Grading

Attendance (70%) and two written assignments (30%). You may miss one class period without penalty. Two absences will result in a half letter grade reduction in your grade (i.e. B+ reduced to B). Each additional absence carries a one letter grade penalty (i.e. B+ reduced to C+). Failure to turn in the written assignments results in an automatic E.

To record attendance, there will be a simple "Exam" in which you mark your attendance for each period in Learning Suite. Students are expected to record their attendance within one week of the class period, after which time the Exam will disappear.

Opportunity to Make up an Absence: October 25 If you would like to make up a missed lecture or simply want the experience (highly recommended), the Department is sponsoring a lunch during which you can sit at a table and talk to a successful alumnus about education and careers. See ACET Luncheon for more details. YOU MUST SIGN UP with the secretaries in 459 CB to register your RSVP for this event. There will be an "Exam" to record attendance for this event, but this record will be considered Extra Credit when considering the attendance portion of your grade.

Honor Code

In keeping with the principles of the BYU Honor Code, students are expected to be honest in all of their academic work. Academic honesty means, most fundamentally, that any work you present as your own must in fact be your own work and not that of another. Violations of this principle may result in a failing grade in the course and additional disciplinary action by the university. Students are also expected to adhere to the Dress and Grooming Standards. Adherence demonstrates respect for yourself and others and ensures an effective learning and working environment. It is the university's expectation, and my own expectation in class, that each student will abide by all Honor Code standards. Please call the Honor Code Office at 422-2847 if you have questions about those standards.

Preventing Sexual Harassment

Sexual discrimination or harassment (including student-to-student harassment) is prohibited both by the law and by Brigham Young University policy. If you feel you are being subjected to sexual discrimination or harassment, please bring your concerns to the professor. Alternatively, you may lodge a complaint with the Equal Employment Office (D-240C ASB) or with the Honor Code Office (4440).

Students with Disabilities

If you have a disability that may affect your performance in this course, you should get in touch with the office of Services for Students with Disabilities (1520 WSC). This office can evaluate your disability and assist the professor in arranging for reasonable accommodations.
