Required Assignments and Tests
(Note: Copies of all assignments are available on the CST 110 course Canvas site).
The assignments listed below are due on the date noted in the daily schedule that is included with this course syllabus. There is no “late” submission of assignments or “make-up” of tests except under extreme circumstances that are fully discussed with the instructor.
1)Two Exams: (100 points each – total 200 points)
Three objective exams, each representing 100 points, covering information presented in the text and class lectures. Exam review study guides can be found under the “Study Guides” button on the course Canvas site. Tests include 30 multiple choice and 20 true/false questions (50 questions, 2 points each
= 100 points). Students are allotted the class period (1 hour & 15 minutes) to take the test.
2)Interpersonal Relationship short essay/ Discussion Question vis a vi Modern Love: 25points
Using theories of interpersonal communication, students will analyze scenes/ in the film When Harry Met Sally; or, students may choose to answer essay questions provided by the instructor.
3)Am I being human enough : 25 points
A 4- to 6-minute extemporaneous (conversational; with notes) speech on an informative topic selected by the student and approved by the instructor. Important: Not attending class on the scheduled day of a speech will result in a grade of “F” for the speech. In the case of an extreme emergency, the student must contact the instructor via phone or email.
4) Group Presentation: WHMS & TWM A 15- to 20-minute 180 points
Creative small group presentation or chapter presentation designed to inform your audience. The group topic is selected through “brainstorming” by the class. Important: Not attending class on the scheduled day of a group presentation will result in a grade of “F” for the presentation. In the case of an extreme emergency the student must phone/email/text both the instructor and his/her group members.
In order to pass this class, students must complete all of the assignments listed above. Failure to complete any one of these assignments will result in a semester grade of “F.” If an emergency situation results in a missed assignment, the student should immediately contact the instructor to discuss the situation. Possible Points: . Total of 529 points may be adjusted. New assignment may be introduced during the semester, thus altering the point total for the class. Your final numerical grade is calculated by adding the total points earned this semester divided by the total possible points. For example, if you earned 460 total points, you would divide those points 604 possible points. 460/529= 86 According to the chart below an 86% is a B
A= 90- 100
B= 80- 89
C= 70- 79
F= 59 and below
0. Students are expected to behave as adults. Rude, disrespectful behavior to either the instructor or other students, in either the classroom or online, will result in removal from the class with a grade of “F.”
0. I do understand that mental health plays an important role in your ability to do and completed assignments but it can’t be used as an alibi to discard assignments altogether. If you are struggling with mental health issues, it is important that you inform me. Already, there is a generous due date extension of 7 days, for any assignment regardless of your condition. If you need more time, I need to know.
0. All students are expected to check their NOVA email frequently and to be familiar with the course Canvas site. Students can activate their official NOVA email account at https://nvcc.my.vccs.edu/jsp/userconfig.jsp?action=reset .
0. The use of laptops for taking notes is allowed only if the student submits appropriate documentation indicating special needs. The use of flat electronic tablets (i.e. Ipad) is allowed; however, the student must first discuss the matter with the professor and also sit in the front of the classroom. Phones must be put away during class.
0. Students may turn in late assignments ONLY up until a week past the original due date. For example is an assignment is due 1/15/ 2024 a student has up until 1/22/2024to complete the assignment.
Attendance and participation are central to student success in this communication class.
It is important that you understand the following:
1. National accreditation standards require student attendance. The most reasonable excuses will not change the fact that when you are absent you miss not only the content, but also the experience of the class. If you miss more than 25% of class sessions you will not be able to pass the course and will receive an automatic “F,” regardless of the number of points you have accumulated.
1. There may be an occasion where you must miss class and can receive an “excused absence” from me. These would include work, military or medical situations that are explained by official documentation. A court date due to legal violations will not receive an excused absence.
1. It is expected that you will be on time for class and will stay the entire class period.
1. If you find yourself in a position where you might miss significant amounts of class time, or will be late often due to extenuating circumstances, you should consult with me as soon as possible so that we can discuss the situation.

