  • 2. Textbooks and Required MaterialsThere is no textbook required. I highly recommend purchasing or renting: How to Develop a Professional Portfolio A Manual for Teachers 5th Edition By Campbell, Cignetti, Melenyzer, Nettles & Wyman ISBN-13: 978-0-13-703454-3 ISBN-10: 0-13-703454-7PRE-REQUISITE SKILLS:Students need basic computer skills to access the Internet, send emails, and upload documents. Youwill also need basic skills in word processing and presentation software, like Microsoft Word andPowerPoint.Student ContributionsCourse Work:  All assignments are due on the date assigned. Unless prior arrangements are made, late work is not accepted. After the first week of the semester, if the student does not log into the Blackboard (Bb) class, submit assignments/communicate with the instructor, I will withdraw the student for lack of attendance.Attendance:  The college recognizes that punctual and regular attendance is the student’s responsibility. In this online class attendance is demonstrated through regular participation in class assignments requiring collaboration and on-time submission of assignments.  It is the student’s responsibility to drop the course. During the first week of the term, a student may drop a course or completely withdraw without its being recorded on the students official transcript. After the first two weeks a “W” will be recorded in any course the student drops. A student who stops attending but fails to drop or withdraw from the course will be given an F grade. NOTE: No course may be dropped or withdrawn from after 75% of the course or 12 weeks of the term has elapsed, whichever is earlier. An Incomplete (I) grade may be available in the event that unexpected circumstances prevent the completion of the course after the twelfth week.Behavior:  You are expected to conduct yourself in a positive and professional manner in this class environment. All other class members should be treated with respect.  You will receive a warning concerning inappropriate behavior. If the behavior persists, you will be referred to the Office of Student Enrichment, and if the problem persists it may result in removal from the course.Revision date: 12/23/11 2
