Attendance and Participation:
  • Regular on-time attendance and full participation in class is critical to learning. Of course, illness and other emergencies cannot be avoided. If you are unable to attend a class session, you must call or email the instructor in advance. Similarly, you must call your mentor teacher in advance if you are unable to meet a field visit commitment. You must make up all field absences. If you are unable to attend school, you need to call your mentor teacher in advance. Do not rely on your peers to relay messages-make sure you communicate directly with your mentor.
  • This course is planned on the assumption that you will come on time and come prepared to participate. The instructor reserves the right to adjust your grade as a response to absences or excessive tardiness.
  • In accordance with the College of Education Professional Conduct Policy, attendance and punctuality in class meetings and field experiences are critical to your success in this course and in the Program. In the case of recurring absences or tardiness, your Advisor will be notified and you may be required to attend a meeting regarding your attendance. More than two absences in class or in your field placement will affect your grade and may result in a failing grade for the course.

Academic Honesty and Integrity :
  • We assume that the student is honest and that all course work and examinations represent the student's own work. Violations of the academic integrity policy such as cheating, plagiarism, selling course assignments or academic fraud are grounds for academic action and/or disciplinary sanction as described in the university's student conduct code.
  • Incidents of plagiarism are taken very seriously and will be pursued. Students are strongly cautioned not to copy any text verbatim or use someone else's ideas on class quizzes, tests, reports, projects, or other class assignments without using appropriate quotations and source citations.
  • For University regulations on academic dishonesty and plagiarism, refer to:
