 Course requirements: This course, like most introductory history courses, covers a vast amount




                                                                     E
 of information. You are responsible for knowing the information covered in textbook readings,
 class lectures, discussions, handouts, slide lectures, videos, etc.      [GEO 8]

 Tests: There are four UNIT TESTS, which cover specific periods of art history and primarily in-
 volve objective questions. Reviews and/or study guides will be provided by the instructor to help



                                 PL
 students prepare for these tests.
    The final exam will consist primarily of questions drawn from the fourth unit of the course
 (see schedule), questions drawn from class presentations, and an in-class essay. In addition, many
 questions themselves will utilize vocabulary and concepts from the previous units of the class as
 they apply the artworks in unit four.                                      [GEO 2]*, [CO 1, 3]**

 Writing Assignments: Students will be responsible for researching an artist or minor move-
 ment in art and writing two brief research papers. The papers will use MLA or APA documen-
 tation format. The first assignment (2 pages long) will focus on the important artworks, typical
 subjects, and media used by the artist (or topic). Detailed directions will follow. The second
 paper will be 4 pages in length, and will focus on biographical info about the artist selected (or
 an overview if the topic is not an artist). You must use at least one electronically-retrieved
   M
 source for your research assignment. The Media Center databases offer electronic access to
 encyclopedias, dictionaries, journals, and other source material. [GEO 1, 2, 3. 5, 7]* [CO 1, 2, 3, 4]**

 Oral Presentations: (5-7 min.), based on each student’s research paper topic [GEO 1, 8]*                     [CO 2,3,4]**

 Quizzes / Classwork / Homework Assignments: The instructor reserves the right to give ‘pop’
 quizzes, usually given at the beginning of class. Warning: There will be no chance to make up a
SA

 missed quiz. From time to time there will be additional classwork or homework assignments. In
 most cases, they will be graded on percentage or letter grade scale, but some assignments may be
 graded on a “satisfactory” / “unsatisfactory” basis ( these assignments will be figured into a
 student’s class participation grade) [GEO 1,2, 5,6, 8]* [CO 1,2]**

 Field Trip: One field trip is built into this course. The trip date and destination will be deter-
 mined shortly, most likely on a Saturday of Sunday. Attendance for the field trip is required;
 missing the trip will affect a student’s class participation grade by 20 percent. The trip is a bus
 trip to a major museum off Delmarva. [GEO 8]* [CO 11-4]**

 Grades: Grading will be done on a point system as follows:
 Four unit tests @ 125 points each                               1,000 total
          (the final exam is the Unit 4 test)    500              Scale : 900-1,000 = A;

          Research Paper #2                      150                         600-699 = D,
 Quizzes, homework, classwork                    100                      599-below = F

                          TOTAL POINTS:         1,000
 Class participation / attendance: Regular attendance is especially important. You are expected
 to attend every class. If you are absent, you are responsible for the information covered in your
 absence. Get to know one or two classmates, and call them to find out what was covered and
 what assignments were given. It is not the instructor’s responsibility to supply you with a full set
 of lecture notes for a class you missed.                  [GEO 8]*

 If you are unable to attend class, tell your instructor via e-mail or voice-mail. If you miss a test,
 you must notify me of your intention to make up the test within 24 hrs. of the test day so a test
 can be placed in the testing center. Failure to do so may result in a reduced test grade, or the
 inability to make up the test. You must make it up (within 5 days ) or you will receive a zero for
 the test. Make up tests are given in the Testing Center, AAB 225.phone: 410/ 334-2843 for the
 testing center hours. No make-up quizzes will be given. [GEO 8]*
     All written assignments are due in class on the due date. Oral presentations are to be
 presented on the date scheduled. The instructor reserves the right to reduce the grade for any
 assignments turned in late.
        In the event of a flu epidemic or other emergency that results in the suspension of




                                                           E
 classes, faculty will be communicating with students about their courses and course require-
 ments, such as assignments, quiz and exam dates, and class and grading policies, via faculty
 websites or Blackboard. Students will be responsible for completing all these assignments in
 accordance with class policies. Information about the resumption of classes will be com-
 municated via the College's website and email system.



                             PL
 Cell phones/ earphones (Ipods, etc.) and laptops, Nooks and Kindles, and other electronic
 devices must be turned off when class starts, and put away in a pocket, book bag, or purse
 (And for the record, clapping a cell phone between your thighs is not putting it away). Likewise,
 earphones for I-pods, etc. must be put away, out of sight. Also, you are not to place purses or
 bookbags on the table top to wall off my view so you might sneak a text message. The use of a
 laptop computer during a lecture is not allowed. (Sorry, it’s distracting, and too many past
 students blew it by e-mailing, etc. during class.) Texting in class it is an impolite behavior.
 Therefore, if you are sitting in a way that suggests you are texting--both hands in lap, looking
 down at your lap, etc.-- your instructor will assume you are texting. You should be either using
 your hands to take notes and your eyes should be paying attention to the lecture at hand. If
   M
 you’re instructor notices you secretly texting, he will note this in his gradebook just as secretly;
 each offense takes 10 points off your class participation grade.       [GEO 7, 8]*


 Academic Honesty [geo 8]* : Academic honesty is expected of all students. Cheating and
 plagiarism are violations of academic honesty. Any student who has violated the academic
 honesty policy will be denied credit for the assignment, and then the matter will be turned over
 to the Student-Faculty Disciplinary Committee. Documented evidence of the offense will be
SA

 kept in the Arts and Humanities Department office.

 Plagiarism: In both oral and written communication, the following guidelines for avoiding
 plagiarism must be followed:
 1. Any words quoted directly from a source must be in quotation marks (for a written com-
 munication) and cited.
 2. Any paraphrasing or rephrasing of the words and\or ideas of a source must be cited.
 3. Any ideas or examples derived from a source that are not in the public domain or of general
 knowledge must be cited.
 4. All papers and presentations must be the student's own work.

 Students who are confused about what constitutes plagiarism should meet with their instructor.
 Cheating: Cheating is the act of obtaining information or data improperly by dishonest or deceitful means.
 Examples of cheating are copying from another student’s test, obtaining information illegally on tests, using
 unauthorized notes during exams or quizzes, or other deceitful practices.
 A Final Note: If at any time you encounter difficulty with this course, do not hesitate to talk to me, and I will do my best to
 help you. Remember—the wisest student is the one who has the intelligence to say “ I don’t understand”. Good Luck! I look
 forward to working with you this semester. --- Mr. Boyer
