Many incidents of plagiarism result from students lack of understanding about what constitutes plagiarism. However, you are expected to familiarize yourself with UCFs policy on plagiarism, and to consult your instructor and your handbook if you are unsure of how to document sources. All work you submit must be your own scholarly and creative efforts. UCFs Golden Rule defines plagiarism as follows: whereby anothers work is used or appropriated without any indication of the source, thereby attempting to convey the impression that such work is the students own. Plagiarism or cheating might result in an F for the assignment or an F for the entire course, depending on the teachers discretion. The instructor might also assign a Z grade, which will appear on your transcript and denote academic dishonesty.
ADAThe University of Central Florida is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for all persons with disabilities. This syllabus is available in alternate formats upon request. Students with disabilities who need accommodations in this course must contact the professor at the beginning of the semester to discuss needed accommodations. No accommodations will be provided until the student has met with the professor to request accommodations. Students who need accommodations must be registered with Student Disability Services, Student Resource Center Room 132, phone (407) 823-2371, TTY/TDD only phone (407) 823-2116, before requesting accommodations from the professor.
The University Writing Center (UWC) is a free resource for UCF undergraduates and graduates. At the UWC, a trained writing consultant will work individually with you on anything you're writing (in or out of class), at any point in the writing process from brainstorming to editing. Appointments are recommended, but not required. For more information or to make an appointment, visit the UWC website at http://www.uwc.ucf.edu, stop by MOD 608, or call 407.823.2197.
Late Work and Make-up PolicyIn order to be successful in this course, it is imperative that you submit all of your work on time. You must submit all major assignments in order to pass the course. I do accept late work, but you will be deducted one full letter grade for each day late, including weekends and days in between classes. If you email me your assignments, I will reply with my comments electronically. Any assignment submitted after our regular class time will be counted late.If you are absent, it is your responsibility to contact me for any work that you need to make up. If you are absent on the day that an assignment is due, however, you will still be penalized for late submission. Be sure to make prior arrangements with me if you know that you will be missing class on the day that an assignment is due.

What you can expect from me: I will do my best to be available to answer questions in and outside of class. I will do my best to respond promptly to your questions via e-mail (within 24 hours during
weekdays). I will provide you with ample feedback on your writing. It is my goal to give you the chance to
understand why you earned a particular grade, and/or why you didnt. I will address you with respect, both in person and via e-mail. I will do my best to return your work to you with feedback in a timely manner.
What I will expect from you: You are expected to have a Knights email account and check it regularly. This is how I will
communicate important updates. We will also be communicating via our Webcourses section and Facebook page. You are not required to have a Facebook page, but can choose to participate in our discussions through that medium.
You are not to have laptops or other electronics open during class unless you have been instructed to do so for writing and/or researching. If you are texting during class, I will assume that you are choosing not to engage in class discussion, and will mark you absent for that class session.
You will address your instructor and your peers with respect, both in person and via e-mail. You will come to class on time. Three tardies count as one absence. You will submit all of your assignments typed. You must also have access to printer, as you
will be required to print some of your readings and assignments.
This syllabus is subject to change at instructors discretion
