ANTHR 101: Social/Cultural Anthropology

You and your
Teaching Assistant

Your TA will be your lifeline throughout this course. He or she will run your Friday lab section and be there as a resource for you to help you succeed. TAs also handle any and all special accommodations, so if you have a letter from the University Accessibility Center please take it directly to your TA. All correspondence regarding this course must first go through your TA. If you have issues with your TA or lab section, please contact the Head TA, who will help resolve issues and bring urgent issues to Dr. Hickman. Grading will be done by a mix of TAs, and there is no guarantee that a single TA will grade your work. However, our grading procedures are rigorously standardized acrossed our team of TAs.


Your TA wants to see you succeed in this course. However, you too must do your part. We will not hold your hand, but instead will hold you responsible for knowing what reading assignments are coming up, when assignments are due, and class policies.
