- Uninformed opinions are not welcome. Observations and normative statements must be justified from an academically informed perspective.
- Tolerance must be shown to all students and perspectives in this class. Discussions and debate must take place in an environment that demonstrates respect for not only other students, but also the cultural, political, and linguistic perspectives they may hold. DO NOT assume that everyone in this class has the same opinions, experiences, ideologies, or that such perspectives are invalid simply because they are different.
