RUTH	
  S.	
  AMMON	
  	
  SCHOOL	
  OF	
  EDUCATION:	
  
CONCEPTUAL	
  FRAMEWORK	
  

The	
  Ruth	
  S.	
  Ammon	
  School	
  of	
  Education	
  mission	
  is	
  aligned	
  with	
  the	
  School's	
  six	
  core	
  
values:	
  scholarship,	
  reflective	
  practice,	
  social	
  justice,	
  inclusive	
  communities,	
  
wellness,	
  and	
  creativity.	
  

 Scholarship:	
  We	
  believe	
  CSD	
  professionals	
  must	
  be	
  scholars	
  who	
  value	
  and	
  engage	
  in	
  
 lifelong	
  learning.	
  

 Reflective	
  Practice:	
  We	
  believe	
  learning	
  should	
  take	
  place	
  in	
  meaningful	
  contexts	
  
 (e.g.,	
  through	
  client	
  studies	
  in	
  the	
  classroom	
  and	
  clinical	
  internships/externships	
  
 which	
  include	
  opportunities	
  for	
  supported	
  reflection.	
  

 Social	
  Justice:	
  We	
  believe	
  that	
  it	
  is	
  the	
  role	
  of	
  CSD	
  professionals	
  to	
  serve	
  as	
  advocates	
  
 for	
  all	
  of	
  our	
  clients,	
  regardless	
  of	
  age,	
  disability,	
  socioeconomic	
  status,	
  or	
  ethnic	
  
 background.	
  

  Inclusive	
  Community:	
  Given	
  New	
  York's	
  diversity,	
  we	
  believe	
  that	
  CSD	
  students	
  must	
  
  be	
  able	
  to	
  deliver	
  culturally	
  and	
  linguistically	
  sensitive	
  services	
  to	
  people	
  with	
  
  disabilities	
  of	
  all	
  cultures	
  and	
  social	
  classes	
  across	
  the	
  lifespan.	
  Clinical	
  decision-­‐
  making	
  is	
  best	
  when	
  professionals	
  and	
  families	
  collaborate.	
  Likewise	
  collaboration	
  
  in	
  the	
  classroom	
  enhances	
  learning.	
  

  Wellness:	
  Learning	
  is	
  holistic.	
  We	
  must	
  assess	
  and	
  treat	
  the	
  whole	
  person,	
  not	
  just	
  
  the	
  speech,	
  language,	
  or	
  hearing	
  disorder.	
  In	
  addition,	
  our	
  students	
  learn	
  about	
  
  preventative	
  and	
  early	
  interventions	
  which	
  can	
  help	
  minimize	
  severity	
  of	
  certain	
  
  disorders.	
  

   Creativity/The	
  Arts:	
  We	
  believe	
  in	
  the	
  value	
  of	
  creativity	
  and	
  artistic	
  expression	
  in	
  
   our	
  professional	
  practice	
  as

  HAVE	
  ACADEMIC	
  FREEDOM

  Letter	
  
           	
  

Dear	
  Colleagues,	
  

Welcome	
   to	
   the	
   new	
   semester.	
   I	
   hope	
   your	
   summer	
   was	
   restful	
   and	
   I	
  
anticipate	
  a	
  very	
  lively	
  fall	
  semester	
  at	
  Adelphi	
  University.	
  I	
  have	
  enclosed	
  a	
  
list	
  of	
  faculty	
  and	
  student	
  expectations,	
  along	
  with	
  a	
  model	
  for	
  your	
  course	
  
outline,	
  calendar,	
  and	
  guidelines	
  for	
  class	
  management.	
  

It	
  is	
  important	
  that	
  you	
  review	
  the	
  class	
  management	
  guidelines	
  carefully	
  
and	
  if	
  you	
  have	
  any	
  questions,	
  please	
  feel	
  free	
  to	
  contact	
  me.	
  	
  

It	
  also	
  is	
  important	
  that	
  you	
  use	
  your	
  faculty	
  email,	
  because	
  from	
  time	
  
to	
  time	
  I	
  will	
  be	
  sending	
  notices,	
  some	
  of	
  them	
  important	
  to	
  get	
  the	
  word	
  
out	
  to	
  your	
  students.	
  

If	
  you	
  have	
  any	
  questions	
  about	
  policies,	
  your	
  course	
  and/or	
  procedures,	
  
please	
  feel	
  free	
  to	
  contact	
  me.	
  

