INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY
Fall Semester 2019

(1) What is a SYLLABUS and Why is it necessary?

 
All college and university courses are required to utilize a written course Syllabus.  A Syllabus can be described as an operations manual, or a set of "how to" instructions detailing standardized policies, standards
and procedures for all courses offered by Tulsa Community College. You are responsible for the requirements outlined in the Syllabus.

You are also responsible for addressing any concerns that you may have regarding the requirements of the Syllabus as soon as your concerns are realized. You should submit a written action plan mitigating the impact of your concerns.  Once approved, the action plan will be an amendment to the original Syllabus.  

I reserve the right to amend the syllabus and the class assignment schedule at any time during the semester. In the event of a change to the syllabus, you will be notified by email and announcements made in-class.

(13) STUDENT-REGULATED LEARNING COMMUNITY

TCC students represent a rich variety of backgrounds and perspectives. TCC Faculty are committed to providing an atmosphere for learning that respects diversity and promotes inclusion. That commitment will be manifested through the creation of a student-centered learning community in this class. A student-centered learning pedagogy encourages you to become an active participant in your college education rather than becoming a passive receiver of information which may your past experience. It is your responsibility to actively participate in your student-centered learning community both in and out of class.  While working together in a student-centered learning community, you are asked to:
  1. Take responsibility for your education through active participation
  2. Share unique experiences, values and beliefs
  3. Be open to the views of others
  4. Honor the uniqueness of your colleagues
  5. Appreciate the opportunity that we should learn from each other in this class
  6. Value each other’s opinions and communicate in a respectful manner
  7. Be respectful of discussions in class
  8. Create a safe learning environment

Benefits of collaborative learning include:

  1. You can become friends or acquaintances in class which tends to reduce the social barriers of novelty.
  2. Your attendance should be consistent with few, if any, absences
  3. Your grades should improve
  4. Study groups are fostered outside the classroom
  5. You should become a more active participant in your educational experience

Beginning the first day of class and at the beginning of most class periods throughout the semester, you should greet and interact your fellow classmates. You should learn basic social facts about your classmates as well as share those personal facts that you determine may contribute to the rich social fabric of a well-formed student-centered learning community. 

(14) CONCURRENT STUDENTS: write new section.

(15) MY BELIEFS REGARDING SUCCESS IN THIS CLASS


Fear, apprehension, isolation, fatigue and lack of focus in class may negatively affect your ability to hear, listen, remember, memorize. This class is uniquely  designed to reduce or eliminate most normal social barriers inherent in new and/or different social situations in order to build a successful learning community. You should not let your personal biases diminish your success in this course. Based upon years of teaching at seven colleges and universities in Oklahoma and success as an entrepreneur in the private sector, it is my opinion that successful achievement in this class, in college, and in life is directly correlated with motivation, attitude and perspective. Whether you simply seek a score or grade in this class or whether you want to learn and become well-educated, the study of Sociology can create personal and social value and help you succeed in college or in a professional occupation. You should demonstrate a positive attitude and passion for your daily actions to be academically competent. Your educational experience may have been one in which you were "pushed" by your parents, teachers, or other significant others to become academically successful. However, in college, the quality and success of your educational experience is up to you through your daily choices. College is like an academic buffeteria in which you have the option of taking part of an exciting and diverse course curriculum or choosing to participate very little or none. The choice is up to you. The concepts taught in this class are designed to help you become more self-directed and socially successful.

(16) DEADLINES AND PRESENTATIONS

It is advised that should an unforeseeable problem occur (that could interfere with your class performance), please notify me ASAP so that we may address your concerns through a collaborative written action plan that will serve as an amendment to your Syllabus.

The material accompanying the text and handouts should always be treated as required reading and may be included in the class discussion and well as class projects, quizzes and exams. You are responsible for all assigned text reading, as well as all the information that is discussed or otherwise included in class. You should constantly be aware of all class assignments, presentations and exam dates that are listed in the accompanying course calendar without my reminding you. You are expected to be prepared (completed assigned readings) to discuss pertinent topics each class period as scheduled. If you attend class unprepared, you should expect your grade to be negatively affected as a result.

All assignments are to be turned in at the beginning of class on the date due unless otherwise instructed. Any assignment handed in late on the date due may receive no credit unless prior arrangements have been made with me. There are no exceptions. This policy means that there are no excuses such as sickness, no printer cartridge, computer error, illness, funerals, flat tire, no parking place, etc. Excuses are not acceptable reasons to miss required tests and assignments because you may always submit assignments or take exams earlier than required if approved in writing by me.

