Techniques for Enhancing Civility in the Classroom

Develop a set of classroom rules or policies

  • Be polite to others.
  • Turn your cell phone off or to silent (Do not answer it during class). Ten point deduction from your total grade for each infraction after the first. There will be a cell phone parking lot break half way through each class (Time to check your texts).
  • DO NOT send assignments to the professor via e-mail. They will not be accepted. All assignments must be turned in at the start of class on the day the assignment is due.
  • Arrive on time to class (If you arrive late please sit at the back of the class).
  • LATE ASSIGNMENTS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED (Students are provided with information regarding all out of class assignments at the start of the semester. It is the student’s responsibility to start each assignment early so the assignment can be submitted either prior to the due date or on the due date. It would not be fair to those students who have planned ahead and submitted their assignments on time to accept late assignments.
  • Ask as many questions as you like!
