THE SCC LEARNING INITIATIVE
To foster the development of a learning-centered community college by:
 improving student engagement,
 accessing learning outcomes, and
 reforming college culture.

The assignments for this class will include a variety of each of the following: technology skills, critical thinking activities,
and writing assignments. This course will require that all students complete a learning outcome assignment. The
learning outcomes that will be assessed for this course are Technology Skills and Critical Thinking.

ATTENDANCE:
 Attend all class meetings.
 Be on time.

 Bring all class materials needed.

Tardiness is disruptive to the class and may also result in being counted absent. Attendance will be recorded at the
beginning of class and if you come in afterwards, your attendance will still be recorded as being absent. If you know
beforehand that you will be late for a legitimate reason, let me know and I will give you credit for attendance.

Missed assignments can be difficult to make up if you are out when the assignment material is being discussed in class. If
you are out, it is your responsibility to inquire about any assignment that you missed that may be made up. Excessive
absences (more than 20%) may result in less than a passing grade for the semester. If it becomes necessary to stop
attending class, you must go through proper drop procedures; otherwise your final grade will be an F. Proper drop
procedures consist of contacting Student Services and completing a Drop/Add card which must be signed by me. Unless
there are extreme circumstances, withdraws have to be requested prior to March 12
th
.

TESTS:
 Announced ahead of time.
 Missed tests may not be made up.
 Final exam will count as missed test grade.
 This may only be used for one missed test.
 Subsequent missed tests will count as a 0.
 Final exam has to be taken to receive credit for this course.