C: Earned by work that indicates an adequate and satisfactory, comprehension of the course material and the skills needed to work with the course material and indicates the student has met basic requirements for completing assigned work and participating in class activities.
D: Earned by work that is unsatisfactory but that indicates some minimal command of the course materials and some minimal participation in class activities that is worthy of course credit.
F: Earned by work that is unsatisfactory and unworthy of course credit. 

THERE IS NOTHING MORE STRESSFUL THAN BEING HELD ESPONSIBLE FOR SOMETHING NOT IN YOUR CONTROL  (STUDENT RESPONSIBILITY):
Your input is welcomed and encouraged in this class. It is also advised that should an unforeseeable problem (that could interfere with class performance) occur; notify me ASAP so that alternate arrangements may be made. The material accompanying the text and handouts should be treated as mandatory reading and will be included in the class discussion and exams. You are, therefore, responsible for all assigned text reading, as well as all the information that is discussed or otherwise included in class. You should be aware of all assignments, presentations, and exam dates that are listed in the COURSE CALENDAR at the end of the syllabus without reminders from me. You are expected to be prepared (completed assigned readings) to discuss pertinent topics each class session as scheduled. If you attend class unprepared, you should expect your grades to be negatively affected as a result. All assignments are to be turned in at the beginning of class on the date due unless otherwise instructed. Any assignment handed in late on the date due will receive reduced or no credit. There are no exceptions. Again, this means sickness, no printer cartridge, computer error, illness, funerals, flat tire, no parking place etc. are not acceptable excuses for ignoring assignments.

(21) ATTENDANCE/PARTICIPATION:

Re-write

Regular class attendance is required to be successful in this course. If you accumulate four or more unexcused absences or six excused and unexcused absences, your final grade may be reduced a minimum of one-letter grade OR MORE or you may be administratively withdrawn from the course.

If you are going to be absent from class, you may obtain an excused absence by emailing me prior to the beginning of class on the day your absence with an explanation for your absence. If the submission of your email request for an excused absence is submitted after class begins, your absence will be recorded as an unexcused absence.  There are no exceptions.  If there is an emergency which necessitates an email after the absence, please send your email ASAP.  

LATE ARRIVAL


You should be seated when class begins. If you find they are unable to arrive in class on time, please discuss your arrival conflict with me. If you are late to class on multiple occasion, you may be asked not to enter the classroom unless you can arrive on time. In addition, three times tardy will be recorded as an unexcused absence.  You are responsible for your commitments to Tulsa Community College.

(22) TIME COMMITMENT


INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY is a three-credit hour course. Studies indicate that, on average, for every hour of course credit, you should expect to spend as much as two hours of outside time on course work per week i.e., reading, homework, discussion, studying etc. For this course, that means a minimum of six hours of outside time per week. Some may spend more, depending on their level of expertise.

(23) CELL PHONES/TEXTING/WORKING ON OTHER CLASS ASSIGNMENTS, BROWSING THE INTERNET OR PLAYING GAMES ON A LAPTOP COMPUTER

DON’T DO IT - Please be a responsible and respectful student in this course.  Those students who fail to comply with this requirement will be asked to leave the class. 

(24) ANNOUNCEMENTS


There may be announcements about procedures or assignments made in this class or posted on the TCC Course website or distributed through a course group email.

(25) LATE ASSIGNMENTS AND MAKE-UP WORK


The score for late assignments may be reduced by a letter grade unless the late assignment is approved by me accepted by discussing the reason for a late assignment with me prior to the due date.

(26) COURSE WITHDRAWAL


See 
Course Enrollment and Withdrawal for information on withdrawing from a course. You may be Administratively Withdrawn for excessive unexcused absences. If you determine that they will not be completing the course, it is your responsibility to officially withdraw from the course through Admission/Registrar's office. After the withdrawal deadline, you will receive the grade earned based on completed work for the semester. Failure to follow this procedure may result yours receiving a regular grade of "F" at the end of the semester.

You should begin the process of withdrawal with a discussion with me. Withdrawal after the drop/add period can alter the financial aid award for the current and future semesters. You may receive an outstanding bill from TCC if the recalculation leaves a balance due to TCC. If you who stop participating in the course and fail to officially withdraw from this course, you may experience financial aid consequences.

