· All assignments must be typed for credit (work will not be accepted unless it is typed). Grammar will be graded as part of any assignment.
· 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 25% point deduction for each day late. Any student missing a presentation must teach the lesson outside of class and submit a video of the lesson for grading.
· Handouts and returned projects/quizzes will be brought to class on one day only. Missed handouts can be duplicated from a classmate's handouts or ask a classmate to pick-up any handouts for you. Returned items that a student misses may be picked up at my office.
· Student Honor Creed "As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so."
· Group work: You will work in groups during the semester. It is each person’s responsibility in the group to
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.
