Students who have arranged through their college to take this course under the Pass/NonPass grading option must achieve a minimum of 60% to receive a passing (P) grade. 2. Reading Assignments: It is necessary that class readings be completed on time given that the format is part lecture and part discussion. Exam questions will come from the text, lectures, speakers, and assignments. 3. Quizzes, exams, etc. will only be given on the scheduled dates unless the student has an excused absence. Quiz, exam, etc. questions will be taken from the text, lectures, speakers, and assignments 4. Absence from class: There are four situations, which constitute an excused absence from the class meeting time. They are: 1) Students who participate in a documented University sanctioned event 2) Students who have a documented death in the family 3) Students who are observing a religious holiday 4) Students who are too ill or injured to participate in class In accordance with Faculty Rule 3335-7-15, students who will be participating in University sanctioned events must provide the instructor with a copy of the scheduled events and those classes which will be missed. This documentation must be on University letterhead, signed by the coach/supervisor, and given to the instructor within the first two weeks of the quarter. Students who will be observing a religious holiday must provide date/event written notification to the instructor within the first two weeks of the quarter. Students who are too ill or injured to participate in class must provide written documentation from a physician stating that the student cannot participate in class. Any excused absences must be made up within two weeks of the absence and the student must submit an official SFHP Course Make Up Form. 10.24.07 4 Failure to complete an SFHP Course Make Up Form and the necessary activity within two weeks will result in that absence becoming an unexcused absence. The make up form is available from the instructor. There will be no make up of unexcused absences. Students with extenuating circumstances that are in conflict with these set policies are encouraged to contact the instructor during office hours or by appointment. 5. Attendance Policy: Attendance will be monitored at every class meeting. It is the students responsibility to sign attendance sheet for each class meeting. 6. Academic Misconduct: Students are expected to do their own original work within the confines of the course objectives and evaluation procedures. Any deviation from these expectations is considered academic misconduct and Faculty Rule 3335-31-02 will be enforced. The Ohio State Universitys Code of Student Conduct (Section 3335-23-04) defines academic misconduct as: Any activity that tends to compromise academic the integrity of the University, or subvert the educational process. Examples of academic misconduct include (but are not limited to) plagiarism, collusion (unauthorized collaboration), copying the work of another student, and possession of unauthorized materials during an examination. Ignorance of the Universitys Code of Student Conduct is never considered an excuse for academic misconduct, so it is strongly recommended that students review the Code of Student Conduct and, specifically, the sections dealing with academic misconduct 7. Assignments: All assignments are to be typed. No hand-written work will be accepted. Late assignments will not be accepted except when the student has an excused absence. (see item #5 above). Assignments should be turned into the dropbox by the start of class on the day the assignment is due. The student should double-check to make sure the dropbox has accepted their assignment. If a student must be absent from class, it is the students responsibility to obtain any class material/assignments missed. 8. Class Participation: For this to be a rewarding academic experience, everyone must contribute to class discussion. This requires that EVERYONE come to class prepared (reading and written assignments completed), attend class regularly/punctually, and actively participate in all assignments. The success of this class depends on your willingness to participate! 9. Respect: In order to maintain a positive learning environment, the following ground rules will be followed: a. Personal perspectives will be valued. Degrading or discriminatory remarks or behaviors are not acceptable. b. Discussions will reflect an exchange of information, experiences, ideas, opinions, etc. Debates will be appropriate when specified. c. If group projects are assigned, it is the responsibility of group members to 10.24.07 5 delegate work. All members of a group must present on the project and all will receive the same grade. d.
