Educational Philosophy: My philosophy of teaching is one of students interacting and understanding lectures, readings, quizzes, discussions, examinations, web sites and videos. I also encourage each student to strive to reach his/her highest potential by applying what they have learned and discussing issues with fellow students and the instructor openly. I also believe that constant feedback is a necessity which I will continue to administer throughout the course. I will engage each learner, encouraging the lively exploration of ideas, and issues. But my success in doing so is largely dependent upon you and your willingness to engage in class discussion, to ask questions, to share your opinions and knowledge from other learning experiences. Therefore, you will be expected to come to class prepared to discuss, debate, reflect on, analyze, evaluate and question the readings and other class material every bit as much as I am. Basically, I believe that you will get out of this class what you put into it.
Learning Activities: Various unannounced activities done in-class, such as written responses to readings or class discussions, group activities, videos, etc. NOTE: Can ONLY be made up if you have requested and been granted an excused absence.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Credit for Learning Activities is awarded to those who are present for the class period it took place. ONLY students who requested and were granted an excused absence by the next class period following the absence will be allowed to make-up a missed learning activity.
Assignments submitted at any time after the class period on the announced due date will be subject to 10% penalty for each day they are late. If you have requested and been granted an excused absence by the instructor for a class period during which an assignment is due, then you must submit the work by the alternate date arranged with the instructor. Failure to do so may also result in a 10% deduction per day after the alternate due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
The following rules of conduct always apply:
1) Demonstrate respect for yourself, your classmates, and your instructor at all times--even if you do not agree with their ideas or opinions.
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.

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 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87I will not tolerate plagiarism in any form. Please cite all work appropriately. If there are any questions at all on this subject, ASK me before you turn in work!
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90Please let me know if you need to be absent. Work will be allowed to be made up ONLY if there is a valid reason for the absence or if I am notified ahead of time.
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.
