|Be a positive, contributing member of the class.
You are expected to act in a manner that will facilitate
your learning as well as the others' learning. Come to
class prepared. Share your knowledge and experiences with
the class. Do not disrupt or prevent learning by others.
Listen with respect. Enjoy learning!
Attend and actively participate regularly. Participation is important for learning. In this class, you will often work in groups. Students cannot learn effectively when others are not engaged. Be an asset to your group. If you must miss class or lab, find out what we did and ask for handouts. If you are very sick and contagious, please do not come to class and infect others.
Participate as your own representative and not to
pass the work of others off as your own.
Academic dishonesty, in any form, including
plagiarizing, is deplorable. If you are caught
cheating or plagiarizing (see: WAC
504-26-010 Definition 3 under Standards
of Conduc), you will receive a
zero for the activity, and it will be reported to your
advisor and to the Office
of Student Standards and Accountability. You
may also be expelled from class. If we suspect you
have cheated, we may assign a zero or we may ask you to
repeat the activity under conditions of our
Use electronic devices wisely. Cell
phones should not be used in class or lab without
permission from the instructor. Turn cell phone
ringers off during class and lab. Computers may
only be used in class for taking notes; any other uses
must be approved by the instructor.
Follow class policies and instructions.
Violations of class policies or instructors’
instructions could result in losing privileges, such as
the use of a computer to take notes, or in being
expelled from classes or labs.
|Safety will be enforced
in this class. Safety for yourself and
others is of utmost importance. There will be times
during this class when hand tools and equipment, including
shovels and saws, will be used. While these may not
seem particularly dangerous, they can injure people badly
if used thoughtlessly or inappropriately. Your full
attention when safety instructions are being given and
when using such equipment is MANDATORY. Risky
behavior, such as carelessness, teasing (e.g. tossing
snowballs at someone), or being irresponsible WILL NOT BE
TOLERATED. You could be dismissed from the remainder
of a class or lab. Having fun in this class is
encouraged, but not at the expense or risk of others.
