16. Student-Teacher Contract of Understanding

Congratulations! You plowed your way through sixteen (16) sections of Course Guidelines and your eyes are still in their sockets.

Despite the excruciating level of detail dished up in the previous sections, your exhaustive and complete understanding of these sections will propel you towards a most enjoyable and successful semester. The point of taking you through each section of the course guidelines one-by-one is to insure that you are fully aware of all that is expected of you. This course demands hard work and that means you'll need to be at your best. You will need to read, study, think and write oceanography nearly every other day for at least 1-2 hours a day. You'll also need to log in to read announcements, work on assignments, respond to your classmates and keep up with communications in the course. There's a lot to do but if you are organized, focused and committed, you will come through with flying colors.

If you think you are ready to take the plunge and are willing to commit to the time and effort required to be successful in this class, then click on the link below and come on board. And while you're at it, start reading Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea.

In any case, if you feel like you'd like to talk it over a little before you dive in, then send me an e-mail. I'm always happy to help you evaluate your schedule and priorities. With more than twelve years of college under my belt, I have a few insights to share.

To come aboard, submit your student-teacher contract of understanding prior to 1159PM, Friday, August 30, 2002. Failure to submit a contract by this time will make you ineligible for continuing in the class, in which case you should drop. While I will make every effort to drop you, dropping is your responsibility. Don't assume that I am going to drop you or you may find months or years later that you have received an F.
