Course Assignments Before Departure: Letter to Me: Write a letter to you that predicts, “What will I find when I arrive, what I will learn in 2 weeks, what will I discover about me, and in what ways will what I discover influence my development as an individual and as a counselor.” Give your letter to me, in a sealed envelope with your name on the front on Dec. 8, 2012. While Abroad: Participation: Regular and full participation in all travel, excursions, visits, and activities is a requirement for everyone, except in cases of illness. Participation includes attendance at pre-departure classes and end-of-travel class session, participation and service with sites, helping each other during the trip, being prepared and prompt for all services and activities, and other positive contributions to the group’s study abroad experience. Daily Journal that will include: a. Daily Activities: Detail the places visited, background information about the place(s) we visited or activities you engaged in. b. Cultural Experiences: Include customs, traditions, language or phrases, animals, politics, environmental uniqueness, activities and events that are unique to the Malaysian people. What did you discover today in Malaysia that is considerably different or “foreign” to your thinking as an American living in the United States? c. Reflections: Include thoughtful insights about what you learned/gained from the days’ experiences, including thoughts, feelings, and emotions experienced. What did you find interesting? What did you find fascinating? What did you find challenging or difficult to wrap your mind around? What were some surprises along the way? The more that you elaborate in your insights the more discoveries you might make. Also include your thoughts about the group, the weather, and personal insights on what you are experiencing while abroad. Upon Return Reply to Me: When we board the plane to return home, I will give you your original Letter to Me. Write a reply to you that includes, “What I actually found, what I actually learned, what I actually discovered about me, ways what I discovered about me will influence my personal and professional development, and how this two weeks has changed my perspective for my future.” Email your Reply to Me to by Feb. 1, 2013.

Digital Travel Portfolio: Upon returning, create a digital travel portfolio of your journey, learning, awareness,

and insight both personally and professionally. You are the central character in your portfolio, in relation to others and experiences. Therefore, your portfolio will tell “your” story and draw the viewer into “your” experience abroad from the inside and the outside. Photos, journal entries, music, descriptions, research, and links to related websites will help to make your portfolio successful. It can be in the form of a digital journal, website, an annotated digital photo-journal, a virtual tour, or another digital design of your choice. Students who are taking it for spring credit “Malaysia: Study aboard – 3 credits” evaluation and course grading is based on specific grading criteria and assignment rubrics. Students taking it only for workshop credit or CEU will get a pass or fail. Percentages of Final Grade: Participation “Reply To” Letters Journal Digital Travel Portfolio and observations Total Percentage 100% 30% 10% 10% 50%

Evaluation and grading relies on a weighted system using totals from assignment. You may request and negotiate a final grade of “Incomplete” for emergency circumstances only. Grading Scale. The Department of Counseling uses the following grading scale: A AB+ B BC+ C CD+ D DF 94-100 90-93 87-89 84-86 80-83 77-79 74-76 70-73 67-69 64-66 60-63 0-59

Late Assignment Policy. All assignments are due on the date specified unless we have negotiated alternative arrangements prior to the due date.
