Student Responsibilities 1. Learning is not a spectator sport and you cannot learn to succeed if you are not here. You are expected to arrive on time, attend every class, remain for the duration of the course, and come prepared in order to demonstrate your active participation. Unexcused absence and consistent tardiness will result in grade reduction. 2. All assignments and exams/quizzes must be completed when scheduled. There are no make-up assignments or tests in this course without prior permission and including appropriate documentation of illness or family emergency. If allowed, you must make up the missed work no later than one week following; after this, no make-up will be allowed. 4. All students are expected to check their Knight’s Email regularly (at least once a day) for any updates and further instructions. 5. All students are expected and required to observe proper email etiquette when emailing the professor. Failure to adhere to this policy may result in no response from the professor. 6. All students will remain respectful of the professor and of each other at all times. 7. All students will refrain from utilizing electronics in the classroom, unless instructed to do so or in case of an emergency. 8. All students will dress in an appropriate manner and within the academic decorum exemplifying the standards of what it means to represent UCF and a Knight. Course Requirements Attendance and Participation: 115 Points Attendance is required for this course. There are no excused or unexcused absences unless prior arrangements have been made and approved by the Instructor. There are 23 class meetings and each class meeting counts as 5 points for a total of 115 points. Class participation in discussions and activities is expected as it is particularly important in your academic success. You may also have points deducted if, in my opinion, you are not participating fully when present, not prepared through readings, or other behaviors that disrupt the teaching/learning process. Research Projects: 300 Points Over the course of the semester you will complete two research projects. These projects are designed to help engage you in informational literacy and research skills. More information on these specific projects are listed at the end of your syllabus. Quizzes, Activities and Assignments: 200 Points There will be several brief quizzes, assignments, and other required small activities throughout the semester. These may be administered in class or on-line through our campus learning management system. In order to receive points for inventories you will take at home, you must print out your results and turn them in during class in order to receive credit. 3 © Stategies for Success Program/First Year Experience: University of Central Florida (2016)

    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.
