (if no Angel access)  Phone: 305-237-0921
  2. 2.  Part 1: You can access our syllabus online in Angel. It includes the basic info for the course, like the books and the schedule for the semester. If something happens in class , like we don’t get to finish everything that was planned so something is moved to the next class, you will need to make note of the update since I will not change the syllabus.
  3. 3.  Part 2: The Ground Rules are part of the syllabus. They are available on my website and in the syllabus in your Angel course on the home page. It is your responsibility to read, understand and follow the Ground Rules. The syllabus as a whole constitutes a contract that you agree to follow when you are in a course.
  4. 4.  My Faculty Website: http://faculty.mdc.edu/vlague/ Angel: http://mycourses.mdc.edu Criterion: http://criterion.ets.org/ OWL of Purdue University http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/
  5. 5.  Course grade = Weighted Averages To pass the course, you must earn an weighted average of 70% (C-). The weighted averages mean that some assignments are worth more credit toward your course grade than others. See your syllabus for the details for your course. Any extra credit that I may offer will be “extra,” meaning it will not replace missing, required assignments. I will not give someone extra credit work to “help” him or her pass the course at the end of the semester.
