Facilitator Availability

I am available from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Central Time on most days, but I attempt to reserve
Sunday for my family. During the week, I am online most of the time during that 9 a.m.-9
p.m. time frame.

On Saturdays, I tend to be online in the morning only. If these times are not convenient
for you, please let me know. I will be happy to accommodate your schedule, if possible.
I provide you with these times to make it easier to communicate with me, and not to limit
our contact.

I want you to know that, should you need to contact me outside these time frames, you
should not hesitate to do so.

For emergencies, when you are not able to gain access to messages on the Online
Learning System (OLS), please send a message to my personal email address. In the
event a third party needs to contact me, please direct them to my contact information
listed under "facilitator information." No third party should use your login credentials to
gain access to the classroom.

Where to Go to Class

Main: This is the main forum for the class and is where discussion is conducted. It has
read-and-write access for everyone.

Chat-Room: This is a read-and-write access forum. It is designed as a place to discuss
issues not related to the course content. This is the forum to which we will send our
bios.

Course-Materials: This is a read-only forum, which means you can read messages
here but cannot send any. This is where I will post the course syllabus and materials.
Individual Forum: You will see one forum with your name on it. This is a private forum,
shared only by you and me, the facilitator. Your classmates will not have access to this
forum. This is where you will post your individual assignments, and where I will post
your feedback. You can also ask questions here. However, if you have general
questions about instructions of assignments, please post those in the Main forum, since
other students may benefit by that exchange as well.

Policies

the course on eCampus. Faculty and students/learners will be held responsible for

are subject to change so please be sure to read them at the beginning of each class as
it may have changed since your last class. Policies may be slightly different depending
on the modality in which you attend class. If you have recently changed modalities it is
important you read the policies governing your current class modality.

Late Assignments

Late assignments receive a 10% deduction for each day they are late if assignments
are not posted by 11:59 p.m. M.S.T. on the day they are due. Assignments more than 4
days late will not be accepted. Technological issues are not considered valid grounds
for late assignment submission. In the event of a University of Phoenix server outage,
students should submit assignments through email to the instructor and post to the
individual forum when systems are restored. Unless an Incomplete grade has been
granted, learner assignments submitted after the last day of class will not be accepted.

.We do not use Learning Teams in this course

It is expected that you will actively participate with your learning team and contribute to
the team discussions by a) contributing original work that is accepted and used by the
team with proof of originality b) participating in the project from assignment organizing
through meaningful final review of the team project for submission, and c) ensuring to
your team that your contributions are your original work and properly quoted, cited, and
referenced.

  3. Discussion Questions

         How can stereotyping affect group relations? Provide an example of a
         stereotype you find in your everyday life. Comment on the experiences of
         your classmates. Are the experiences the same or different from yours, and
         how?

        Review the following scenario. Deana recently decided to start attending
         college, but her family is criticizing her decision. They argue that she should
         focus on working so she can start earning money. When she begins school,
         they fear she will not have as much time to spend with family. Her family
         worries that college will change Deana and that she will become too
         mainstream. As the first person in her family to pursue higher education,
         Deana thinks her family members have a prejudicial attitude towards higher
         education and that they should accept her decision.

         If you were Deana, how would you address your family’s criticisms of and
         attitudes about higher education? How would you dispel their fears and try to
         convince family members that going to college is a worthwhile endeavor?
