More than 10 % of unexcused absences will result in an automatic penalty of getting F. Chronic lateness will also impact your grade. Do not miss class on a day you do not have an assignment completed, because you will lose points for absence, discussion, and a late assignment. Journal assignments are still due on weeks you are absent, and should be emailed to me before the time that class starts. In order to pass this course, you must attend at least 90% of class meetings.

  3. 3. Quality & Academic Accreditation Unit 2013/2014 Late assignments: All assignments are due at the beginning of class. Late assignments will receive a penalty of one grade step if they are handed in less than one day (24 hours) late. Your assignments will receive an additional grade step deduction for each day they are late (assignments that are between 24 and 48 hours late will receive a penalty of two grade steps. This includes weekends and holidays. No assignments will be accepted after they are one week late. Hard copies of late assignments must be turned into my office. You should also email me a copy to verify the time at which it was completed. Academic honesty: College policies on academic honesty apply to this course. All work is to be done on an individual basis, and collaboration is not permitted. You may have someone who is not enrolled in this course proofread your papers for clarity, but you may not seek outside help regarding your paper’s content. You will be required to submit a signed copy of the College honor pledge with your short paper and your final paper. Discussion: Since this course is discussion-based, your active participation is required. You should come to class prepared to thoughtfully and actively discuss the day’s readings. In order to promote open and meaningful discussion, it is important to maintain an atmosphere in which everyone feels respected and comfortable sharing ideas and opinions. Remember to avoid interrupting your classmates and do not attack them personally. Be critical of arguments, not of individuals. If you ever are feeling uncomfortable in discussion, please come talk to me. Page 3
