* Essay late penalty: 3% per day including weekends. No essays will be accepted more than 7 days beyond the due date without a valid excuse (that is, if you do not submit your essay within 7 days of the due date then your essay mark will be zero).
**Please read carefully the web page on participation. In this course, in addition to the requirements described there, you may be asked to open the discussion. That means: just comment very briefly (1 or 2 minutes) on the reading or media assignment. You will be informed at least a few days in advance. Failure to prepare for this will lower your participation mark by up to 15%.