PROCEDURES FOR WITHDRAWAL

 
If you are thinking about withdrawal from this course, talk with me. There may be other options open to you besides withdrawal. It is strongly advised that you discuss your situation with me before you decide to withdraw from a course. My preference is for you to perform well academically, complete the course and to learn the fundamentals of Introduction to Sociology.

FAILURE TO WITHDRAW POLICY


Do not allow the difficulties of a situation to exert a negative effect on an academic transcript.
 Be responsible, attentive, and proactive. AN "AW" WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED FOR STUDENTS WHO FAIL TO EXERCISE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

(27) INCLEMENT WEATHER AND CLASS CANCELLATION POLICY


When severe winter weather hits, you may assume that TCC will be open for classes unless there is an announcement on television and radio stations. TCC does not automatically close if Tulsa Public Schools close. The best way to be informed on weather and other emergencies is to register for TCC Alerts. 

If this class is cancelled, an email will be sent to you before the class is scheduled to meet. It is always a prudent idea to check your email before coming to class for various announcements; especially if you have a significant drive to campus.  Please note; if class is being held as scheduled you are responsible for any assignments that are due by emailing your assignment to me before class would ordinarily begin. There may not be an opportunity to make up missed assignments.

(28) DISABILITY RESOURCES

 
It is the policy and practice of Tulsa Community College to create inclusive learning environments. Accommodations for qualifying students in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act are available.

(29) ACADEMIC DISHONESTY

RE-WRITE 
Academic Integrity is a foundational value of TCC.  You are expected to behave as a responsible member of the college community and to be honest and ethical in your academic work. The Academic Integrity link provides access to guidelines for academic integrity, as well as forms of academic dishonesty.

Academic dishonesty (cheating) is defined as the deception of others about one’s own work or about the work of another. Academic dishonesty or misconduct is not condoned nor tolerated at campuses within the Tulsa Community College system. Academic dishonesty is behavior in which a deliberately fraudulent misrepresentation is employed to gain underserved intellectual credit, either for oneself or for another. Academic misconduct is behavior that results in intellectual advantage obtained by violating specific standard, but without deliberate intent or use of fraudulent means. Tulsa Community College adopts a policy delegating certain forms of authority for disciplinary action to the faculty. Such disciplinary actions delegated to the faculty include, but are not limited to, the dismissal of disrespectful or disorderly students from classes. In the case of academic dishonesty, a faculty member may:

  • Require the student to redo an assignment or test, or require the student to complete a substitute assignment or test;

  • Record a "zero" for the assignment or test in question;

  • Recommend to the student that the student withdraw from the class, or administratively withdraw the student from the class;

  • Record a grade of "F" for the student at the end of the semester.

Faculty may request that disciplinary action be taken against a student at the administrative level by submitting such request to the Dean of Student Services.

(30) COMPUTER SERVICES


Access to computing resources is a privilege granted to all TCC faculty, staff, and students. Use of TCC computing resources is limited to purposes related to the College’s mission of education, research, and community service. Your use of technology is governed by the Computer Services Acceptable Use Statements/Standards found in the TCC Student Code of Conduct Policy Handbook. These handbooks may be obtained by contacting any Student Activities or Dean of Student Services office. 

(31) LIBRARY
The West Campus Library is located on the 2nd Floor of the Information Commons Building. The Library can also be accessed online at
http://library.tulsacc.edu/home.

(32) READING AND WRITING CENTER
You may find help with reading, writing, and study skills by visiting the Reading and Writing Center located in the Technology Learning Center I-116, in the Information Commons building. It is preferable to call for an appointment. This is an excellent service offered to you free of charge. It is highly recommended that you take advantage of the exceptional staff and their services to meet the many demands necessary to succeed in college classes.

(33) ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: 
You are responsible for being aware of the information contained in the 
TCC Catalog, the Student Handbook, and the Academic Calendar. All information may be viewed on the TCC website.

(34) SYLLABUS CHANGE: 
Occasionally, changes to the syllabus may be necessary. You will be notified of any changes to the syllabus by email and class announcements.

(35) SYLLABUS ATTACHMENT: 
The 
Syllabus Attachment provides critical student information for all TCC courses and is considered to be a part of this syllabus. You are responsible for reading the statements contained within.