INTRODUCTORY STATEMENT Students are responsible for knowing and following the policies in the Student Handbook. The following are highlights of information that students should be aware of as they begin a course. Academic Integrity Policy Accommodations and Accessibility Services Buy Books with Excess Financial Aid Career Services Closing Information Communication Course Drop/Withdrawal Policy Financial Stability and Advocacy Centers Forms to Request Services and Assistance Accommodations and Accessibility Services: Request for Alternate Format Course grade appeal Enrollment Services: Course Repeat Request Enrollment Services: Enrollment with Permission Financial Aid: Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal Form Parking Services: Vehicle Registration Form Student Grievance Forms Veteran Enrollment Request Form (VERF) Important Dates Spring 2024 Important Dates Spring 2024 Breaks & Holidays Libraries Office of Wellness and Mental Health Prerequisite Verification Statement Remote Student Support Services Student Rights and Responsibilities Student Integrity and Conduct Student Ombuds Services (SOS) TITLE IX Tutoring Spring 2024 2 Academic Integrity Policy NOVA promotes and emphasizes the importance of honesty in academic work. It is therefore imperative for students to maintain the highest standard of honor in their scholastic work. Academic dishonesty, as outlined in more detail in the Academic Integrity Policy (Policy Number: 224), can include, but is not limited to cheating on an exam or quiz, submitting work that is not your own (plagiarism), or sharing assessments online. Consequences of academic dishonesty can include a failing grade on an assignment, a failing grade in the course, and may include additional administrative sanctions such as suspension or expulsion from the college. Procedures for disciplinary measures and appeals are outlined in the Academic Integrity Procedures. It is a student’s responsibility to become familiar with the student code of conduct. Lack of awareness is no excuse for noncompliance with NOVA’s policies and procedures. NOVA Faculty may choose to use tools such as Turnitin to detect and flag instances of plagiarism in academic writing. These tools can also identify text written by artificial intelligence (AI) applications such as ChatGPT and flag it as potential plagiarism. The use of AI to complete assigned work may be considered a violation of the academic integrity policy. Students are urged to be cautious when using any web tools designed to assist with assignments without their instructors’ explicit permission to do so and to cite their sources in all their work. Accommodations and Accessibility Services NOVA is committed to ensuring all students have an opportunity to pursue a college education regardless of the presence or absence of a disability. No academically qualified student with a disability will be denied access to or participation in the services, programs, and activities of the College. Your access to and inclusion in this course is important to NOVA and me. Please request your accommodation letter (Memorandum of Accommodations) early in the semester or as soon as you become registered so that we have adequate time to arrange your approved academic accommodations. Returning students must renew their Memorandum of Accommodations (MOA) every semester; these students should submit the request 24 hours or later after enrolling in at least one class. Allow up to 7 business days for the request to be approved. Accommodations are provided for in-person, online, and remote/synchronous (Zoom) learning. To get started, review NOVA’s Accommodation and Accessibility Services website. Following a meeting with a counselor, you will be issued a Memorandum of Accommodation (MOA). You must provide your MOA to your professors, testing proctor, and/or tutoring center in order to receive your accommodations. You may provide your MOA any time during the semester; however, accommodations are not retroactive. You may email your MOA or provide me with a printed copy. I will send you an email to acknowledge receipt. If I have any questions or if there is anything about your accommodations you wish to explain, we will schedule a meeting outside of class for that purpose. Please remind me of any special arrangements that must be made in advance of tests and assessments. If you need a sign language interpreter, or if you need live captions for your Zoom class, send an email to [email protected]. Buy Books with Excess Financial Aid If your anticipated financial aid is more than what you owe for the semester, you may use your excess aid to purchase books, supplies, or even a laptop through the NOVA Bookstore. Book purchases must occur during the provided disbursement dates every semester. Note that this excess financial aid can only be used to purchase course books (physical and digital) and supplies at the Spring 2024 3 NOVA Bookstore, not from other vendors. Two disbursement periods are available during the fall and spring semesters. Any holds on a student's account regarding a debt to the College must be resolved prior to using financial aid at the bookstore. Career Services The College is committed to providing career services to all students as part of the comprehensive educational journey. Career Services assists students with exploring, developing and setting goals related to each student’s unique educational and academic needs. These services include career assessments, occupational information, goal setting, planning and employment resources. You can request an appointment with a career counselor. Closing Information NOVA announces campus and college closings on the NOVA homepage. You can also receive notification by cell phone or email if you register for NOVA Alert. Also review NOVA’s guidance on emergency closings, delayed openings, and continuation of instruction. If a course is canceled due to a weather event or other unforeseen situation, check the course Canvas site or NOVA email (@email.vccs.edu) as soon as possible for instructions and assignments to avoid falling behind in coursework. You are expected to be up to date with all assignments the next time the class meets. Communication Northern Virginia Community College (NVCC) faculty, staff, and administrators communicate with students through their official NVCC email accounts ([email protected]). Students are likewise required to use their VCCS email accounts ([email protected]) to communicate with instructors and other college personnel. Students should check their email accounts regularly. Course Drop/Withdrawal Policy Please note these important deadlines related to your enrollment in a course: ● Students may drop courses through NOVAConnect until the last day to drop with a tuition refund (census date). Students who drop a class during this period will receive a full refund. ● Requests to change your grade status to audit must also be completed before the last day to drop with a tuition refund (census date). ● Students who do not attend at least one class meeting or participate in an online learning class by the last day to drop with a tuition refund (census date) may be administratively withdrawn from the class. This means that there will be no record of the class or any letter grade on the student’s transcript. The student’s tuition will not be refunded. ● The Last Day to Withdraw is the last day to withdraw from classes without a grade penalty. Students will receive a grade of W. Students may withdraw from a course through NOVAConnect. The student’s tuition will not be refunded. Withdrawing from a course after the census date and before the withdrawal date will result in a “W” grade appearing on your transcript.

Please note that any drops or withdrawals from a course may impact financial aid, international student status, or military benefits.

Prerequisite Verification Statement As noted in the Course Prerequisites Policy, some courses have prerequisite or corequisite requirements that are established to foster a student’s success in the course. Students may not enroll in a course for which they do not meet the prerequisites by the time the course begins or for which they do not simultaneously enroll in any corequisite. Students may be administratively dropped from any course for which they have not met the prerequisite.
