Required Supplies: - Each student is responsible for keeping notes and handouts in an organized

bring to school is highly suggested.

Attendance Policy:This class will follow MISD Student Handbook guidelines. Attendance to all classes is expected. Should you anticipate an absence, please notify the instructor in advance. An excessive number of absences will prohibit the successful completion of this course.

Make-Up Work: MISD Student Handbook states that students have one day for each day absent to complete make-up work (see student handbook). If you know that you will be absent, notify your teacher for assignments to cover the dates absent. It is not always possible to get assignments on short notice, but the teacher will do her best. If a scheduled quiz or test is missed, upon returning to the class the student must arrange a time before school or after school with in 2 class days. If there is a short term assignment due on the date of the assignment, then the student must turn-in the assignment upon returning to class. If any long term assignment, assignments given at least two weeks in advanced, or essay is due on the date of the absence, that assignment is still due on the original due date even if the student is absent. If any student who misses an assignment due to ISS, AEP, or a school activity, he or she is still responsible for work that was complete in class the day of his or her absence.

If you cannot attend class, email me (the instructor) as soon as you know of your absence. That way, we can keep in contact despite your absence. It is your responsibility to learn from your fellow students what you missed and if there have been any changes to the assignments. If you've asked your fellow students and you're still confused, feel free to email me before or ask me after class for clarification after you have spoken to other students. You may also check the teacher’s website for additional information.

Turnitin.comLSCS subscribes to Turnitin.com, which supports faculty in their quest to uphold academic integrity. Student coursework may be submitted to the scrutiny of the Turnitin software. Please note that the submitting of assignments to Turnitin does not necessarily constitute an accusation or suspicion of plagiarism on the student’s part.

In ENGL 2311, all students will use the Turnitin software. On the day an assignment is due, you will upload it to Turnitin. No paper copies will be accepted.

(We will discuss how to use the Turnitin.com software in class.) Students will receive comments on graded papers through TurnItIn as well.

Any assignments that receive more than 10% on the originality report will receive a zero on their assignment.

Using a previous essay from another class is plagiarism & cheating.

MLA Format:Essays written in class will follow the MLA format provided below:

Title all essays with creative, original titles (not “Essay One”). Titles are not to be changed in format, so don’t bold, italicize, enlarge, underline, or color your titles. Make sure your titles are capitalized properly.

Do not add extra lines between paragraphs. Indent each new paragraph 1” margins on all sides Header: Number all pages on the top right of each page with your last name

and then the page number Heading: on the top left of page one only include student name, instructor

name, class name, and due date. Use Times New Roman, regular (not bold or italicized), 12 point font. Write in the first or third person (avoid use of “you”)

Late Work:No late work will accepted.

Academic Integrity:The Lone Star College System and Montgomery ISD uphold the core values of learning: honesty, respect, fairness, and accountability. Both promote the importance of personal and academic honesty. Both also embrace the belief that all learners—students, faculty, staff, and administrators—will act with integrity and honesty and must produce their own work and give appropriate credit to the work of others. Fabrication of sources, cheating, or unauthorized collaboration is not permitted on any work submitted. Using an essay written for a previous course in this class is plagiarism.

The consequences for academic dishonesty are determined by the teacher, the teacher and high school administration, the teacher and LSCS academic dean, and/or the teacher and chief student services officer and can include but are not limited to

1. Receiving a grade of zero or "F" for an exam or assignment,2. Receiving disciplinary action from Montgomery High School administration3. Receiving a grade of "F" for the course,4. Being withdrawn from the course or program,5. Being expelled from the college system.

Teachers will clearly explain how the student’s actions violated the academic integrity policy, how a grade was calculated, and the actions taken. (Revised Spring, 2009; 2009-2010 Catalog)

Drop Dates Notice:April 4, 2017 is the last day to withdraw from the course and receive a “W” on your LSC transcript.
