Classroom participation (often as teams), then, becomes a key task for you to engage in. Sections I-II are intended to give you a scholarly and practical framework for the consideration of case studies and classic issues. Discussions of cases will take place in Sections I and II as well as Section III. In addition to required readings will be distributed throughout the course, the following texts are required for this class: Tong, R. (2007 ).

BBH 301: Spring 2009 Syllabus Grading Criteria Quizzes: Three (3) scheduled quizzes will assess your knowledge, comprehension, and integration of lectures, guest lectures, classroom discussions, films, and assigned reading materials. They will consist of multiple choice, short answer, and fill-in-the-blank questions. Assignments: The homework assignments are designed to help you learn and think about material presented to you through lectures and course readings. Some of the questions you will be expected to answer will require application of materials learned in class. This means that you may need to read additional materials and that you can expect to spend time outside of class answering the questions. In class assignments will ask you to apply the principles discussed in class to case studies and issues related to making ethical decisions. Because part of the in class assignment will be to participate in class discussions related to these issues, by necessity these assignments cannot be made up. In cases of extreme extenuating circumstances, alternative arrangements may be made with Dr. Stine prior to missing class. No late homework assignments will be accepted . Breakdown of Final Points:
