Homework1: Student Ethics 16169230356 Osman GÜLERCAN
“Students are expected to adhere to and practice the Code of Ethics on a District and college level and while representing the District or college of the District.”1 “Treating people with respect, giving them a chance, creating the impression that you are a polite person that is ready to cooperate are great ways to start a semester. These are important skills in the "real world." They represent an essential skill at college. Remember, professors expect students to be ready to accept responsibility for their actions.”2
“Exercising personal freedom is one of the most appealing things about college. With the casual dress and attitudes that prevail in American colleges, however, it's not surprising that some college students don't know where to draw the line on individual expression and social interchange. While the connection between your classroom behavior and course grade may be not be clear, there are some behaviors that are clearly rude, unacceptable and in poor taste. 1. Habitually arriving to class late. While some teachers are laxed about tardiness, it is disruptive to the lecture or other activities when all heads turn to watch your entrance. If your schedule just won't allow you to get to this class on time, drop it and take one that is convenient for you. 2. Habitually leaving class early. Don't schedule your job, other appointments nor activities during your class hour. For example some students would come to class to take the quiz that teacher gives at the beginning of class, then leave. Even though these students left quietly, they routinely missed the rest of the class which included the lecture and discussion of the concepts. 3. Addressing the teacher in a casual manner. "Hey Dude, what's up?" , it is okey between students, but not appropriate for your teacher. This even applies for teachers who dress and behave casually. Avoid personal comments or questions about their manner of dress or family. The teacher may be friendly, but is not your buddy. A teacher who is overly friendly is crossing the line himself or herself, and is luring you into another area of behavior that can be devastating for both of you.
4. Dominating classroom discussion, even to the point of interrupting the teacher with some point you want to make.Some students jump into classroom discussions so enthusiastically that they trample through the teacher's lecture interjecting comments, many of them less than insightful. This type of student not only upsets the teacher, but infuriates the other students. 5. Turning off cell phones and pagers. There are some behaviors that demonstrate we do not understand what we are doing. Having a phone go off in class is a clear indication that a student is not thinking about others and does not understand or accept why they are in class. 6. Eating and drinking in class. Although some teachers of early morning classes may tolerate your cup of coffee, other teachers are not so generous. The possibility of spilling, not to mention the disruption it causes, has lead many colleges to post "No Eating" signs in classrooms, library and labs. 7. Chatting during class discussion or while fellow students are giving oral reports. Most instructures don't mind if you ask your neighbor something quitely, but talking the classmates during the lecture and presentations disrupts the normal learning envoriment. If a student desires to engage such behavior, he or she may ask for leaving the class. If student needs the proffesor to slow down to rewiev some material rising the hand and asking for the situation will be enough. 8. Chaeting during the examination. Plagiarism will not be forgiven. It is the one of the biggest crimes in school life of student. In here the culture is important. Some of the countries do not have this problem. Teacher have confidence about their student, in the same way, students have resposibility about this subject. But generally, plagiarism is comman problem in most of the countries. 9. Angrily confronting the teacher. Spend time understanding the course syllabus and requirements from the start to cut down on later misunderstanding. Some teachers are laxed about attendance, for example, while other teachers have zero tolerance for tardiness even to the point of locking the classroom door. Some teachers accept late and makeup assignments, while others don't. If you meet with the teacher as problems arise you will avert problems. Attending college classes should be stimulating, informative and sometimes even fun, but only when the environment is conducive to learning. While teachers have varying levels of tolerance for various classroom behaviors, you can make your own college experience enjoyable by showing courtesy and respect toward your classmates and teachers alike. 10. Asking instructors to repeat information that you missed when you have skipped class. While high school teachers are expected to accommodate an "absent" learning style, college professors will not. Many professors will structure class so it is impossible to succeed by
skipping class - if you do miss class, have a good excuse and accept responsibility for what you missed. 11. Complaining about an instructors teaching style. College professors are not required to structure class around the individual needs of each student. Some will take remarks about how they teach as indications that students are not ready to accept the differences between high school and college. 12. Reading of materials(i.e.,newspaper, textbooks from other classses, materials for an organization),doing a homework due that day,etc, should not occur during the presentations or lectures. If you need to do these things, leave the class first. 13. Not arguing - being willing to accept that reasonable people can disagree. Understanding and accepting your role as a student is important. Professors cannot argue with students about how they feel about a course's content. Remember, we can accept and learn things we don't agree with 100%. School is a time for learning - after we graduate, we will have more opportunities to apply what we have learned as we believe is appropriate. 14. Sleeping in the class. Sleeping in class is disrespectful(especially when someone is giving a presentation or there is a guest speaker. ) If a student is tired he or she might stay at home and get the sleep. Class attendance is based on both presence and participation(which won't occur while student is sleeping.)”3
