homework, and complete all formal writing assignments. Successful completion of theformal assignments includes turning in all required drafts and attending workshops andconferences. I reserve the right to lower your grade if all assignments are not turned in and you are not prepared each day.Electronic Note: To do our part to help the environment and provide you easy access tocourse materials, syllabi and course assignment sheets will be available on our course website at http://www.nicoleannwilliams.com I will not distribute paper copies in class.
Absence is not acceptable in the work place. Businesses only run smoothly if everyoneparticipates as much as possible; therefore, attendance is mandatory. Since this is an abbreviated coursesession, meeting for only five weeks, keeping up with the material requires your attendance each day. Youare allowed one sick day (absence)
free and clear. I don’t need
to know where you were or what you weredoing. If you are absence twice I reserve the right to lower your grade a 1/3 of a letter grade. If you missmore than two classes I reserve the right to fail you for the course.
Being late for work is unacceptable. Your boss and team are counting on you. Please come toclass on time.
This job depends heavily on your readiness and willingness to contribute to discussionsand activities daily. I expect each of you to work with me and each other to make this a real workingcommunity.
Therefore, you must come to work each day fully prepared having done allassigned readings and work ready to participate.
Additionally, activities are designed to build off of outside work; therefore, I will know if you are unprepared. I reserve the right to lower your grade as Isee appropriate for lack of preparation and participation.
In addition keep in mind:
Being absent is not an excuse for turning in late work.
All assignments areexpected to be turned in at the beginning of the work shift (class day) they are due. If youare not going to be in class e-mail your work to me by the beginning of class time.
Lateassignments will not be accepted.
Daily activities cannot be made up so it would be wise to come to work prepared each day.
You will have computers in front of you which may pose several distractions. Checkinge-mail and surfing the web at work is both rude and inappropriate. This behavior willnot be tolerated and will affect your grade.
Please remember to turn off and put away all cell phones, ipods, mp3 players, and othercommunication devices that pose a distraction to our class. Failure to follow the policy will affect your grade. I do not want to see you using any of these devices at work.
Class time is not a time for private discussions amongst each other. Such behavior isrude and disruptive to your colleagues. Please save such conversations for after work.
Respect for others in the workplace is non-negotiable. Everyone can have a difference of opinion, discuss, and debate, but respect must be given to your colleagues at all times.
Presentation of someone else’s work as your own is dishonest and unacceptable.
If I findout that you have plagiarized you will receive a zero for the assignment and, possibly, failthe course.
Be assured that I will find out if you have plagiarized, therefore it would be wise for you todo your own work and cite any and all material you take from other sources. Plain and simple-
if it isn’t
your own words or idea than tell me where you found it. If you are ever unsure of whether or not you arecommitting academic dishonesty please come speak to me, and I will be happy to assist. I take academic
