“I abhor averages. I like the individual case. A man may have six meals one day and none the next, making an average of three meals per day, but that is not a good way to live.” ~Louis D. Brandeis

Upon completion of this course, students should:
All university college policies for undergraduate students apply to this class. Please consult the undergraduate catalog or see the professor if you have questions.
We consider the Booth classroom environment to be a special place of focused engagement between professors and fellow students. As such, electronic devices are allowed in the classroom only for the purposes of course instruction. The use of computers, the internet (including email), downloaded material, or other electronic devices such as cell phones require the express permission of the instructor. Social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, blogging and other related activities are not allowed in Booth classrooms. The use of personal computers and other electronic devices in the classroom is a privilege which may be withdrawn at the discretion of the instructor at any time.
Presenting words or ideas, that are not your own, as if they were your own is a serious offense that may include loss of part or all of the marks for an assignment/test, failure in the course, dismissal from the University College, or other serious consequences. Three or more words taken directly from another author must be enclosed in quotation marks and referenced. The source of distinctive ideas must also be acknowledged in a footnote or reference. This applies to diagrams, statistical tables and the like, as well as to written material and materials or information from Internet sources. The following are unacceptable forms of academic behavior at Booth University College:
Instructors are required to report all allegations of plagiarism or cheating to the Academic Dean before a grade is assigned. The original assignment is submitted to the Academic Dean. The Academic Dean will chair a joint meeting of student and instructor to hear both the allegations and the student’s response to the allegations. The Academic Dean will then make a determination whether or not plagiarism or cheating has in fact occurred and decide on appropriate disciplinary measures. The student and instructor will be notified of the Academic Dean’s decision in writing. A copy of the decision will be sent to the Registrar and College President. The student has the right to appeal the decision of the Academic Dean (see Academic Appeals).
I do not accept late assignments nor do I grant “extensions”. Rather, late assignments incur a penalty. This is typically 5% per day, 7 days a week. If however, there is a valid and documented reason (typically requiring a note from your doctor) then the penalty for the period covered would be adjusted to 0% per day, after which the regular penalty will apply. The penalty adds up quickly. It is in your best interest, therefore, to submit work on time (or earlier). In the absence of extenuating and documented circumstances, term work which is 2 weeks late (or more) will no longer be accepted and will receive a grade of zero.
Policy on Missed In-Class Tests
Missed in-term tests will receive a grade of zero. The weight of the missed in-term test will be applied to the next in-term test if there is one. If there is no in-term test following the missed test, then the weight of the missed test will be applied to the final exam. There is no make-up work, or work for extra credit.
Policy on Unclaimed Term Work:
It is the student’s responsibility to claim all term work, assignments or tests. Any term work that has not been claimed by students will be held for a period of four months from the end of final exam period for the term in which the work was assigned. At the conclusion of this time, all unclaimed term work will be destroyed according to FIPPA guidelines.
Grading and Evaluation
All assignments are letter-graded (A, B, C, etc.) and are to be typed, double-spaced, with 1 inch margins, in 11-point font, use gender-inclusive language, and be properly formatted and referenced using the current APA style.
How points and percentages equate to grades
The actual schedule may change as class requirements unfold. However, due dates for assignments are unlikely to change.
