Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Civility: Some sociological theories do challenge common
conceptions and beliefs on subjects. Classroom discussions are a vital part of
the learning process. This class needs
to be a participatory community of students engaging these theories if students
are to fulfill their potential for learning.
Some forms of argument are improper for a University classroom. Screaming at other students or the instructor,
abusive language, or attempting to silence an opposing view through verbal
intimidation will not be tolerated. Such actions can and will result in Draconian
consequences. In order to achieve our educational goals and to encourage the
expression, testing, understanding and creation of a variety of ideas and
opinions, respect must be shown to everyone.
Academic Integrity: Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of
academic dishonesty constitute a serious violation of University conduct
regulations. Students who engage in
dishonesty in any form shall be charged with academic dishonesty. Please see your student handbook for a
definition of all types of academic dishonesty.
If you are found to have violated the academic integrity policy of this
university, you will be given a failing grade for the class. For clarification of the specific policies,
students should familiarize themselves with the undergraduate catalog section
on academic honesty and plagiarism.
best way to contact me is via email. I
will check my email several times throughout the day. In the subject line of your email, put your
