Emailing the reader(s) Remember, course readers are not graduate student instructors (GSIs) and they are paid for their limited time and limited teaching obligations quite differently. Please address your questions about the substance of the course and its procedures directly to me. Respect readers’ limited responsibilities to a course and its students. The most common topic you will need to email your assigned reader about is your attendance at the office hour scheduled to discuss the grade whenever a major paper assignment is returned. Emails to readers on any other topic are not appropriate. If they require an answer, they will be forwarded to me to answer.THE HONOR CODEPlagiarism and academic dishonesty.
The campus administration has asked that all instructors refer students to the campus-wide statement of principle and policy about academic integrity and honesty, and I am happy to do so in this class. This campus-wide commitment to an honor code adopted was adopted by the ASUC Senate and the administration.Visit the website information on the Honor Code movement.You should be aware that we will be especially vigilant in responding to academic dishonesty and plagiarism in this class.MOST IMPORTANT DETAILS: You must submit work written by you, in your own words, following a plan of your own design, unless explicitly told otherwise by your teacher (in a collaborative project cleared for credit). You must properly cite sources of all work that is not your own. Consult me for advice in case of uncertainty. You should be aware that penalties for plagiarism are outlined by the university and can include expulsion. Students in my classes have been failed for the entire course for breaching rules of academic honesty. When in doubt about proper use and citations of other’s writings in your work, ask for guidance.A mutual agreementIn Sociology 150, I will be present during lectures with an agenda for discussion and reflection based on curricular readings and supplemental sources.
