Class Assessment: Class assignments will include, but are not limited to: (2) Examinations, (1) Book Review, Daily quizzes, Film Reaction papers, other papers, and group presentations. Each examination will cover the material for the first OR second half of the class. In other words, there will be no comprehensive exam. Each student will do a Book Review of one of the additional books listed later in the syllabus. Daily quizzes will be administered during the first part of each lecture and will cover the required reading for that class. All papers will be explained in detail as they become due. Finally, as previously stated, participation will be a part of your final grade. This includes class participation through offering opinions, ideas, and questions in class and short presentations on additional readings.
Late Submission of Course Materials: All assignments will be turned in on time. There will be a (1) letter grade reduction in all assignments turned in late. However, due to the nature of our working conditions while deployed, any significant issues with assignment due dates will be considered - as long as they are communicated to me BEFORE the assignment is due.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Classroom conditions while embarked will be inevitably ad hoc and variable. Please be flexible with the conditions and I will do my best to provide the best learning environment possible for our lectures. As far as your deportment: I expect each of you to be respectful of myself and each other. Anything less will be addressed. That being said, I do not expect any issues.
See attached Syllabus File.
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.
