complete their fair share of work and not simply “go along for the ride”. I will be giving students in
class an assessment to determine each group member’s contribution to the project. It could lower your
grade if you are not doing the work assigned.
Class preparation is your responsibility. Being absent is no excuse for not knowing. If you are absent, be sure to get the previous day's notes and assignments from another student in the class AND come to class prepared. If an assignment is due upon your return date, then your assignment is also due that same day. Late assignments will have a minimum automatic 50% point deduction for each day late.
Daily attendance and active participation is expected and required of all professionals, therefore your attendance and tardiness may affect your final grade and possibly your recommendation for student teaching and internships. Three absences will result in a one-letter grade drop. Upon the fourth absence (excused or unexcused), the student will receive a failing grade unless the course is dropped by the drop deadline (June 15th, 2011 by 4 p.m.).
“By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a ‘limited right’ in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course.

**Learning is not a spectator sport. Fundamentally, the responsibility to learn is yours and yours alone. For learning to happen in any course, you must take an active role in the process. For our class you are expected to come to class “prepared” and “ready to learn,” which requires you “to read and study” the assigned reading “before” you come to class. Being prepared for class enables you to construct a knowledge base on which subsequent learning rests.**
