The Internet is overwhelmed with websites devoted to the United States foreign policy and the Middle East. Many of these are excellent for research; many are very misleading and inaccurate. Websites used for your papers must be discussed with the instructor. Please feel free to share any discoveries that you make on the web with the class. LAPTOP-FREE FRIDAYS On most Fridays during the semester students will not be allowed to use their laptops and the focus will be on a vigorous class discussion of one of the many controversial topics connected to the course. Participation in the discussion is essential to the success of the class. PLAGIARISM Plagiarism occurs when students turn in work that is not their own. You have an obligation to be honest in informing the instructor that you are using another person’s ideas, arguments, information, data or words and provide citations for your source of information. You have this obligation whether you are quoting text, citing statistics or summarizing ideas from your source. Plagiarism occurs when written work 1) fails to cite quotations and borrowed ideas from outside sources, including the World Wide Web and other student work, 2) fails to enclose borrowed language in quotation marks, and 3) fails to put summaries and paraphrases in the writer’s own words. The definition of plagiarism was derived from Diana Hacker’s A Writer’s Reference , Fourth Edition. Boston: Bedford/St. Martin’s, 1999. HONOR CODE For all examinations, papers, and other assignments, students are expected to observe the Honor Code. If you have any questions or uncertainty about the application of the Honor Code, please ask the instructor. 5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
