Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
In this course your core assessment will consist of three projects, each of which is worth 20% of your grade. Each project will be centered around a theme; for each, there is a required oral presentation, body of written work, vocabulary workbook, and visual creation (please see course outline for details). Students will be given a checklist and complete list of expectations at the start of each unit.

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.

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.

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.
