Hi Andrew in Kabul!

ATTENDANCE POLICY... from the syllabus (link above)

Class Policies: 1. Regular class attendance is expected. Students are allowed five unexcused absences.
Use them wisely. More than five will result in a lowering of the semester grade by one letter. When
possible notify the instructor prior to an absence via e-mail. Presentations may not be made up without
prior notice of need to reschedule. Seven absences will result in an administrative removal of the student from the course. Do not expect leniency on this. 

Three tardies = one absence.                        Cell phone = absent.

2. Please refer to your student handbook for rules of conduct.      

3. Dishonesty is not tolerated.

Listen! Take notes as you listen to this wonderful music!
