Teaching and Advisement
This page includes information relating to my teaching and advisement for both undergraduate and graduate students.
As a general rule, student success in my classes will be determined by: (1) attending class (including paying attention, and participating when appropriate), (2) reading ALL assigned material carefully by the due date, (3) completing all assignments in a careful and timely manner, and (4) communicating promptly with me or the teaching assistant regarding any content, grading, or attendance issues. Good study habits and time management skills are also pivotal, since they can make or break student grades, regardless of capability. Additionally, students should also avail themselves of extra credit opportunities whenever they are offered, since this sometimes makes the difference in final grades, especially in borderline cases.
I have developed the following resources for students at all levels:
- An overview of my general class policies (PDF file).
- A selected assortment of writing tips for class papers (PDF file).
- A quick anthropological style guide comparison (PDF file).
- Course descriptions and student learning outcomes for all the classes I teach.
In addition, below are pages with specific resources for graduate students:
