My name is Monica Turewicz, I’m from Chicago IL but for the past four years I was living in a tennis academy in Ojai, CA. I play for the tennis team here at Duke and if anyone enjoys tennis come out and support us whenever you want! What I want to get out of this class is to improve my writing and learn a lot about ocean acidification and its effects, I’m not completely familiar with the topic and it sounds really interesting.
You all can find me at www.facebook.com, which I’m pretty sure everyone has one.
Change #1: I’ve added an addendum to the lateness policy because of the cross-campus travel problems that many students (and professors!) are experiencing. I trust that no one will abuse this policy and we’ll all make every effort to attend class on time. The addendum is as follows:
Addendum to tardiness policy – I expect you to be on time to class: Three late arrivals (more than 5 minutes) constitute one absence. However, if you arrive late because of delayed travel from a class on west campus that ends 20 minutes before Writing 20, your lateness will be excused and will not count towards any absences. Please quickly inform me of your delayed travel from class and speak with one of your peers after class to find out what you missed.
Change #2: My office hours are now Monday & Tuesday, 10-11 am.
Both of these changes are reflected on the syllabus page and pdf download.
