In determining grades on papers, major factors to be considered include whether or not the assignment was completed correctly and in a timely manner. Five points will be deducted for papers submitted late, and up to five points will be added for papers submitted prior to the due date.
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Assignments should be turned in on or before the due on which they are due. Certain work may be made up in cases of legitimate absence. The instructor must be notified (phone, e-mail, or pager) prior to the absence for the absence to be considered excused. Five points will be deducted for papers submitted late and up to five points will be added to papers submitted prior to the due date. Missed examinations must be made up prior to the next scheduled class period, unless arrangements are made with the instructor. For papers submitted after the due date, five (5) points per day late will be subtracted from the earned score.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
It is expected that members of the class will treat each other with respect and dignity. There will be many different views and opinions and no one should be chastised or ridiculed for their contribution to the class. Use of laptop computers for taking class notes is acceptable but their use for checking e-mail and other social media is distruptive to the class and is prohibited. Students should read the scheduled material and come to class properly prepared to discuss the scheduled lesson.
