The Instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, class discussions, videos, internet websites, and examples of visual art. The instructor makes every attempt to keep the subject matter relevant to world history and current events.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Coverage of the course topic will be accomplished in a variety of ways: Reading assignments, lecture, discussion, slide shows and videos. Assessment will be based on midterm and final examinations, and one page reflective essays which will be written at the conclusion of each class session. If reflective essays as a means of review and assessing the material prove to be ineffective, a quiz of equal value will be substituted. Additionally, participation points will be awarded for each class session. A rubric identifying quality participation and guidelines for reflective writing are attached to this syllabus.
Examinations: 2 exams @155 points each - 310 points
Reflective writing:12 essays @ 10 pts -120 pts (no writing on review nights or test nights)
Participation points: 14 sessions @ 5 pts each - 70 pts
Total points available: 500 points
Late Submission of Course Materials:
In the event of excused absence, the student is allowed to make up the fifteen points per session missed by reading and viewing the assigned material, summarizing the material in the form of an outline or written summary and writing a personal response in a reflective paper. Make up writing is much more inclusive than evening essays, and includes a summary of text chapters and video material. Make up essay are due one week after the excused absence takes place. In cases of longer, duty related assignments, deadlines will be determined by the instructor. Make up essays which are later than one week will have 10% of the points possible deducted for each session the assignment is late.
In the event of an unexcused absence, make up is at the discretion of the instructor. The Instructor must be notified in advance of all absences, or they are considered unexcused.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Because this is a reading and discussion course, keeping up with the assigned reading and participating in class are critical to both the students understanding of the material and the grade. Excused absences are only given in cases of duty assignments, verified by the proper paperwork, or documented emergency. The instructor should be notified in advance of such absences. In cases of unexcused absence, make up is at the discretion of the instructor.
Arriving late to class is both disruptive and rude. Participation points will be deducted for coming late to class. Leaving class early is treated similarly to tardies, with participation points being deducted.
Students who are also parents often have babysitting problems. While I sympathize with the parent, I do not allow children in the classroom, so parents should have a backup plan for babysitting.
