Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
A term paper approximately 7-10 pages long on a topic you choose with my approval before you start writing it. We will discuss details in class. I will expect college level work in all respects.
Three or four written answers to assigned questions at the end of chapters in the text. Each answer will be handwritten or typed double-spaced, about half a page in length. Each answer will be worth a maximum of 10 points.
Class Participation – You will add to the class in a positive way when you actively participate in class activities. You will have the opposite effect when you don’t. For example, we will have short quizzes for the purpose of allowing you to see how well you understand information or concepts. Grades on these will not go into the grade book. If you take these lightly and don’t focus on them, our time and efforts are being wasted. I will keep notes on each student to arrive at a fair grade.

10% of your grade for class participation
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Turning in work late cannot always be avoided, of course. We all have families who can get sick, or jobs we need to keep. I only ask that you inform me ahead of time about an absence due (for example) to a doctor who refuses to give you an appointment at a different time. For each absence I require a statement written by you or someone else which justifies your absence.
Cutting class is a very bad idea. Most late submission of work is due to cutting class. Attending class, and being on time, and not leaving early will help assure a good grade for class participation and a good grade in general.
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 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 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

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.
