Academic Dishonesty Policy and Penalty for Violation:
Students who cheat or plagiarize will fail. This is a fairness issue.
Assignments, Tests, Quizzes and Final Exam Schedule, with percentage/points of grade:
1.
Three non-cumulative exams assessing the textbook reading; all must be taken. 20% Each
2.
Students must keep an academic journal consisting of writing in response to discussion of primary source
documents. 30% Total
3.
In-class discussions of documents and/or monographs. 10% Total
Grading:
Letter grade conversion chart:
11 = A
10 = A9 = B+
8 =B
7 = B6 = C+
5 =C
4 = C3 = D+
2 =D
1 = DI give letter grades for assignments and exams. The grading scale is used to convert letter grades to numbers, The
numbers 1-11 are then averaged and multiplied by the percentages above. For example, a student earning an average
exam grade of 5 (a C) would earn that 5 multiplied by .60 = 3. If a student has missed or failed assignments, a zero is
averaged in for each one missed or failed. Those averages for each course component: exams, academic journal,
discussion, etc., are then added to determine final grades. I use plus and minus grades, acknowledging that the college
only uses whole letter grades.

Class Policies
Attendance: Professors are required to take attendance.
A student who misses class is responsible for providing a documented excuse for medical. I do not excuse for any
undocumented reasons. If a student misses 2 undocumented classes, a whole letter grade will be subtracted from the
final total grade. If more classes are missed, additional subtractions will be necessary. Absence from class could result
in failure, regardless of grades earned.
Electronic Device Use and Email Policy:
I will answer email Monday through Thursday. Provide a brief question and the day and hour you attend.
Late Assignment Policy:
A grade penalty will be assessed for each late assignment. Late assignments are those turned in after the class period
designated as the due date.
Make-up Exam Policy:
I will allow make-ups at my discretion only. These must be done in a timely fashion, within a week of a missed exam.
Must be taken at the testing center and may be different than exams taken by the whole class. This is a fairne ss issue.
Withdrawal Policy:
I may withdraw any student who misses 3 or more consecutive classes.
