instructor's educational philosophy is based upon lectures, examinations,
research from the Internet, writings from professional periodicals and dialog
with students. Assignments are intended to encourage thoughtful exploration of
ideas and application of information provided during the course. Contradictory
thoughts are encouraged as part of the learning process. Students are expected
to ask questions about something they do not know.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes

To complete this project, students must:
The report will provide an integrated and equitable treatment of all issues and contain the following technical components:
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
will be four quizzes collectively valued at 20% of the total grade. In
addition, there will be a mid-term and final examination valued at 25% each.
Additionally, each student will be required to complete a research paper valued
at 20%. Detail information concerning the paper will be discussed in class.
Participation will factor 10% of the total grade. Additional class work may
also be assigned during the term as per the discretion of the facilitator
attendance is a component of participation)
The grading scale is as
follows: A=90-100; B=80-89; C=70-79; D=60-69; F=0-59.
Term Exam 25%
Paper (core assessment) 20%
Quizzes 20% (5% each)
(with attendance) 10%
student is responsible for:
weekly reading assignments
a proctored mid-term and final examination
class on time & remaining for the entire period
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Makeup work for absence must be submitted via drop-box by the next class no
later than 11:59 pm MST. It will not be accepted after that unless the student
and the instructor have made prior arrangements. There is a two
point deduction for each incident makeup work is not satisfactorily completed.
Research papers will be penalized five points for each class it is late
unless the student and instructor have made an advance agreement.
Papers are late if not posted via drop-box by 11:59 pm MST. Papers that
are late two class dates will not be accepted.
Examination missed as a result of excused absence can be
rescheduled within one week after the regularly scheduled exam date
Examination missed as a result of unexcused absence will be
recorded as an "F"
There will be no examination retakes
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
and foremost, this is not an on-line class. Therefore, students who cannot
commit to attending this class as scheduled should not enroll. Students are
expected to attend class on time and to remain for the entire period.
Continuous tardiness will impact attendance grade. Leaving class must be
approved by the facilitator in order to receive attendance credit. Students
must realize that due to the compressed schedule, class time is critical.
Continued tardiness of 30 minutes or more will be cause for marking the student
absent for that class period. Students missing class must personally notify the
instructor via phone or email as soon as possible (do not text message). Asking
a student to relay messages will not be considered proper
notification. Determination of what is an excused or unexcused absence remains
with the discretion of the facilitator as per Park University policies. (See
below) Students who miss the first day of class will miss important information
about the class format, syllabus, text, exams, and core assessment assignment.
This information will not be repeated due to limited class time. However, it
will be your responsibility to become familiar with this information. Students
who are disruptive, abusive, rude, or unruly towards any student, guest, or
faculty will be removed from the class. Rude conducts towards the instructor
includes disruptive chattering, doing homework, reading a book (other than the
text) or newspaper, sleeping, or continuously leaving class to answer cell
phone. Prohibited conduct is also cause for dismissal from the class. Such
conduct includes plagiarism and dishonesty (in any manner or degree). Both will
not be tolerated. Submitting the same work (presumably your work) for two
different assignments is not plagiarism but it is considered unethical, even if
the two assignments were completed for different classes. If it is discovered
that a paper or other assignment was previously prepared for another course, or
learning institution, it is an academic impropriety and will result in a
"0" grade. Coursework must uphold the high standards of academic integrity.
Nonacademic information resources, such as Wikipedia.org, Ask.com,
Encarta.msn.com, Infoplease.com, etc are not allowed because they are not
credible, accurate, or peer reviewed. Computer technologies make writing and
revising easier. However, students must recognize that technology can also
cause problems. Problems can occur such as printers running out of ink
and hard drives crashing. Nevertheless students must be responsible
for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of these issues. Be
sure to save copies of your work to a disk, a hard drive, and print out paper
copies for backup purposes. Assignments will be delivered via E-companion
drop-box in a compatible file. Technological difficulties are not an acceptable
excuse for turning in work late.
