In Class Assignments: Every class will include discussion, but some classes will be designated for wrap up of the previous chapter, case discussion and/or in class assignments. To prepare for discussion of the case, answer questions at the end of the chapter students are expected to read the assigned case(s) and answer the assigned questions, or read the chapter and answer the assigned questions.
If a write-up is requested, write-ups for these questions should be no more than one and a half pages in length (double-spaced and typed) and should demonstrate that the student(s) have thoughtfully considered the issues in the case or thoroughly answered the questions regarding the chapter. All write-ups should be in your own words. If two identical papers are turned in, each student will receive no credit for the assignment. Case write-ups or chapter questions will be collected only at the beginning of class. No late assignments will be accepted! If you know you will be missing class ahead of time (with legitimate reason), you may arrange to turn the assignment in early for full credit. I will not be accepting assignments via e-mail or handwritten (unless they are assigned in class), so please be sure to make arrangements to have your assignment turned in on time.
In class exercises will be done individually or in small groups. These exercises will take place at the beginning, middle, or end of class (if you come in late, you may miss the exercise for that day.) Each exercise is designed to help students apply course concepts and facilitate a greater depth of the management discipline. Write-ups will be turned in at the end of the exercise. Make-up assignments for credit will be an option for those individuals who inform me ahead of time that they will be missing class. An e-mail regarding a class absence is acceptable only if received prior to class time on the date of the absence and the time must correspond prior to your scheduled class time. Since there are no guarantees about transmission of e-mail messages, you should make any and all attempts to contact me regarding class absences.
