Teaching Methodology This course will be taught using a combination of methods, including lectures, videos, and class discussions based on cases, and the text. Grading System 90-100% = A Exams (2 exams, 30% each) = 60% 80-89% = B Final Exam = 30% 70-79% = C Homework / Participation = 10% 60-69% = D Under 60% = F Exam Policy: Exams must be taken during the class period for which they are scheduled, unless you have made arrangements IN ADVANCE to take the exam at some other time. Failure to do so may result in forfeiting the opportunity to take the exam. All exams (with the exception of the final) are designed to be taken in a normal class period. You will NOT be allowed to leave the room during the exam period except in an emergency situation. Leaving the room signals to the instructor that you have completed the exam. Test dates will be announced at least on week prior to the exam date. Note: No final exams will be given early so plan your end of semester travel plans accordingly. Class Procedures and Requirements: You are expected to read the chapters prior to the class as designated in advance. You are expected to actively participate in class discussion in and orderly and judicial manner (i.e. discussion based on your reading and preparation and not just whimsical conjecture). Please note: you will not pass this class by simply attending. Examinations, homework, and the in-class activities will be the criteria for grades. The class format is primarily lecture with active interaction with the class members. You are encouraged to respond to questions and or/problems when call upon. Read the chapters ahead of class, keep with the class materials and notes from the lectures and discussion, and put in the appropriate time preparing for the exams. If you do this--SUCCESS IS YOURS! Classroom Administration: Students are expected to: 1. Punctually attend all scheduled classes. 2. Be responsible for all instructions and assignments given in class as well as for the supporting textbook content. 3 3. Read the textbook material and before the lecture covering that material. This leads to a better understanding of the lecture as well as the opportunity to ask questions about material(s) in the text or review concepts/elements that were unclear or that the student did not understand. 4. Hand in assignments on the assigned due date. 5. No tobacco products are allowed during the class as this also a common courtesy. 6. Exams, except the final, will be temporarily returned and reviewed. If a student needs to spend more time reviewing or questioning the grading of the exam, he/she may see me during office hours. General Support: The computer labs in 215 Bibb Graves and 249 Bibb Graves are available for student use. Electronic Devices: All cell phones are to be TURNED OFF during the class. If they are in “silent” or “vibrate” mode, they are NOT to be taken out of your purse or pocket to be checked periodically. If your phone goes off in class, you will be asked to leave the room for the day and an unexcused absence will be charged--THIS IS JUST COMMON COURTESY TO THE INSTRUCTOR AND THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE CLASS! None of us are so important that we cannot be out of touch during the official class period time. Cell phones may NOT be used as calculators during an exam. Other electronic devices such as translators, Palm Pilots, Blackberries, etc. are also prohibited from use during an exam. The use of book form dictionaries, language translations, etc. during an exam is permitted with the prior approval of the instructor. Incomplete Work Policy: Any incomplete work at the end of the term will not be accepted unless the student can provide acceptable and clear documentation as to why the assigned work was not submitted prior to the grades being forwarded to the Registrar. Attendance Policy: 1. Attendance is mandatory. Students are expected to attend all classes. If a student misses a class it is his/her responsibility to obtain all information and materials presented (including materials covered, handouts, skills learned, and homework assignments) during his/her absence. Homework or in-class activities may be made up at a later time if the student missed the original due date as a result of an excused absence ONLY. No homework or in-class activity make-ups will be allowed for any other reason. The homework and in-class activities are a way of monitoring your participation in the course. 2. Excused absences: Excused absences have the following characteristics: a. Professor was informed prior to the absence. b. Professor determines that the absence is excused. c. Absence is of the following type: 4 1. Participation in a documented official University function that does not permit the student’s class attendance (e.g., participation in athletic events, field trips, etc.) 2. Severe illness (this does not include scheduled medical appointments nor driving someone else to doctor), a hospital stay, or a doctor's excuse saying that it is impossible for student to attend class(es) Note: Doctors excuses may be verified. 3. Death of immediate family member (grandparent, parent, sibling, or child) 4. Appearance in court with official documentation 5. Personal situations that are approved by the professor in advance of the time the student is to be absent. Cheating Policy: If you are caught cheating, you will get a course grade of "F". See ORACLE: Student Handbook, 1998-1999" pp. 56-57. Plagiarism is the act of stealing and passing off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own or to commit literary theft: present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source (Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary). Plagiarism will cause a student to get a course grade of “F”. According to the TSU ORACLE: Student Handbook, 1998-99, pp. 52, one definition of misconduct is: “Dishonesty, such as cheating, plagiarism...”. The ORACLE states on pp. 56 under the Academic Code sub-heading that: “A student is subject to disciplinary action: #3. Where the work affects or might affect a student’s grade, credit, or status in the university, a student represents to be his or her own any work which is not the product of his or her own study and efforts”. The penalty for such misconduct may be (pp. 56) “A student’s grade in the course or on the examination affected by the misconduct may be reduced to any extent, including a reduction to failure.” A student may be suspended from the University for a specific or an indefinite period. p. 56-57.
