(1) Readings: Each class you will be assigned readings from the text and other readings posted on Blackboard. Please read all assigned material prior to the start of class so each of you can be adequately involved in class discussions and group projects. Class activities will be based on the assumption that you have read all of the assigned material. Class will build on and expand upon the readings. A schedule of assigned readings appears later in this syllabus. (2) In-class discussions and group activities: In general, class material will be related to but different from the material presented in the text, although the topics covered each day will overlap. A schedule of topics to be covered appears later in this syllabus. In order to gain the maximum benefit from lectures, discussions, and class activities, students should complete the assigned readings before the class section for which they are assigned. Participation in class sessions is essential to your success in this course for at least two reasons. First, much of the information presented in class is not in the assigned readings, and approximately 1/3 of each exam will be based on in-class material. Second, a great portion of your grade is based on your performance on in-class assignments. You must be present to take part in and receive a grade for these assignments. (3) Projects and papers: In this class we will have various projects, homework assignments, and papers that will build upon the material we get from the readings and discussions. This material will allow you to apply it to your education. You will be given more information regarding projects and papers throughout this syllabus and throughout the semester. Course G rading: All written assignments need to be typed, double-spaced, printed on paper, STAPLED, and in APA format and turned in at the beginning of the class period on the assigned due date. I will not accept email attachments . All written assignments should be free of spelling and grammatical errors. Please make sure you review them before submitting your assignments. Your course grade will be calculated based on the following: 1). Exams (3 @ 50 points each): Dates of exams – 3/3, 4/9, 5/21 2). In-class activities and homework assignments (50 points): Over the course of the semester you will take part in several individual and/or small group activities in class or have small homework assignments. All of the activities will include a written component that will be graded based on a certain amount of points. For instance, a short assignment may be worth only 2 or 3 points and a longer assignment might be worth 6, 7, or 8 points.

    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.
