CMST 10 Disability Accommodations: If you feel that you will need academic accommodations in this class due to limits imposed by a disability, then contact the Disability Resource Center ( ) to make the necessary arrangements. Academic Honesty: (Really, why would anyone want to cheat when doing an assignment that will make their life wonderful?????) Important to Know about Deadlines/Due Dates: My approach is to treat every student equally, professionally and fairly. Please do not ask me to make exceptions or alterations for ANY of the course requirements, deadlines, and /or procedures, unless you can demonstrate that such treatment for you would be deemed fair by the rest of the students in this class. A most useful tool is a calendar. Use one to list all deadlines and create a timeline to alert yourself to benchmark sub- deadlines. Consider using the calendar that is included. PRINT ALL ASSIGNMENTS EARLY; THAT SEEMS TO BE THE BIGGEST CAUSE OF NOT BEING ON TIME.
CMST 10 Classroom Management: o No Cell Phone use is allowed. In the case of a family emergency, please talk to me. o No put-downs. The purpose of this course is to grow by taking interpersonal risks. Let’s be supportive. No put-downs apply to self put- downs, too. o Bring your textbook every day. I will not read the book to you—you must educate yourself in that way. o Late is late. Be in your seat when class begins. A tardy equals a half of an absence. Leaving early equals half an absence. You are only allowed 2 class periods of no participation before your grade drops by one letter grade.
