Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Classes will consist of lecture, class discussions, and group projects. A field trip to jail/prison and at least one guest lecturer are also planned for this course: Students are expected to participate in class and to present information and research.
Chapter Questions: You must write 15 responses of at least one page, using the first fifteen chapters of the text and an additional source and answering two or more of the questions at the end of the chapter. (Your choice.) Citations are necessary. These papers are due on the day the chapter is being discussed. If the chapter is listed for discussion two days, then the short response is due the second day. In order to gain complete points (10 per paper) you must present your response, without reading it, when called upon. (Most students will be called upon.) Late papers will loose 5 points per class day of lateness.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Certain work may be made up in cases of legitimate absence. Legitimate absences include student illness, death in the immediate family, and approved activities where students represent the college. I have the right to make the final decision on what absences are legitimate and when make-ups will be allowed or given. Generally, tests will not be given after the class has taken them. Once the test has been returned to the class, no student can take the test for a grade.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
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 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86
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 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-88My Attendance Policy: In order to do well in this course, students should attend class. Material presented in class lectures and in discussions can be gained in no other way. If you must be absent, please inform me before class by calling my office. Classes missed for legitimate reasons are excusable only by prior approval. This means that excuses for athletic events must be given before class. Students are responsible for making up any work missed and for turning in any assignments before the missed class. Five points will be deducted from class participation for every class missed
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.
