Complete and submit all assignments on the due dates for full credit.
Readings and homework assignments are listed on the dates on which they are due.
If you have extraordinary circumstances that impact completion of your assignments, advise the instructor in advance.
Any time that you have questions or concerns, please contact the instructor immediately.
All required work is expected to be on time.
One grade level will be deducted for each class meeting for which it is late (e.g., an “A” assignment that is submitted one day late will be marked down to a “B”).
Unless prior instructor approval is secured, assignments will not be accepted three days after which they are due.
Exceptions will be handled on a case-by-case basis, at the discretion of the instructor.
It is expected that students will proofread and edit assignments prior to submission. Students will ensure their writing is error-free (grammar, spelling), and ideas are logically and concisely presented. Assignment grade will be affected as a result of any oversight.
Grading will also include a component of “professional dispositions and demeanor.” Students will conduct themselves at all times in ways that are generally expected of those who are entering the education profession. This includes, but is not limited to:
On-time arrival and full attendance to all class sessions;
Advance preparation of readings & timely submission of assignments;
Demonstration of respectful, positive interpersonal communication and participation with classmates, instructors, and school personnel in all settings (e.g., whole group, small group, in/outside of class); and
Carefully considered, culturally aware approaches to solution-finding
Select a class “buddy” to ensure you receive handouts and information if you miss all/part of a class. Keep their contact info with you!