Sincerely,	
  
Ronald

  problems	
  (attendance,	
  late	
  papers,	
  poor	
  exams,	
  etc)

              turn	
  in	
  the	
  report	
  even	
  if	
  there	
  are	
  no	
  problems	
  -­‐	
  this	
  listing	
  is	
  on	
  the

  (only	
  undergraduates)

                                                                                                                                                25	
  
                                                                                                                                         	
  
	
  
                   student.	
  It	
  is	
  important	
  that	
  students	
  doing	
  poorly	
  be	
  informed	
  as	
  early	
  as	
  
                   possible	
  -­‐	
  they	
  may	
  have	
  problems	
  or	
  need	
  time	
  to	
  set	
  their	
  priorities.	
  
11) 	
  Grades	
  -­‐	
  at	
  the	
  end	
  oi	
  the	
  semester	
  you	
  are	
  to	
  turn	
  in	
  grades	
  on	
  the	
  
   CLASS	
  system	
  within	
  48hours	
  of	
  the	
  last	
  class.	
  This	
  is	
  important	
  because	
  
   late	
  grades	
  may	
  jeopardize	
  students	
  receiving	
  teacher	
  certification,	
  
   graduation,	
  etc..	
  
12) Yellow	
  Sheets	
  -­‐	
  I	
  will	
  be	
  asking	
  for	
  you	
  to	
  turn	
  in	
  yellow	
  sheets	
  -­‐	
  on	
  the	
  
   form	
  you	
  are	
  to	
  list	
  how	
  you	
  determined	
  the	
  grades	
  of	
  the	
  students.	
  This	
  is	
  
   important	
  because	
  students	
  who	
  do	
  poorly	
  may	
  come	
  into	
  the	
  office	
  to	
  
   question	
  the	
  grade	
  and	
  can	
  not	
  reach	
  you.	
  The	
  yellow	
  sheets	
  make	
  it	
  easy	
  
   to	
  communicate	
  how	
  the	
  grades	
  were	
  determined.	
  
13) Class	
  evaluations	
  -­‐	
  remind	
  students	
  to	
  go	
  through	
  the	
  email	
  and	
  evaluate	
  
   the	
  class.	
  In	
  addition,	
  we	
  have	
  separate	
  departmental	
  class	
  evaluations	
  -­‐	
  it	
  
   is	
  expected	
  that	
  all	
  classes	
  are	
  evaluated	
  by	
  the	
  university	
  (email)	
  and	
  
   departmental	
  class	
  evaluations.	
  The	
  departmental	
  evaluations	
  you	
  are	
  to	
  
   allow	
  time	
  for	
  students	
  to	
  fill	
  out,	
  have	
  a	
  student	
  collect	
  them	
  and	
  return	
  
   them	
  to	
  the	
  department	
  office.

Feedback	
  from	
  students	
  is	
  a	
  vital	
  component	
  of

  2001,	
  student	
  feedback	
  regarding	
  faculty	
  has	
  been	
  solicited	
  each	
  
semester	
  in

  form	
  of	
  anonymous	
  course	
  evaluations	
  which	
  are	
  distributed	
  at	
  the	
  
conclusion	
  of	
  each	
  course.	
  

Pursuant	
  to	
  the	
  current	
  Collective	
  Bargaining	
  Agreement	
  (CBA),	
  effective

  observer	
  will	
  take	
  place	
  in	
  consultation	
  with	
  your	
  Program	
  
Director	
  and/or	
  Department.	
  

            Prior	
  to	
  the	
  observation,	
  the	
  observer	
  and	
  the	
  faculty	
  member	
  will	
  meet	
  and	
  discuss	
  
 the	
  class	
  which	
  will	
  be	
  observed.	
  The	
  instructor	
  should	
  take	
  this	
  opportunity	
  to	
  discuss	
  the	
  
 context	
  of	
  the	
  class	
  session	
  as	
  it	
  occurs	
  in	
  the	
  syllabus,	
  the

 instructional	
  technologies	
  in	
  the	
  session,	
  and	
  the	
  expected	
  participation	
  of	
  the	
  students.	
  

 Following	
  the	
  observation,	
  the	
  observer	
  completes	
  the	
  observation	
  form	
  (see

  focus	
  of	
  the	
  course	
  material.	
  

 (For	
  example,	
  does

  clarity?	
  How	
  does	
  the	
  instructor	
  indicate	
  
 transition	
  from	
  one	
  theme	
  to	
  another?	
  How	
  does	
  the	
  instructor	
  relate	
  the	
  topic	
  of	
  the	
  day	
  
 to	
  the	
  course	
  as	
  a	
  whole?	
  Does	
  the	
  instructor	
  review	
  or	
  summarize	
  main	
  points,	
  go	
  over	
  
 new	
  terminology	
  carefully,
