Big Brother is Watching You
1. Be Prompt
– Students who attempt to cheat or plagiarize will receive no credit for
the assignment. A second
offense will likely result in a failing grade for the course.
To ensure that assignments are original, students should be prepared
to produce a detailed list of sources upon request.
– All assignments are due at the beginning of the class session.
Any work that is not completed at this time is considered late.
Late homework assignments will receive no more than half credit.
Assignments worth 50 points or more will be lowered one full grade for each
school day past the due date. Absent students must submit all
previous homework immediately upon return to class. Any additional class- or homework missed due to absence must
also be completed and submitted at that time.
and Promptness – Regular
attendance is crucial to student success in this course.
Students are expected to arrive before the bell and remain in the
classroom until excused by the teacher at the end of the class session.
Frequent tardiness will result in detentions, Saturday school
sessions, and lowered academic grades (quizzes that are missed due to
tardiness may not be made up for credit).
Students who miss class due to excused absences are responsible for
obtaining and completing missed assignments by the due date. I am usually
available via email, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 7:00am and
4:00pm. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org.
– It is assumed that students take advantage of the passing periods to use
the restrooms. In the event of
an emergency, students may use the hall pass to leave the room.
Please limit breaks to a maximum of five minutes if possible.
Only one person may use the hall pass at a time.
– Class sessions are frequently discussion-oriented.
Students are encouraged to speak freely without fear of unwarranted
criticism or inappropriate responses.
a speaker has the floor, please show your respect by listening quietly
without interrupting, holding side-discussions, or engaging in off-topic
activities (including sleeping, or the appearance of sleeping).
