 American Disabilities Act (ADA)

Midwestern State University (MSU) does not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s disability and complies with Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act in its admission, accessibility and employment of individuals in programs and activities.  MSU provide academic accommodations and auxiliary aids to individuals with disabilities, as defined by law, who are otherwise qualified to meet academic and employment requirements. For assistance call (940) 397-4618 or 397-4515.  Please see the instructor outside of class to make any arrangements involving special accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to declare any disabilities. After declaration, preferably at the beginning of each semester, the student needs to contact individual instructors to determine any reasonable accommodations that may be required

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

 

Student Honor Creed 
As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so." 
As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception. Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters. We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student. We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed. Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

 

Honor System:

All components of RESP 3553-201 are designed to represent the efforts of each student INDIVIDUALLY and are NOT to be shared, copied, or plagiarized from other sources.  When students submit their efforts for grading, they are ating they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, s, or examinations; (2) dependence upon the aid of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems, or completing other assignments; or (3) the acquisition of s or other academic materials belonging to the university faculty or staff without permission.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use of, by paraphrase or direct quotation without correct citation in the text and on the reference list, the published or unpublished works of another person. Students may NOT submit papers and assignments that they have previously submitted for this or other courses. The use of materials generated by agencies engaged in "selling" term papers is also plagiarism. Students are encouraged to review the tutorials and suggested websites for more information about plagiarism. 

Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. Whenever a student is unsure of whether a particular situation will be interpreted as academic dishonesty, he/she should ask the instructor for clarification.  If students are guilty of academic dishonesty, a grade of zero (0) will be given for the quiz, assignment, etc.  Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.

 

***Research papers and projects must be original work for each course assignment.  The faculty will not accept a submission that has been or is being submitted for another course.  No Exceptions!

CLASS PARTICIPATION:

Class participation is an integral part of this course.  You are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   Participation means providing substantive comments, questions and contributions that advance the learning process for you and/or other learners in the course.

 

LECTURE EXAMINATIONS:

(5) In-depth exams covering specified material given from your readings and lectures. Examinations may consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions.

 

PEDI ASTHMA ASSIGNMENT:

In an effort to become more involved with our local education towards the pediatric population about asthma and airway associated problems, we are going to work together to create a program to present to the WFISD. This will be an on-going project that we will work together on next year as well. It cannot be developed overnight. For this semester, I want you to research the educational programs and prevention methods for children that are already in existence. You will be required to turn in 2 website links to sites that utilize existing educational programs for children. Give a brief description of the program as well as the where it is utilized and what age ranges it is designated for. I want as much information about the specific program that you can find so that we can eventually incorporate some of their materials or activities into our plan.

 

COMPREHENSIVE FINAL EXAM:

An in-depth comprehensive examination covering the material presented throughout the entire semester. This exam will consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. 

 

 

 

PROJECT:                                                                                        

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of assessment and care of neonatal and pediatric patients.  You will be required to submit a power point presentation on a specific neonatal or pediatric respiratory therapeutic technique, disease, condition, or procedure.  Power point should be around 15 slides. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 10 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style to the manuscript.  Topics will be randomly chosen during the first week.  It is your responsibility to know and remember your topic.  The Project is due March 24th
