1. Establishing an open environment for
intellectual stimulation via lecture, group discussion and audio visual aid.
2. Provide access to academic excellence with the latest and most current
research and discoveries through assigned group projects and Internet
3. Finally, prepare the student for critical thinking and effective
communication via writing assignments and class presentations/assignments.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Students are expected to take quizzes and submit assignments as scheduled.
Make-up exams/quizzes and submission of late assignments will only be permitted: 1)
under extenuating circumstances and 2) the student can provide written proof of an
emergency. Likewise, any assignment turned in after the
deadline is late and will not be accepted.
I do NOT accept late assignments unless
you have documentation such as a Dr.’s note, etc.! In-class assignments CANNOT
be made up.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
will be NO tolerance for comment or judgment on another student’s ability,
character, performance or experience. Disruptions to the class, whether during
lectures or classroom discussions will not be tolerated. Disruptions include
but are not limited to: disrespect towards me or your fellow classmates,
side-talking, chronic lateness, sleeping, cell phones/pagers ringing, and
text/instant messaging. All cellular phones and electronic devices must be
turned off or on vibrate during class.
