Office Hours and Location:
11:00-12:30 on Tuesdays
IU Linguistics Club, 720 E. Atwater Street

Notes: The office is near the Optometry school, west of the intersection of Woodlawn and Atwater. If this time does not fit your schedule or you would simply like to arrange a different time to meet, please email me to set up a mutually agreeable time and place. Also feel free to email me if you have a quick question that you feel does not warrant a special meeting. You can also approach me before or after lecture or discussion. You may also contact Prof. Obeng directly if you wish to meet with him.

Course Notes and Studying for Quizzes: I recommend that you visit Prof. Obeng's course web page. He is placing his lecture notes on this page, and by reading these notes you should be able to get a good indication of what to expect on quizzes and tests. You might also want to print these notes so that you can bring them to class to follow the lecture. Webpage location:


Discussion Section Philosophy: The discussion section is our chance to think about some of the issues that are brought up in class. Please come prepared with comments and questions. I expect each student to bring one question to the discussion each week. This can be either something you didn't understand, or a topic you are interested in discussing.

Grading Policy for Discussion Section: Your attendance and participation in weekly discussion sections will count towards the overall attendance and participation grade. Small mini-assignments, such as bringing questions to discussion or doing short exercises from the textbook, will also count towards this grade.

For all other course policies, please refer to Professor Obeng's course syllabus on his webpage.
