in this Class The best way to approach this class is to 1 read before class 2 review Power Point slides and 3 take the quiz If you need help understanding a concept or case I am available during office hours or by appointment if those times won t work in your schedule 1 Do the assigned reading Law is context intensive the rules applied are always specific to the facts or circumstances of the particular case Make note of any areas that are confusing when you do the reading so that you can ask your questions during class or at office hours 2 The PowerPoint slides for each chapter are located in the Resources tab in our class Sakai site The PowerPoints are the slides used in class and contain the basic rules of law There is one PowerPoint for each chapter although the readings are generally spread out over several days on the syllabus there are a few chapters that are just one class period Again if there are any legal concepts that are still confusing please ask your questions during class or office hours 3 Quiz There is a quiz for each chapter accessible in the Tests Quizzes tab in Sakai These quizzes vary in length just as the chapters vary in length The quizzes are True False and Multiple Choice Quizzes are open note open book and are not timed You are allowed to use your textbook and your notes but only your notes not the work product of others You are expected to take the quiz on your own without any other personal assistance other than me Quizzes must be completed by the date and time deadline posted on Sakai You are only allowed to submit each quiz one time Quizzes that are not completed before the deadline will be graded as a zero for that quiz There are no make up quizzes If you know that you will have a conflict or experience any difficulty in meeting a deadline for example if you are sick or traveling for a university excused absence please notify me immediately All the answers are either in the book or in the lecture and sometimes both you just need to understand the concept and be able to apply it to choose the correct answer this is why the readings and lectures are so important Note law is not a subject where you ll be able to look up the answer using a search engine because law is contextual doing this will likely result in the wrong answer Each question on each quiz is worth 1 point with the total points accumulating for your grade in the course ALL quizzes will count toward your final grade You will be able to see each quiz grade and your cumulative grade on Sakai under the Gradebook tab throughout the course Honor Code Every student is expected to conduct him her their self within the letter and spirit of the Honor Code which prohibits the giving or receiving of unauthorized aid in all academic processes You will be asked
