3. The Strategic Plan: Detailed plan on what you are going to do to get the job that you want when you graduate.
Methods of Instruction:
The course will be taught through lecture, power point presentations, group work, and class discussion. The instructor will periodically provide supplementary handouts. This course works best if the student reads the assigned chapter and readings before class and then comes to class prepared to discuss the readings. The instructor will assume that all students are prepared and will occasionally call upon the students to answer questions. It is advised to obtain a phone number/ email address from a fellow student so that you may call/ email him/ her in the event that you miss a class. I will warn you ahead of time, notice how the Course Outline is tentative, therefore, dates for tests, due dates for papers, and chapter lectures are subject to change and will most likely change! In other words, this syllabus is subject to change. It is your responsibility to come to class, as it is also your responsibility to make sure you turn papers in on time and show up for class lectures and tests.
Attendance and Participation: Class attendance and participation is expected and will be recorded through the completion of quizzes at the start of class. Failure to attend more than two classes (excused or unexcused) will adversely affect one’s grades. Excessive tardiness will not be tolerated, as it is a disruption to both the instructor as well as the class. Two tardies count as one absence. I expect each class member to behave as an adult. Policies and procedures regarding academic dishonesty as outlined by University policy will be adhered to in this class.
Make-up Exams: There will be no make-up exams/quizzes. If you miss a test, your grade will be adversely affected, so don’t miss a test/quiz!
Late Assignments: All assignments are due at the start of class. No late assignments are permitted. It is the students’ responsibility to make sure the instructor receives intended emails/ assignments and to check that the grade posted on Moodle is correct. You have 24 hours from the date the grades are posted to contest them. If you fail to contest the grade within the 24 hours, you forfeit any right to contest the grade. Grades will be posted the 9:00 AM the Friday following the exam/project.
Project: All projects will be typed and submitted in a professional manner. Proper APA citations will be expected on all work where a reference, meaning other author’s work, is used. Plagiarized papers will receive a big fat F. Students with English Language difficulties are required to seek the assistance of the Learning Resource Center. You are in college; therefore all work should look professional and prove that you are indeed in college.
Grading Criteria: All papers will be graded based upon proper and correct content according to the projects’ outline. Grammar, spelling, punctuation, and correct use of the English language are all criteria that will be graded and checked. Again, you are in college and by now should have an understanding of correct written English.
Students with Disabilities: It is the responsibility of any student who has special needs, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), to inform the instructor of this class as soon as possible so reasonable accommodation may be provided.
Cell phones, hats, and IPODS: Please turn off all cell phones before the start of class. In addition, please remove all hats during class, tests, and quizzes. Use of electronic devices during class is not allowed, excluding calculators.
Evaluation of Student Progress:
Grading System: Students will be evaluated in the following assignments:
Midterm 100 pts.
Final 100 pts.
Quizzes 120 pts
Strategic Plan 100 pts.
No plus or minus grades given
Structure of Strategic Plan
About the Strategic Plan:
According to the U.S. Department of Labor (1997), only about 55 percent of college graduates were in jobs related to their study major four years after obtaining a bachelor’s degree. The purpose of the strategic plan is to help make sure you are not part of the 45% who are not.
