Instructor Grove's educational philosophy is based on using a variety of methods in learning, focusing on the interactive. Lectures, readings, quizzes, group work, class discussion, examinations, writing, and use of the Internet are significant components of this learning process

Grading: Grading:Mid Term 25% Final 25% Quizzes 10 Paper 25% Oral Presentation 15%
Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor will not accept assignments late. Assignments not submitted on the due date will receive a grade of “zero”. If students know they are going to miss it is their responsibility to submit the assignment prior to the due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: 1. Instructor is not responsible for contacting absent students or providing items from missed classes. 2. Be prepared for class. This means that you have read the assigned readings and are prepared to discuss them. This course will consist of class discussion, small group discussion, group work, and lecture. You are expected to take part in the discussions and group work. Your in-class participation is evident in your grades through the oral presentations, chapter discussions, etc. Also, assigned reading will not always be reviewed in class, but examinations will be from both assigned readings and class discussions. 3. No makeup exams will be given unless the student makes arrangements to take tests prior to the due date if they are not going to be present. 4. Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes
