Medieval Latin Paleography

Attendance: In general, I will expect you to attend all class meetings and to be fully prepared to discuss the assignment. Of course, things happen, and occasionally you may not be able to make class; when that happens, let me know as soon as possible by e-mail or phone. If you miss two classes, you can expect your grade to suffer; if you miss four, you will fail the class. I also take a rather dim view of persistent and habitual lateness.

Conferences: You will be required to meet with me two times during the quarter to discuss your work, the dates will be arranged in class.

Assignments: Work is due at my office in Green 351B or my mailbox in Bldg. 90. If you need an extension, you must arrange for it in advance.

Grading and Revisions You have the option of revising and correcting all your papers, and I encourage you to do so. I will return your original papers with plenty of comments but no grade; it is up to you to decide if you want to make changes and how many to make. If you decide to revise, please arrange a second due date with me; if not, let me know your decision within a week.

Paper Formatting: Papers should be machine-printed, in 12-point Times Roman or the equivalent (no giant fonts!), with 1" margins, doublespaced. I will accept attachments but not as substitutes for hard copy.

Plagiarism: Violating the Honor Code is a serious offense, even when done unintentionally. You can find it spelled out in detail in the Stanford Bulletin, and it is your responsibility to understand it. Please don’t hesitate to come to me if you have any questions. These policies are themselves a revision of Meg Worley's class policies; they do not represent original work. If submitted as class work without attribution, they would correctly be described as an example of plagarism.

Dual Submission: Handing in a paper to satisfy two assignments (for me and for another instructor) is permitted only with the permission of the instructor.

Incompletes: I seldom give incompletes except in cases of serious illness or injury.
