You are expected to check email and/or NYU-Classes (for in-person classes) or BigBlueButton (for online classes) daily for announcements concerning assignments, exam dates, class changes or cancellations, and other important information.
Missed assignments will lower the student's grade based on the percentage of the grade allocable to it. Late assignments are permitted only with advance notice to, and permission from, the professor.
Assignments and readings must be executed and are due on the dates indicated.
The assignment will be graded for content, grammar, and clarity.
Students are expected to behave in a professional manner and attend all classes unless otherwise discussed with the instructor.
Incompletes: Incompletes may be granted by the professor under extenuating circumstances. A student seeking an Incomplete grade must make a request to the faculty prior to the end of the semester, have completed at least 50% of the course, filled out the official paperwork, and have received approval from both the instructor and the academic department.
Academic Integrity: Plagiarism is the use of words, phrases, charts, or other materials from the work of someone else without correct and complete attribution of that work to its source. If a student needs to use material from a case, a book, or an article for a written analysis or presentation, he/she should indicate that the material is another's by quoting it and by citing the source (author, title, publication information, and page number or specific URL, plus the date of online access if from a Web page). All of this information, as well as the use of quotation marks or other clear graphic indication, is required to avoid plagiarism. The full policy is located at http://bit.ly/NYUacadpolicy and will be strictly enforced. If a student is unclear about whether something that he/she prepares for this course might be considered by the instructor as plagiarism, it is best to consult with the professor. For examples of how to use quotations and to cite material from published works, websites, guest lectures/public events, and any other source, students can consult writing handbooks, such as The Writer's Harbrace Handbook (Thomson Learning, 2002 or later edition). See guide for more information: https://guides.nyu.edu/friendly.php?s=plagiarismSCPS
Thorough reading and analysis of all reading assignments for each class session (each class date reflects the readings we will be discussing on that date in the syllabus outline or as communicated through your email NYU-Classes or BigBlueButton. The first class is NO exception. Prior to that class you must read any assigned materials for that session. You must read the assigned readings and participate fully in class.
No work for this course may be all or part of assignments prepared for or used in previous or current courses.
Students are strongly encouraged to take advantage of the online course evaluations that are distributed to their NYU email address. Providing constructive feedback for the instructor and for the University is extremely helpful as it allows us to continuously identify areas of strength and areas needing improvement in our courses. Please be advised that course evaluations will end at midnight on the last day of class.
