the best way to get a hold of me since I am in class a majority of the time There is a messaging function in Jetnet that should be used first Should you need to send an attachment you will have to use the JCC email The JCC email is where I will provide feedback for the informative and persuasive speech INSTRUCTOR AVAILABILITY I am a part time instructor at JCC therefore I am not always on campus Like other instructors I do not typically work weekends So if you email me on a Saturday you may not get a response until Monday I do however try my best to check my email everyday during the week Should I be unable to check my email for an extended period of time I will notify you This has not been an issue in the past DUE DATES Keep in mind that all work is due by the assigned date With this in mind do not wait until the last moment to complete an assignment because this is inevitably when your computer crashes or when you get sick Tough luck with these circumstances Please do not bombard me with a list of excuses for not completing your work on time Any late work accepted is up to the instructor and is subject to a lower grade and may require written documentation ACADEMIC HONESTY This is strictly enforced College Academic Honesty Policy Academic Honesty is expected of all students It is the ethical behavior that includes producing their own work and not representing others work as their own either by plagiarism by cheating or by helping others to do so Faculty members who suspect a student of academic dishonesty may penalize the student by taking appropriate action up to and including assigning a failing grade for the paper project report exam or the course itself CLASSROOM ETTIQUETE Please contribute to the supportive climate of this class by observing the following norms If you have a mobile phone turn off the sound Please do not carry on a phone conversation even a short one while class is in session This includes text messaging also If you should arrive to class late please do not enter the classroom while a student is making a presentation You could disrupt their train of thought and you would certainly distract the audience Wait outside
