Marilyn Stokstad. Art History: Volume I (w/ CD-ROM). Second Edition Revised. (Upper Saddle River, NJ: Prentice Hall, 2005) [ISBN 0-13-145528-1]. You may use an earlier edition of the textbook, but will have to regularly check the most current edition of the book on reserve in our library in order to properly prepare for tests. Not all the illustrations or text will be available to you in earlier editions.
I have ordered the textbook pre-packaged with the Practice Tests book shown below. A limited number of these packets are available from the bookstore and are approximately $1 more expensive than the textbook alone [ISBN 0-13-167366-1].
Textbooks can be purchased though the MBS bookstore

Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, examinations, and gallery/museum tours.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Assessment in this course is by means of:
Late Submission of Course Materials: Assignments will be accepted up to one week after their due date, but will be penalized one letter grade (10 percentage points). Exams missed with a valid excuse (approved by instructor in advance) can be made up in the testing center. Students may NOT make up quizzes for any reason. Quizzes are given at the beginning of the class and tardiness will result in a recorded grade of 0.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Please turn cell phones and pagers off during class. Students who disrupt class with these items will be asked to leave and could suffer appropriate penalties for tardiness (see attendance policy). While the instructor will ask for students' opinions of some of the art presented in class, please be respectful. Loud, abusive, and disrespectful commentary will not be tolerated.
Pay attention in class. Dates for exams and assignments are subject to revision!! This is an intensive reading class. You are asked to read the appropriate sections of your textbook for the subjects listed. These readings should be completed prior to the class for which they are assigned. I do not give written assignments in this class. Study and review the material on a continuous basis and keep up on your readings. I cannot emphasize this enough. If you wait to begin your readings or to begin serious study until exam time, you will perform poorly in this class. I can guarantee it.
A short quiz will be given every Tuesday morning at the beginning of class and there will be no make-ups. The quizzes will be primarily based on textbook readings. This is to encourage you to maintain your own reading and study schedules in order to keep up with the rest of the class. (I will drop the lowest 2 scores of all quizzes when calculating your grades. If you are absent during a quiz, or miss the quiz because you are tardy, that score of 0 will be dropped before final grade calculation.)
A trip to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art on your own time is also required. You will receive a handout outlining a short paper to be written in conjunction with this museum outing.

Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90In case of illness or emergency, the instructor must be notified prior to class by leaving an email message. With this prior notification, individuals are allowed 2 absences which will be recorded as Excused. Additional absences will hurt your grade dramatically. Your final semester grade will be lowered for each additional absence from class.
A professional and respectful attitude toward the instructor and fellow students is expected. Two instances of the following will count as one absence: tardiness of more that 10 minutes, leaving before class is dismissed, falling asleep in class, and other class disruptions(i.e. phone calls, etc.). These will be noted and reflected in the final grade.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
