TOTAL

Note: Each class period has an assigned reading for it.  On each day of class I will pass a roll around for you to mark whether you have done the assigned reading.  These points are for attendance in class that day as well as the reading.  Each day will be worth 2 points and cannot be made up.  In addition to the reading for each class period, you can receive 50 points for an additional reading of the second half of the Book of Mormon (Alma 30 - Moroni 10).  These are not extra credit points—if you don't do the extra reading you will loose the equivalent of half a test in points.

 Class Preparation and Attendance

You should come to class each day having read the assigned portion of the Book of Mormon and be prepared to discuss it.  You should always bring a copy of the Standard Works with you to class.  Since a significant portion of the exam questions will be based on the classroom discussion, it is to your advantage to be there.  One or two absences may not hurt you, excessive absences will.  In cases of illness, family emergencies, etc. please see me.  Quizzes will be given during the first 10 minutes of class on the day scheduled.  If you come late, you will not have the full time to take the quiz.  The quizzes will cover the assigned reading for that day.

Honor Code and Dress Code 

“It [the Honor Code and Dress Code] is for all students to accept and agree to live by.  A statement of principle concerning honesty, charity, purity, modesty, and commitment.”

                - President Hinckley, BYU Devotional, October 18, 1994
