Warm Ups: Over the course of the semester, each student will be responsible for engaging the class in 2, three to four minute warm-ups. These warm ups are short activities teachers may use at the beginning of their own respective classes and must take into consideration all students, including those with special needs.
Micro-Lesson: Students will teach 1 ten-minute lesson of their choice. This lesson must include a detailed plan which includes all lesson plan components. This lesson plan MUST be submitted to the Doc Sharing section of the course website with a clear heading no later than the day of the student’s lesson presentation. Micro-lessons which are not appropriately submitted will receive a reduction in points.
Unit: At the end of the semester, each student will be responsible for developing a 10-lesson unit on a topic of concept of his or her choice. This unit will be presented May 6. Requirements will be discussed in week 9.
Teaching Models Presentation: Each student will give a 10 minute presentation on an assigned Instructional Model. This presentation must include a handout to be distributed to each class community member and must include a power point presentation with a Sources Cited slide.
Assigned Portfolio Essays: Students will be responsible for writing no less than 9 new portfolio essays. These essays may be either performance indicators or quality indicators, will be due as listed below, must include at least one artifact if appropriate, and must be uploaded to Foliotek in order to earn full credit.
Classroom Management Handbook: Students will develop and present their personal Classroom Management Handbook. Due March 4, this Classroom Management Handbook must be turned in to the professor in paper form or on a CD. Details of the Handbook will be discussed on January 19. Presentations must include some sort of visual representation.
Late Submission of Course Materials: I do not accept late work. Because of the amount of work required for this class, I highly recommend you tackle each assignment as soon possible, allowing time for any technological “glitches” that might arise. Most assignments will be submitted through E-companion, however exceptions may be made on occasion if necessary (e.g. If your computer dies, you are more than welcome to submit a paper copy to me – as long as it is received on time).
* Exception: Final Paper will be accepted late with steep point deductions.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Pair and group discussions are a crucial component of our class. In order for these conversations to be as fruitful as possible, you are expected to be respectful of one another, open to your colleagues' ideas and perspectives, and ready to talk about given topics in a professional manner.

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 2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
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 2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95As active participation is a course requirement, attendance is mandatory and worth 30% of your final grade. You will receive 9 point deductions for each of your first 2 absences and 15 point deductions for each additional absence. As I do not give excused absences, I recommend you save your absences for emergencies!
Late Arrival: Arriving late to class makes it impossible for you to fully participate in the class and benefit from the entire lesson. For this reason, you will lose 4 participation points for arriving to class 10-20 minutes late and an additional 3 points for arriving more than 20 minutes late.
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. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
