Teachers must be willing learners who embody what they hope to cultivate in their students—curiosity and joy of learning, courage to risk being wrong, ability to connect the classroom to the world around it as a desirable way to enrich and empower genuine mobility in personal, social, and professional life. Teachers must also have at heart, the understanding that little of value can be communicated without first establishing and maintaining a human, mutually respectful relationship. In other words, teachers must model what they ask of and expect from the students they teach, and they must enter the classroom with a disposition toward teaching-learning as an “us-we” instead of “me-them” effort.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes

F WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CONDUCT & PROCEDURES E
· Email is essential to this course. All students are to check their PirateMail at least twice a week. Typically, several days may pass when no email is sent, only to be followed by several emails in one day. Students are to notify the instructor as soon as possible if they have difficulty accessing their PirateMail accounts. Students who do not regularly check email run the risk of losing points on assignments, misunderstanding important information, not having materials needed for an activity or assignment, etc.

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 2007-2008 Graduate Catalog Page 24-26
Plagiarism involves the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.
Park University 2007-2008 Graduate Catalog Page 24-26
Professors are required to maintain attendance records and report absences. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor, for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands, including temporary duty. Students are responsible for any missed work. Absences in excess of four (4) class periods, in a 16-week semester (or 2, in an 8-week term) will be reported to the Director of the individual graduate program, or to the Dean, for appropriate action. Students with such a record of absences, without an approved excuse, may be administratively withdrawn from the class and notified by mail that an "F" will be recorded, unless the student initiates official withdrawal from the class(es).Park University 2007-2008 Graduate Catalog Page 28? IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE ATTENDANCE POLICY ?
• In an 8-week course meeting twice a week, students may have no more than one (1) excused absence. One additional absence from what is allowed for this course will drop the final course grade by one full letter grade. Two additional absences from those allowed will drop the final course grade by two letter grades.
• Late arrival and early departures of 15 minutes or more past the scheduled class starting and ending time each count ¼ of an absence.
• It is considered standard professional courtesy for the student to notify the instructor by phone or email ahead of time of any and all absences or late arrival/early departures (excepting emergencies).
• In the event of an absence from tutoring session, students are required to call and personally notify the cooperating teacher and, if possible, speak to the learner being tutored, apologizing for the absence. Students must obtain the school and, if applicable, teacher phone numbers before beginning involvement as tutor.
• The following will be unconditionally excused and require documentation: medical or dental emergency, student's hospitalization, serious illness of close family member, natural disasters (e.g., fires, flood, etc.), jury duty, unexpected military call-up, death in family.
• The following will not be considered for excused status: job schedule, wedding or other family event, other class schedule, and other situations that are avoidable by responsible planning. If students are in doubt, ask the instructor first. The instructor will uphold the policies set out in this syllabus.
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 .
F WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ASSIGNMENTS IN GENERAL E
o Assignments should be submitted on time even if student is absent (excepting emergencies). Use fax, email, ask fellow class member and/or friend to deliver to instructor’s mailbox, rm. 309 on the third floor of Copley Hall, or to box on instructor's office door.
o Late assignments will result in loss of 1 point per day late.
o Assignments submitted before or on their due dates listed in the Schedule of Sessions at the end of this syllabus may be revised for more points until midnight of the last scheduled class session before finals week.
§ Any assignment submitted after the due date will not be eligible for revision unless it is, due to circumstances that meet criteria for excused absence, including documentation.
§ Assignments must be submitted in person to qualify for evaluation for points. The instructor will not print, evaluate, or score emailed assignments. The only purpose for emailing assignments is to establish submission date & time.
§ If computer/technology accessibility or problems interfere with meeting a due date, an assignment may be emailed by midnight of the day it is due to establish on-time submission. A hard copy must still be submitted to the instructor to qualify for evaluation for points.
§ Each time an assignment is submitted for re-evaluation, it must include all previous drafts and rubric scoring/written feedback from the instructor. This is to support consistency and fairness in grading. Any revised assignment that does not have previous draft(s) and feedback will be returned to the student until it is accompanied by previous drafts & instructor’s rubric/feedback.
o Students are responsible for reading and understanding this syllabus, rubrics and other course materials in eCompanion to know what assignments are required, when they are due, how to do them, how they are scored, and any other pertinent information. Points have been deducted because failed to follow syllabus directions and/or study the rubrics in eCompanion.
o Course materials too detailed or lengthy for this syllabus (rubrics, directions, handouts, etc.) will be provided for students to download and print from eCompanion. (NOTE: before printing, adjust the font size to avoid overlarge type and excessive amounts of pages!)
o Questions and/or concerns regarding assignments will be handled before or after class, during breaks, during office hours, by appointment, or by phone or email. If a question or concern is raised that the instructor deems important for the entire class, the instructor will inform the class via email. Ideas for improvement are most welcome! A significant portion of this course is the result of previous students' creative and helpful ideas.
F WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WRITTEN ASSIGNMENTS E
Writing skills are an essential part of all typewritten assignments. Errors in basic writing skills, and failure to proofread and/or correctly use the model for formal written assignments result in loss of points. Your future administrators expect their teachers to have the basic writing skills they will be teaching to children; teachers need the respect and cooperation from both administrators and parents that clear communication helps create. Therefore, all written and spoken communication will be subject to correction. (This includes the instructor!)
To avoid point loss, as well as save time and energy, students are expected to:
o Use the “Model for Formal Writing” provided in eCompanion. It will show you how typewritten assignments are to be formatted. It will also provide you with examples of proper technical writing skills, including examples of the most common errors that are responsible for the highest loss of points.
o Use “Proofreading Tips” provided in eCompanion. carefully for technical skills errors, missing words, missing letters, making all necessary revisions; and
o Make certain terms and phrases are used correctly for meaning, and that what is written can be easily understood by a parent, another teacher, and/or administrator. All assignments receiving rubric points include a score for correct basic writing skills.
