It is my belief that everyone in the classroom is responsible for their own work and grade. Everyone will be treated equally and with fairness. It is important for me that every students understands the material as well as the assignments in order to succeed. It is my responsibility to answer your questions and concerns regarding the class as much as it is your reasonability to let me know of them. Together we can make sure that this semester is a success for all.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Each student will be responsible for the reading assignments. Each student must submit each assignment through eCompanion. The Term Paper must be submitted through eCompanion as well as a hard copy the last day of class.Reading the book is not sufficient for passing this class. I highly recommend students to take notes and ask questions during class.
For this class there will be a Midterm and a Final Exam. This will consist of multiple choice as well as short answer questions.
There will be seven writting assignments in total including the Term Paper. Guidelines for each assignment will be provided in class. Each paper must be in APA format. Each assignment is design to help the student learn, understand, and apply what is being thought in the classroom.
Late Submission of Course Materials: All assignments turned in late will be penalized. Each day the assignment is late you will lose 1 point. Absence from class does not excuse students from turning in assignments, as they will submit assignments through eCompanion. If you know you will have a scheduling issue, please plan for that and make arrangements to submit your assignments early.
