CORE ABILITIES: A core ability is a WWCC campus-
wide attitude or skill that faculty agree should be taught
across the curriculum. The core abilities are:
COMMUNICATION, CRITICAL THINKING,
PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL RESPONSIBILITY,
DIVERSITY/APPRECIATION OF DIFFERENCES,
INFORMATION/TECHNOLOGY, and LIFELONG
LEARNING. Various parts of the class will relate to the
core abilities and integration of these will also be part of
the class outcomes.

TYPES OF INSTRUCTION: Lecture, Discussion, Hands-
on Projects, DVD’s, and Gallery Visits.
EVALUATION DEVICES: Weekly assignments, gallery
reviews, group research project, midterm exam, final exam.
GRADING: Attendance is required and is a large portion
of your grade. There will be weekly chapter readings and
assignments. The point system is as follows:

POINTS POSSIBLE: 1000

ASSIGNMENTS:
Weekly Study Guides, 10 x 35 points = 350
Gallery Reviews, 4 x 25 = 100
Hands on Projects, 4 x 25 = 100
ATTENDANCE: 50 class days x 3 = 150
MIDTERM exam: 100
FINAL exam: 100
GROUP PROJECT: 100 [early in the quarter the class will
be divided into groups. Each group will be assigned a
theme from the text. Each group is responsible for
“teaching” that theme to the rest of the class. An entire
class period will be scheduled for each group presentation]
Some assignments and point distributions may change, but
the total will still add up to 1000 points

NOTE: Late Study Guides and Gallery reviews will have 5
points deducted for each day late.
ATTENDANCE: You are allowed two unexcused
absences. After that, 3 points will be deducted for every
day missed. Gallery reviews beyond those required may be
done to make up each missed absence. You are responsible
for any content you miss when you are gone. Should a
FAMILY EMERGENCY or ILLNESS cause you to miss
an extensive amount of class I am willing to excuse your
absences, but it is up to the student to contact me and
discuss the situation. Everyone should have a study group
with at least three people they can call or e-mail to get the
notes and content missed. Every day counts. Some
questions on the midterm and the final will be based on
class discussions, so you never know what you may miss!
