  • COURSE POLICIES ATTENDANCE The instructor reserves the right to excuse certain absences for students who have official university documentation. All other excuses are NOT open to discussion. YOU ARE ALLOTTED THREE ABSENCES. After three absences you will be penalized by half a letter grade for each additional absence. Speeches not delivered during scheduled speech times will not be accepted. Please make arrangements with me to deliver it before the due date if you will be absent on speech days. DEADLINES/LATE WORK Failing to give your speech on your assigned date will result in a zero. Assignments are due on the date and at the time assigned. Not delivering all four assigned speeches will result in automatically receiving an F in the course regardless of your numerical average. Computer or printer problems do not constitute an excuse for late or incomplete work. *I am more than willing to read through and answer questions about early drafts of class projects but will not be able to provide adequate assistance within 24 hours of a deadline. HONOR CODE POLICY: Violations of academic integrity are very serious matters and are clearly documented in the ASU Student Handbook. The work a student submits in a class is expected to be the students own work and must be completed for that particular assignment. Plagiarism means intentionally or knowingly representing words or ideas of another as ones own. This may include you own previous work. Plagiarism includes quoting or paraphrasing from other sources without acknowledging/citing the source of your information or presenting quoted material as your own words. You much be very clear about attribution of sources and you must know how to cite sources in a paper. Please see full Honor Code Policy at http://www.angelo.edu/cstudent/documents/pdf/student_handbook.pdf PRIVACY POLICY/STUDENT CONDUCT Student professional behavior in the classroom is documented in the ASU Student Code of Conduct (See student code of conduct for full description). This also includes fabricating or plagiarizing documents that may insult or tarnish another student. Ethical behavior and respecting each other will lead to a good semester and productive relationships. Grades and course performance are also considered private information. It is unethical to discuss another students grades. Students are also not to openly discuss their grade (good or bad) in my classroom. It is unethical and disrespectful to argue test items or complain about your individual performance. I will not discuss individual grade inquiries until 24 hours after the scores or performance evaluation has been distributed. A request to discuss a test item or score will require a written request and appoint time outside, before, or after class.
