The final interview transcript and analytical reflection is due Thursday, April 26, before class commences. You must upload your project to Turnitin before class begins and bring a hard copy to class. No late interview projects will be accepted. More details are provided at the end of the syllabus. **An alternative assignment is available for students who wish to volunteer with JEP. An announcement will be made in class. Students in the past find this service-learning experience to be intellectually stimulating and personally rewarding. Note:Please be aware that any papers, assignments or exams handed in after the due date will not be accepted or graded. Appealing Your GradeIf you feel that an evaluation of an assignment or exam does not fairly reflect its quality and you wish for the professor to reconsider it, you will need to submit: 1) your graded assignment and 2)a typed memo explaining point by point why you believe the grade you received does not accurately reflect the quality of your work given the requirements of the assignment. You must submit these items to the Professor’s mailbox (not your TA) within one weekof the date the graded assignment was handed back to you. Please note that if you ask the professor to reevaluate your work, your new grade may increase, stay the same or be lower than the original grade. Keep all returned work in the event that you have a grade dispute. If you cannot provide a copy of the returned and graded work, the grade in the grade book stands.Extra Credit – There will be extra credit opportunities announced over the course of the semester. These opportunities typically include attending campus events related to immigration issues. You must sign in at the event and write a 1 page summary of the event and how it relates to the class. Your write-up is due in your TA’s mailbox by one week after the event. You may earn two extra credit points. Required Texts – Vallejo, Jody Agius. 2012.
