POSTSECONDARY LANGUAGE DICTIONARY 6 Class participation looks different in every class. Speak to your class instructor to understand the expectations of class participation and to share any concerns you might have. Make an appointment with your instructor! TIME MANAGEMENT HIGH SCHOOL • Back-to-back classes, with the exceptions of spares. • Same lunch period each day. • Attending school every day. • School ends at the same time each day. • Attendance is monitored and mandatory. UNIVERSITY (MORE INDEPENDENCE!) • No assigned lunch period, classes are spread out and there may be days off. • School does not end at the same time each day, unless you have planned it. • Attendance may be mandatory for some classes, but not others. • Attendance is factored in as part of the grade (usually between 5-15% or more). • No one will contact a student to make sure they are attending class. ADDITIONAL NOTE • Read the course syllabus for expectations on attendance. • Students are responsible for creating and managing their own schedules. • Students should seek out the appropriate supports to assist with developing a schedule that works for them.
