|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.
your own representative and not to pass the work of others off as your
dishonesty, in any form, including plagiarizing, is deplorable.
If you are caught cheating or plagiarizing (these are
defined on WSU's Standards of
Conduct for Students page), 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 choosing.
Do not use cell phones or smoke during class, lab, or group work. Turn cell phones off during class and lab. Refrain from smoking in class and lab, including while walking from indoor to outdoor lab activities. Out of consideration for others, do not smoke in assigned groups outside of class time either. Second-hand smoke is toxic and bothers some people who may be too polite to say so.
|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.
“Washington State University is committed to maintaining a safe environment for its faculty, staff, and students. Safety is the responsibility of every member of the campus community and individuals should know the appropriate actions to take when an emergency arises.” Please become familiar with: WSU Pullman Campus Safety Plan and WSU Emergency Management. Also be sure you have supplied safety alert information at: WSU Alert.
