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

 

 

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”. 

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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 4223 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.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

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.  The “limited right” shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality and authenticity, and for educational purposes. Specifically, faculty may submit student papers and assignments to an external agency to verify originality and authenticity, and to detect for plagiarism.

 

 

Grading Scale:

 

A:  90-100

B:  80-89

C:  75-79

D:  70-74

F:  <69

 

A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses.  Failure to attain a minimum grade of C will prevent the student from progressing in the program. 

 

Evaluation:

 

Attendance/Participation/Syllabus Confirm   15%

Case Studies                                           20%

Health Care Poster Presentation                  25%

Quizzes                                                  40%

 

 

CLASS ATTENDANCE PARTICIPATION: 

Class attendance (45%) will be a portion of your grade for this class.  I do understand that certain circumstances do come up that will result in your inability to be at class.  However, I do expect you to notify me when you will not be in class.  If I begin to recognize a problem with your attendance, I will ask to meet with you to discuss the problem.  This class will meet a total of 10 times.  You will receive a 1 point deduction from your Class attendance grade (which is a total of 10 points) for each class that you miss unless the absence has been discussed and approved by me.

 

Class participation (45%) is also an integral part of this course.  In order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts during the process of this course. Participation means providing substantive comments, questions and contributions that advance the learning process for you and/or other learners in the course. Participation may include responding to questions and issues posed by other learners. Non-substantive comments, irrelevant comments and comments of the nature of “I agree” or “I disagree” (unless the latter two are elaborated upon to make them substantive) do not count towards meeting the participation requirement. Again, this class will meet a total of 10 times. You will receive 1 point deduction from your Class Participation grade (which is a total of 10 points) for each class that you do not actively participate in.

 

The reason for this is based on the style of teaching that we will be conducting within this course. It requires your attendance and participation.

 

I have also included a Syllabus Confirmation, which states that you are aware and understand the expectations of this course. This confirmation will be a portion of your grade and will consist of 10% of your attendance/participation grade.

 

CASE STUDIES:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week. You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox in D2L by 7:59am on the day it is due. You will also need to bring a copy of your word document to class on the day it is due as we will be discussing that specific case study. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the student’s efforts and the quality of their writing. 2 points will be awarded for each correct answer. 1 point will be awarded for each attempted answer with good effort. 0 points will be given for questions not answered. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

QUIZZES:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes, however the quizzes are timed and may only be taken once.  90 minutes for each 20 question quiz. Quizzes/Exams account for 40% of your grade, each quiz/exam being worth 10%.

 

HEALTH FAIR PROJECT PRESENTATION:

As part of your final project, you will create a project that summarizes your topic.  This project will be presented as part of the Midwestern State University Health Fair which will be held on Friday March 7th, 2014 from 9-1.  During class on March 5th each group will present their project to the class for peer evaluation.

Submission Format PolicyNote: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.

Plagiarism Policy 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.

Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

Students with Disabilities The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, 397-4140.

Safe Zones Statement The professor considers this classroom to be a place where you will be treated with respect as a human being - regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political beliefs, age, or ability. Additionally, diversity of thought is appreciated and encouraged, provided you can agree to disagree. It is the professor's expectation that ALL students consider the classroom a safe environment.

Contacting your Instructor All instructors in the Department have voicemail in their offices and MWSU e-mail addresses. Make sure you add your instructor's phone number and e-mail address to both email and cell phone lists of contacts.

Writing Proficiency Requirement All students seeking a Bachelor's degree from Midwestern State University must satisfy a writing proficiency requirement once they've 1) passed English 1113 and English 1123 and 2) earned 60 hours. You may meet this requirement by passing either the Writing Proficiency Exam or English 2113. Please keep in mind that, once you've earned over 90 hours, you lose the opportunity to take the $25 exam and have no option but to enroll in the three-credit hour course. If you have any questions about the exam, visit the Writing Proficiency Office website at http://academics.mwsu.edu/wpr, or call 397-4131.
