Welcome to my class! I’m looking forward to working with you over the next 9 weeks. I’m placing a short checklist of classroom norms that you’ll hear me talk about throughout our time together. Following these norms will support you in getting the best experience and grade possible in this class. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks and all the very best!

Read the Week’s Overview every week. Some students skip this thinking that’s it’s all generic and end up missing important directions for their work.
Meet all minimum word counts! Not meeting the word count for assignments usually means that you are not providing enough content to receive credit. If you respond to assignments and miss the word count (even by one word, sorry hate to be petty, but I expect you not be counting to the word!) this will result in losing 50% of the points. Then additional mark downs will occur for other errors. So please--make sure you meet the minimum word counts...it’s OK to go over--not OK to go under. Post a note in your individual forum for personal questions or issues. Only post questions pertaining to the week’s assignment in the Main Forum. If you prefer to post them in your individual forum, this is OK too. No personal information in the Main Forum.

Be honest and respectful of each other in the classroom discussion (will say more on this under the Week’s overview).
Cite all of your sources. Wikipedia is NOT a legitimate source because anyone can add to Wikipedia’s content. Use sources from the UOP libary, government websites, research databases, books, or legitimate newspapers (not your friend’s blog, etc.)

There are videos and supplemental readings during each week to enhance your experience. At times, we will discuss a video a part of the class discussion. If I post a discussion thread READ AND REPLY, you must do so in order to receive credit toward participation.

The final project’s instructions are correct in this SYLLABUS and in the Main Forum. They are different on the student website. You will be assessed based on what is in this syllabus and in the Main Forum.
