Nulla Dies Sine Linea
Rationale and Goals:
Odds are good your life won’t turn out as you envision it now. Thatdoesn’
t mean your life will be sad, tragic, or a failure, but it means that your definition of what you want may change.
It’s possible the job you will work in ten years doesn’t exist yet
(how many people worked in social media a decade ago?), or you could change your mindafter graduating. The point
is that some things you learn in school won’t help you in your
career.Writing is not one of those things.Written communication skills mattered 50 years ago. Your ability to compose a letter was a
sign of your social class, education, and “breeding.”
In the past, it was possible to dictate aletter to someone else if you were powerful or wealthy enough. Everyone writes their ownstuff today. The ability to write is still a top skill desired by every employer in every field.Unless you become very wealthy and powerful overnight or develop a time-machine back to
the 1960’s (and wind up wealthy and powerful there), you will need writing skills.

Hybrid Classes:
This course is a hybrid course. All hybrid courses have both online and in-person components. In order to be successful in the course, you must complete componentsin both areas.Although technology seems magical, our technology is mechanical. We understand thatmachines break. We know that not every machine runs smoothly all the time. Because we allknow this fact, it is logical to start assignments early, ask for help early, and arrange regularaccess to the necessary technology. NAU-Yavapai has enough technology to support all the
assignments required by this class. Since we provide the necessary technology, we don’t
support all off-campus technology. Technological hiccups and issues are not an excuse for notcompleting work.
Because we only meet for ten in-class sessions, attendance is mandatory for allsessions. If you are unable to attend class, you may lose participation points. Missing morethan three sessions will result in your being dropped and/or failing the course. Due dates arenot changed by your absence. You should contact other students for assignments and classinformation.
All assignments must be turned in on the date/time stated on the schedule andin the format requested. The end of this syllabus has a complete calendar. Read thiscarefully because late work is not accepted.
These boxes give you a quantitative idea of how to earn a grade. I
critical to understand
the meaning of a letter. An “A” means excellent work overall, a “B” means above average, a“C” means average, a “D” is poor work, while an “F” is insufficient. In order to earn an A or
B, you will need to do excellent or above average work consistently.
Student Conduct:
This course deals with the ideas of other people. Because we will be
exposed to new and controversial themes, it’s important that we respect the views of other
people. You have every right to disagree and express that disagreement, but you must becivil. Also, arrive on-time, minimize interruptions, and put your phone away.
The “Student Code of Conduct” (available on the NAU website at
and Yavapai College’s website at
http://www2.yc.edu/content/humanresources/employeetoolkit/codeofconductchoice.htm#code)outlines behavioral expectations, and explains the process for responding to allegationsof student misconduct.
 Academic Integrity, Plagiarism and Cheating:
Copying any work that is not your own,without acknowledging the source, is both a moral and legal violation. Please read theguidelines for Academic Integrity
on NAU’s website
College’s website
(http://www2.yc.edu/content/admissions/NewTemplate/AcademicIntegrity.htm). For some excellent and clear examples of plagiarism, seehttp://www2.yc.edu/content/libraryservices/diagnosis-plagiarism.htm, http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets/plagiarism.shtml,andhttp://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/589/01/. Common sources of plagiarism are the work of other students, professors, published authors,speakers and internet sources. Minimum consequence for plagiarism in this course is failure of the assignment, and may well result in failure of the course, depending on the nature of theinfraction. There is the possibility of even more severe sanctions, including expulsion fromNAU-Yavapai. This is a serious issue in the academic community because it involves what is
legally termed as “intellectual property.” NOTE: Failure to read or understand this syllabus,
the Academic Integrity guidelines, or understand the various types of plagiarism and cheatingDOES NOT constitute an excuse for the violating of Academic Integrity.
