Feedback from TAs:

Go to lab early:  Should be in your seat ready to go before 12:49pm!  If late: 1% off course grade for each lateness!

If you are not speaking, and do not have a lab role, your job in lab is to write thoughtful, lengthy critiques of the speakers.  You are expected to remain in lab the entire time.  If you choose to leave early you lose 1% from your course grade.  Only extreme emergencies beyond your control such as death and the family, serious illness, or accident, are excused.

Be sure you know your Speech date and lab role assignment, these have been updated!
