                                                  effectiveness. This model encourages self-awareness, self-

                                                  supportive relationship. The Personal Responsibility Map measures
                                                  the following areas: goal-setting, self-efficacy, values congruence,

                                                  management, problem solving, and resiliency.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

    1. Learn how to use a learner’s individual needs to specific intervention strategies to improve
       achievement and personal responsibility skills.

    2. Understand and communicate the Personal Responsibility Skills concept for self-improvement.

    3. Lead introductory Personal Responsibility Skills workshops for peer groups.

    4. Bring to their classroom a variety of strategies, tactics and tools to change the traditional
       classroom into one of dynamic learning with peers.

    5. Create a cooperative classroom atmosphere and culture, which values diversity and a positive
       climate to tap the individual talents of each learner.

    6. Facilitate the development of individual curriculum applications.

    7. Lead peer discussions and small group analysis in assessing student learning using the Personal
       Responsibility Map.

NCATE Standards:

Course Expectations:

    1. Each student enrolled will participate in a nationally recognized train the exceptional student
       workshop produced by The Conover Company and sponsored by their educational institution.
    2. A student produced learning journal
    3. Post-seminar Concept Integration Paper (for two-credit only students)
    4. Student prepared Personal Responsibility Maps (2)
    5. Mid-Term (two each) and Final Examinations (for three-credit students)
    6. Attendance at all seminar and workshop sessions is mandatory for participants.

Technology Competencies. It is expected that candidates begin our program with basic computing skills
that include using Microsoft Word to write papers, accessing online research databases, and
corresponding by email. Knowledge of the use of technology-supported multimedia, such as PowerPoint
and other audio/video resources, is a plus; those who do not already have a working knowledge of their
use will develop it over the course of their program.

Communications outside of class will be by email. All students must obtain a UCCS email address and
check it regularly (at least every other day) so as not to miss announcements. An idea: if your UCCS
address is not your primary one, have emails from it rerouted to the one you check daily.

Attendance, Preparation, and Participation: Like the instructor, students are expected to come to class
on time and thoroughly prepared, meaning all assigned reading has been completed and questions on the
reading have been brought to class; concepts, definitions, examples, and procedures presented in the text
and previous classes are understood well enough to be discussed; individual or group assignments have
been prepared; and the student is ready to engage in classroom activities.

Class participation is vital for acquiring the knowledge necessary to meet the course objectives.
Additionally, students' presence and participation contribute to an interchange of ideas and experiences
that benefit everyone. The instructor reserves the right to reduce a student's grade for consistent lack of
participation.

Ethical Conduct: The responsibility for ethical conduct, academic honesty and integrity rests with each
individual member of the UCCS community. The Student Codes and Academic Policies (which may be
found at http://www.uccs.edu/~dos/studentconduct/index.html) are followed in this class. In general,
                                                      2
academic dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating on assignments or examinations, plagiarism
(which means misrepresenting as your own any work done by another), misuse of academic materials, or
interfering with another student’s work. Violations of the honor code may result in dismissal from the
program.

Diversity Statement: The faculty of the College of Education is committed to preparing students to
recognize, appreciate, and support diversity in all forms – including ethnic, cultural, religious, gender,
economic, physical, and intellectual – while striving to provide fair and equitable treatment and
consideration for all. Any student who believes that he/she has not been treated fairly or equitably for any
reason should bring it to the attention of the instructor.

Special Assistance: Reasonable accommodations will be made for students who have a documented
disability, which interferes with completion of this course. It is your responsibility to request any
accommodations before assignments are due. Please contact Disability Services (255-3354) or the
instructor if you have questions.

Military Students: Military students who have the potential to participate in military activities including
training and deployment should consult with faculty prior to registration for any course, but no later than
the end of the first week of classes. At this time, the student should provide the instructor with a schedule
of planned absences, preferably signed by the student's commander, in order to allow the instructor to
evaluate and advise the student on the possible impact of the absences.

In this course, the instructor will consider absences due to participation in verified military activities to be
excused absences, on par with those due to other unavoidable circumstances such as illness. If, however,
it appears that military obligations will prevent adequate attendance or performance in the course, the
instructor may advise the student to register for the course at another time, when she/he is more likely to
be successful.

Appeals: In any academic issue, including attendance decisions, students may exercise their right to
appeal. Should the faculty member and student be unable to agree on appropriate accommodation under
this policy, either party shall have the right to request mediation as outlined in the grievance policies of
the College of Education and the UCCS Student Standards.

ASSIGNMENTS: (graded activities)

2 Credits: Five-page concept integration paper on the concepts covered during the seminar/workshop.

3 Credits: During the entire course students will maintain a personal learning journal. Graded items of
student production include Personal Responsibility Maps One and Two, Midterms One and Two, a Final
Exam. Additionally, students will be graded on class participation.

Papers submitted to your assigned college/university/seminar instructor.

GRADE DISTRIBUTION AND SCALE:
Class participation will be evaluated through the production of each student’s prepared personal
reflections journal, student workshop produced learning tools, and by instructor observed participation in
small group sessions.
