course home assignments policies resources

All assignments are governed by the George Mason University honor code. You are expected to work independently and to acknowledge all sources, including assigned texts and materials found online. Consult Gordon Harvey’s “Writing with Sources,” for  instructions on when and how to cite, and ask me if you need clarification. In general, any sentence in your work that can be traced to a single sentence in someone else’s work should bear a footnote. Any collaboration, such as consultation with the Writing Center, should also be acknowledged. Violations of academic integrity will be reported to the administration and may result in grade penalties, including failure of the course.

In case of inclement weather, please call the main switchboard at 703-993-1000 or consult the main web page to see if classes are cancelled. I expect to cancel class only when the university cancels all classes.

If you are a student with a disability and you need academic accommodations, please see me and contact the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at 993-2474.  All academic accommodations must be arranged through the DRC.

All students are expected to check their e-mail regularly and are responsible for information sent to their GMU addresses

Papers will be graded according to my grading standards.
