The Developmental Assessments (DA) will cover assignments for the chapters shown in the syllabus. They will often cover readings that have not yet been covered in class. Make up DAs are highly discouraged. However, if circumstances warrant, the student will take a computer generated Individual DA prior to the schedule DA date. The Individual DA grade will be substituted for the Team DA.
The researcher did not make any plan and act to add more changes to new instructions for the FB usage. The researcher observed that majority of students agreed that FB had enhanced the learning capabilities in preparing the classassignments and project after the major changes and instruction during the Second Cycle. It is a positive reflection for their commitment. In the interviews with some of them, they agreed that FB had brought great changes in their studies life. The researcher observed that the students too agreed that FB had improved the effectiveness of students thinking in producing quality classassignments and projects tremendously. The writer reflected that with the initial guidelines in preparing the assignment and project, the students were slowly building their team works to produce quality works. They were also found to be very serious in finishing their works and everyone was contributing to produce the best classassignments and projects. Overall, the researcher observed that the students did communicate but nothing much were discussed over the questions or answers on how to ensure their assignments and projects could be best produced in quality. The researcher reflection over this issue was that the assignments and projects they produced were really good but that did not really reflect their actual cognitive strengths when debating into how it could be best produced in quality. Not many questions or issues being raised during such period of time in preparing their assignments and projects. Most probably instructions given
This is not an AP (Advanced Placement) class. However, I will be trying to get you prepared for a college level Biology class. As such, you will need to do a lot of work on your own to memorize and understand the material. The format for the class will be as follows:
Please complete the assigned reading before class. This course requires regular and prompt student class attendance, preparation, and participation as well as significant clinical obligations. Poor student class attendance and punctuality, inadequate class preparation and participation or any failure to meet clinical obligations may result in withdrawal from the course, a lowered grade, and/or a failing grade. Note that more than three (3) absences may result in a lowered grade. More than four (4) absences may result in withdrawal.
I don’t post lecture notes, but lecture outlines (i.e., topic headings/subheadings) and audio recordings (starting by Week 2) of lectures will be posted on the course website, usually within two school days after the lecture. Audio recordings are useful if you miss a lecture or want to listen to lecture material again. However, they are not a substitute for regularly attending class. Students who wish to make their own audio recordings of lectures may do so for personal use. NOTE: Stuff happens, and some days electronic gremlins may cause podcasting equipment to malfunction. If so, you’ll need to get lecture notes from a classmate. Finally, I will be showing segments of films and videotapes during some lectures. You will need to be in class to see these films/videos. For several reasons, in a class of 300 students we cannot arrange "individual showings" for students who miss a film or videotape.
The Shutterfly share site that the class will be using is a community website for this class and limited other faculty to use and view. You should not download, copy, or print any images that are not your own without express written consent from the photographer/owner. Any break in these terms will be considered a violation of copyright and will result, at minimum, in a failing grade.
D. Final presentations will be done in teams. A team consists of 4-6 students gives a presentation on topics relevant to what we learnt from marketing management, topics should be agreed with the instructor beforehand. The presentation should be 15-20 minutes long (each member of the team is required to speak), grade will be given on the group basis, but may vary in accordance with performance of each speaker. This is your opportunity to be creative with visual aids and charts. The use of PowerPoint is strongly encouraged. You can create advertising, new packaging, a video, or something else (be innovative) to make your presentations interesting.
Discussion, chat, and e-mail spaces within this course are for class purposes only, unless otherwise stated. Please remember to conduct yourself collegially and professionally. Unlike in the classroom setting, what you say in the online environment is documented and not easily erased or forgotten.
COURSE OBJECTIVES: The primary objective of this course is to provide students a foundational survey of bankruptcy law, with special emphasis on consumer bankruptcy. A typical class will involve lecture and class discussion, along with working out problems from the textbook or handouts. Occasionally, we might have a guest speaker specializing in a particular bankruptcy-related practice area to help round out our education.
Activities/ Assignments: Interactive lecture, Read Chapter 12, study guide online/disk; student notes or handouts on ANGEL; class discussion; Suggested: interactive class activities on current issues in politics and/or the economy; creating societies based on different economic/political systems and engaging in comparison/contrast of such societies, etc.)
Arriving more than 10 minutes late for class or leaving mid-way through class will count as an absence toward your three allotted absences. Tardiness of less than 10 minutes will count as a ½ absence and are highly discouraged as we begin each class with the most important information. You are responsible for anything you miss in your absence. Your 6 th absence may result in course
3. Laboratory Experiments. In order to receive credit for a given lab experiment, you must attend lab, wear goggles and closed-toe shoes (no sandals!), and conduct the experiment. If you do not have goggles and proper shoes, then you will not be allowed to perform the experiment and you will lose those points! There are no make-up labs, so be sure to attend each session and perform each lab. Borrowing experimental data from another student is not allowed. Some experiments are done with lab partners, however, the lab reports are always individual assignments and are usually due at the end of the laboratory period, unless announced otherwise by Dr. Lemieux.
Blackboard is the instructional platform used in this class. Please make sure that your contact information is accurate and up-to-date. If you need assistance accessing Blackboard, Selfserve, or other technical support, please contact the Information Technology Center (504.816.8180). Here are other helpful links to ITC assistance.
a. You will be divided into groups. Each group will act as a new business team and be responsible for the development of a public relations campaign. Your group will choose its client. Be on the lookout for companies that are launching new products (such as Hasbro, Sony, General Mills), new services (think FedEx and Kinko’s) or new divisions (such as Delta’s Song Airlines). Perhaps you’d rather pick a company that needs to refresh its image or consumer perception.
A student absent from class and missing a scheduled test is entitled to a make up test if evidence is presented to the instructor that the absence was due to personal illness or death in the immediate family. Absences authorized by the Vice President for Academic Affairs for official purposes (athletics, performing groups, student government, etc.) also entitle a student to make up test privileges. Any absence from scheduled work must be covered by an excuse from the Vice President for Academic Affairs, Student Health Services, or a doctor before the student is allowed to make up that work. Any exception to this rule must be arranged before the missed work! Each student is directly responsible to the individual faculty member for making up work missed due to excused absences. ALL makes up work must be completed with one week after returning to class. In order to receive credit in this course, a student must attend a minimum of 75% of the class meetings. Students in this class will be allowed no more than 7 absences, excused and unexcused. If a student exceeds the allowable number of absences, a grade of "F" will be assigned in the course. Absences accrue from the first day the class meets; not the first day a student attends the class. If you are late registering for the class, any class meeting you missed prior to the first class meeting you attend will be considered an absence. In order to be counted present, a student must arrive on time for class and remain in class the entire time. When a student is tardy for a class, it is the student's responsibility to talk to the faculty member about changing the recorded absence to a tardy. This must be done on the day that the tardy occurred. Failure to do so will result in a recorded absence.
This section of the Psychology of Self-Discovery will explore the ways that people tell the story of their life, both in written form and through the expressive arts. Students will be writing about their own life, reading about memoir, and exploring ways to tell a life story through art and/or writing. The art process work will focus on narrative themes and assignments related to family history and personal development. The topics of optimism, resilience, happiness, and positive psychology will also be explored.
