Attendance at all classes is mandatory. Students arriving late or unprepared will be barred from that class, which will impact upon their continuous assessment grade. Students must provide a legitimate, acceptable and documented excuse for missing a scheduled exam. There will be a make-up exam if students miss the midterm. Make-up exams could be in a different format than midterm or final exam. Late paper submission results in losing ten points. Students are expected to treat university personnel and one another respectfully at all times; this includes showing respect for class content and for others’ opinions. The commitment of acts of cheating, lying, and deceit in any of their diverse forms such as plagiarism, and copying during examinations is dishonest and will not be tolerated. Academic dishonesty and plagiarism: YÖK Disciplinary Regulation. Requirements & Expectations *It is essential for you to do the assigned reading before class; so that we would not waste our time by getting you acquainted with the terminology of that reading. *You are expected to come to class on time, please be considerate about punctuality. After 10 minutes, you will not be accepted in the classroom. *Exams: You are responsible for all the materials discussed in the class together with the assigned chapters from the book.

I will explain them in class but not respond to emails about content and schedule that I explained in class. *I will go over my email policy in the first class, too. *This class also aims to develop the skills of empathy and non-judgmentality. It is important that we are aware of the way we approach each other. Insulting each other is not acceptable. We will all do our best to not react in judgmental ways. Academic Dishonesty Policy: You are strongly advised to follow an ethical code of conduct and not to get involved in any form of unethical behavior. It includes, but is not limited to cheating in exams, plagiarism*, and signing up attendance sheet as present while one is absent in the class. All unethical behavior whether it is minor or major is subject to disciplinary inquiry and penalty. *Plagiarism: it means presenting somebody else’s work/creative accomplishments as if it was yours without giving credit to the source you had taken it. The penalty for plagiarism other than the disciplinary action is to fail the course. Below, there are some good examples of plagiarism, and it provides you a feedback about how to avoid it. http://www.valdosta.edu/~cbarnbau/personal/teaching_MISC/plagiarism.htm