—Representation “Every student is expected to represent him or herself honestly and respectfully in all situations, whether orally or in written statements. Honest and respectful representation includes, but is not limited to, providing only truthful material information on all applications, financial aid forms, waivers, and any other official document. Students are also expected to behave respectfully to all administrators, faculty, staff, students, and visitors in a college environment and to behave respectfully when representing any of the colleges at off-campus events. Students will not consciously misrepresent him or herself to any member of college community or to any other person while representing any college.”4
—Academic Honesty “Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of academic integrity. Work that is not of the student's own creation will receive no credit. If a student is uncertain of what these standards are, he or she may consult his or her instructor for appropriate counsel, but a student's ignorance is no legitimate defense for academic dishonesty. Academic dishonesty includes lying, cheating, stealing, and using unauthorized materials on any assignment, quiz or exam. • The act of lying is to intentionally provide false information or a false statement with the purpose of misleading or with irresponsible regard of the truth. Lying, in both academic and non-academic activities, is impermissible. • Cheating is acting dishonestly in order to gain an unfair advantage. Cheating includes giving or receiving unauthorized aid on any assignment, quiz, or exam. Instructors must be consulted regarding which materials are acceptable for students to use on any assignment, quiz, or exam. Not complying with the restrictions of the instructor will result in appropriate discipline, as decided by the instructor or department. Cheating also includes using the same material of work previously used for another course unless the student has permission from the instructor to do so. Cheating furthermore includes plagiarism, which is when a student uses the ideas of another and declares it as his or her own. Students are required to properly cite the original source of the ideas and information used in his or her work. • Stealing is the act of taking without permission and without intention to return. The prohibition of stealing includes property of any nature as well as academic work.”5 — Respect for District Rules and Regulations “Students are expected to adhere to the rules and regulations set by the college. • School Property: Graffiti and defacement of school property is unacceptable and a violation of District Rule and Regulation. Students shall be responsible for the costs of the damages resultant from their behavior. In order to ensure that campus facilities remain in pristine condition, students are also expected to report instances of graffiti or defacement of school property immediately as well as consciously account for or dispose properly of their belongings. • Illegal Substances: The use of illegal drugs and alcohol is not permitted college property as well as the abuse or misuse of prescription drugs.
• Sexual Assault and Harassment: Students shall refrain from using language or acting in a manner that is disrespectful or inappropriate towards other students and members of the college community. Sexual assault and harassment is inexcusable and shall result in disciplinary action in accordance with District or college policy. —Respect for the Open Exchange of Ideas Students shall be guaranteed that their First Amendment right of Freedom of Speech will be observed by all college members, including other students. Students are encouraged to engage others in thoughtful and meaningful dialogue while refraining from acting or using language with malicious intent. • Classroom Conduct: Students must behave respectfully toward their peers and professors. In the classroom setting, students may not interrupt their classmates or professor, make fun of them or their expressed views, or disrupt the learning environment. It is important to maintain the best learning environment for all students and professors.”6
“An honor code or honor system is a set of rules or principles governing a community based on a set of rules or ideals that define what constitutes honorable behavior within that community. The use of an honor code depends on the idea that people (at least within the community) can be trusted to act honorably. Those who are in violation of the honor code can be subject to various sanctions, including expulsion from the institution. Honor codes are most commonly used in the United States to deter academic dishonesty.”7
Student ethics is very important part of school life. Students should adapt their behavior and communication skills to college ethics rules. In Turkey, “student discipline regulations”8 were published by Higher Education Senate (YÖK) at 1985. If some of the rules for student ethics in these rules are not conformed by students such as cheating, stealing etc. they are punished their own faculty dean’s office with these regulations. Students can be object their punishments to local law court if they think there are some mistakes. On the other hand, In USA, there is “honor code” that which rules are very strict. In this system there is “student law court” which is formed by students and laws usually concluded with to fired. Also, there is no disapproval rights for students. To sum up, student student ethics rules are supposed to adapt by students in order to keep on their academic life continuously.
