U.S. Government/U.S. Government We can have a good time in this class, but that is predicated on 3 expectations: 1. Get to class on time and get started on your warm- up. 2. When we are working stay focused and complete the task at hand. 3. Be a pleasant person and I will be a pleasant person. Follow these rules and we will not just have a good time but you will be successful in the course.
