Attendance
The TED policy for attendance in the fall and spring semesters allows for two absences. A future teacher must be
present to participate which is part of each week and to support others in their efforts. If you must be absent, please
notify the instructor and ask what can be done to make up this work. Each class missed reduces your total points by
seven. Each tardy will reduce your total points by one each time. Please notify instructor of emergencies and
special events. It is possible to complete a special project for one absence to redeem points.
Research Project
Each future teacher will participate in the Research Project. The elements are identified in your syllabus. Maintain a
section in your Notebook to annotate theorists. Products will be shared in the Final class.
Sanctions for Cheating and/or Plagiarism
Plagiarism is “passing off a source’s information, ideas, or words as one’s own by omitting to

semesters: Student receives a failing grade for the class where the second offense takes
place; the instructor notifies the advisor and the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
• Third offense: The student is expelled from Sierra Nevada College. The instructor
notifies the advisor and the Vice President of Academic Affairs.
