Instructor and Student Interaction Expectations

Students are expected to check their messages, discussion boards, and assignments at least every other day (weekdays). Any messages should be responded to within two days. The instructor will answer any messages within 24 hours. If any situations arise that prevent you from your work, please notify your instructor immediately.

Learner Guidance

As a student, it is your responsibility to ask questions or ask for clarification about topics and content that you are unsure after the available resources have been utilized.  As the instructor, I will make sure there are clear instructions for how to complete assignments and when to submit assign assignments.

Academic Honesty

You are expected to do your own work. You may not copy and paste from another student or website unless you follow instructions about how to tell where you found your work. 

 

Professionalism / Disposition 

Within this class, students are expected to respect others' opinions, complete assignments on time, regularly attend class (online and/or face-to-face), make an effort to complete assignments completely and correctly, pay careful attention to detail in following instructions, be helpful to peers, and exhibit cooperation in group work situations.

Class Organization

This class will be taught during a two week period with a third week available for follow up. All assignments will be administered online, but access to computers and time for completion will be given during regular school hours.
