and consequences regarding plagiarism will apply and the student is encouraged to obtain and review the student handbook for guidelines. DO YOUR OWN WORK . To plagiarize is "to steal and pass off as one's own the ideas or words of another" (Webster, 1967, p. 646), or to not acknowledge the author of an idea. If plagiarism is evident, the student will receive a "0" or "F" on 2/21/15
that activity AND may be given a "F" grade for the course AND may be suspended or expelled from the university. See Code of Student Conduct for further explanations. Absences/Make-up Work It will be very difficult to make up the performance criteria if you are absent from class. If you must be absent (e.g. death of close friend, relative, illness) please contact me as soon as possible. All assignments must be submitted AT OR BEFORE THE ASSIGNED DUE DATE. Unexcused assignments submitted after the due date may be returned ungraded or may be assigned a lower evaluation. Prior notification is required for excused assignments. Unless prior approval is granted from the instructor, all due dates for projects, abstracts, etc. are final. Late assignments will be subject to a 10% penalty per day up to the total number of points allotted. Appropriate Language : Students are expected to use appropriate language in class discussions and written work. People with disabilities are just that: people who happen to have physical, sensory, behavioral, or intellectual disabilities. Please avoid phrases like "the handicapped," "EH kids," "severely retarded," or other statements that highlight the disability rather than the individual. Instead, speak and write in a way that puts "people first," for example, "the student with a severe disability," "the program for students with behavior disorders." This small change emphasizes the humanity and individuality of the person and clarifies that disability is only one of many characteristics (and not necessarily the most important!) that people can possess. Professionalism Please assist in making the learning environment as positive and professional as possible. Respect others by being on time to class, not leaving early, listening attentively while others are speaking and turning off your cell phones. Appropriate and professional dress is required for all field work activities. Failing to follow appropriate dress and decorum in school settings may lead to removal from the experience and a grade of 0 for the field activity . From time to time guest speakers may be invited to enhance lectures and give alternate perspectives. Please be prompt, courteous, and respectful at all times. 2/21/15
