EXPECTATIONS FOR PARTICIPATION AND DAILY WORKincludes class attendance, evidence of preparation before class, frequency and quality of contributions to class discussion and small group activities, and overall engagement with materials, activities, and people.

  • Preparation. Read assigned texts carefully and bring them with to class.

  • Engagement. Actively participate in lectures, discussions, and activities by asking questions when something is not clear, promoting critical thinking and discussion by drawing upon course materials, lectures, and contributions from classmates. Electronic devices are allowed for accessing course materials only, misused electronics and other sources of distraction are not allowed.

  • Respect. Students should be open to and respectful of other students’ views. Discussions should be kept relevant to the course material and issues at hand; they should NOT include personally directed comments or attacks, use of negative stereotypes, or broad generalizations about groups of people, or anything else that unnecessarily makes members of the class uncomfortable. Inappropriate use of language, including but not limited to cursing, name- calling, racial/ethnic/sexual/ religious prejudice, and offensive use of slang or body language will not be tolerated! Students who disrupt the safe space of the classroom may lose participation credit or be dismissed from class.


  • Quality. Papers should demonstrate an original, focused, and thesis-driven engagement with the questions, themes, and texts specified by the assignment.

  • Format. Assignments are expected to meet all specifications upon submission, including but not limited to a uniquely descriptive title, 1 inch margins, 12pt standard Times New Roman font, standard double-spacing without extra spaces between paragraphs, and a header of no more than 4 single spaced lines. Failure to meet length requirements or use of formatting techniques to lengthen or shorten papers, inappropriate use of quotations, and/or not addressing all objectives of a question will result in significant grading penalties. Websites such as Wikipedia, online study guides, personal webpages, and commercial sites advertising products are almost never appropriate! When in doubt, ask.

  • Integrity. All written and oral assignments are expected to be the sole product of the person(s) whose name is attached with complete and accurate attribution of credit for any references to the ideas, quotations, or contributions of others. Academic dishonesty (including but not limited to plagiarism, turning in someone else’s work, and lack of proper citation) is a violation of the Saint Mary’s College Academic Honor Code and will be referred to the Academic Honor Council. For more information on plagiarism or academic dishonesty, see the Academic Policies section of the Student Handbook.
