text, it is essential that students attend class regularly.

VII. ORAL PRESENTATION: Students will be expected to present their final assignment to the class.
The oral report shall will discuss the following aspects of the project:

        How the student met the objectives of the assignment.
        How the assignment helped the student improve ACAD skills.
        What difficulties were encountered during the assignment.
        Key points of special interest to the student.
        What were the special challenges encountered.

VIII. OFFICE HOURS: Office hours are posted on the Instructor's door for students that need extra
help. The Instructor is not limited to posted office hours for extra help.

IX. NOTEBOOKS: All work shall be submitted in a notebook at designated mile posts and the end of the
quarter. Notebooks may be kept by the instructor and may not be returned to the student. The student
shall do a self assessment that will be part of the notebook.

IX CELL PHONES: Cell phones are thought to be an integral part of the 21rst Century life. They are very
useful, but not indispensable. Cell phone calls can be disruptive and in some cases rude and
inconsiderate. All cell phones shall be turned off during class. No cell phone calls (incoming or outgoing)
are allowed. Students leave the class if their cell phone rings during the class and will not be allowed to
return. The student’s grade will be adjusted accordingly.

X. Homework and drawing submittals: Drawings shall be submitted via email as they
are due.
