Readings, Assignments and Classroom Contact Requirements
Students are expected to maintain routine contact with the instructor throughout the course. While the number of contacts may vary according to the specific course and individual student need, the University requires periodic weekly contacts during the semester. The method of discussion will be on-line related to issues concerning assignments, exams, and research papers.
All work submitted must be original work. Incidents of academic dishonesty will result in you failing the assignment, and repeat incidents will result in failing the course. I check assignment regularly for incidents of academic dishonesty. Please read and understand the University policy on academic dishonesty. You must credit your sources and provide the appropriate references on your assignments.
Standards for Written Work
Written communications is an essential tool for any professional. As with any skill, good writing is the result of practice, followed by feedback, and the use of relevant and appropriate sources. Therefore, the quality of writing is graded as part of every written assignment. Below are the grading criteria for each written assignment in this class.
Course Requirements Summary
The Forum assignments for this course are designed to promote interactivity among students and enhance the online learning process. The Forums provide maximum flexibility because you do not have to be online at the same time as another person and you can read what other students have written.
Please keep in mind that the forum assignments require you to make at least 1 post to the discussion board of at least 250 words about the topic and also respond to 2 or more peer posts, with at least 150 words per peer post. Please be advised that there will be point deductions if you do not comply with the requirements of the assignment. To get the maximum value from this class, I would encourage you to go over and above the required minimum number of responses to posts. Each one of you will have a different and unique experience that we can all learn from. Your participation in the Forums unleashes the power of synergy into our classroom. To facilitate this interaction, please be prompt when posting your discussion board work for each week; this provides time for the others to actively engage in the dialogue. For practical reasons, when you respond to other learners’ posts, please start your response by referencing their name. I will read and grade your participation by reading the discussion board. I hope this is a great learning experience in this class. Be sure to include correctly cited sources for each initial response to the weekly Forum assignments, using APA format. This is required and will count toward your Forum grade.
The Forum Introduction Exercise will not be graded but will consist of student peer interaction using the classroom Discussion Board. Please view the Discussion Board area of the classroom to write and post a paragraph introducing yourself to me and the other students in the course. Include your background, your objectives for taking the course, and anything else you would like to share with the group. Take this chance to respond to your fellow students to get to know each other as well. I hope we can know each other a little better and I can address your needs as we work through this course together.
The research paper will require students to submit 8-10 double-spaced, typed pages regarding a topic identified in the textbook or another topic relative to this course. The rubric used to grade the research papers will be found in the Week 5 and 7 Assignments area of the course, as well as attached below. It is important that you follow APA formatting guidelines and site your references throughout your paper and at the end of the paper. Upon completion, upload your research paper to the Assignments area of the classroom.
