Attendance • Mandatory • Each class will have a quiz where I will play a film score.

Incorrect answers, get no extra credit. We take roll from these sheets of paper. One sheet per customer - no handing in sheets for friends.
Grading • • Test 1 (mid-term): 20% Test 2 (final): 33% Paper 1 (mid-term): 15% Paper 2 (final): 32% • Attendance - miss more than three classes and risk failure. • Extra credit - three or more correct answers and increase grade by half a step.
Grading • I do grade on percentage • I do not grade on the curve • If you learn what I ask you to learn, attend class, do the reading, do well on the tests, write great papers, then you get an A, no matter how many others get an A. • And so on.
EMAIL • For excused absences please email Giacomo Fiore - gf@giacomofiore. com • For legitimate questions or suggestions email David Cope - howell@ucsc. edu • We receive literally hundreds of emails a day, so we’ll answer questions in class and probably not answer directly.
