For Possible Cancellations (due to inclement weather):
Students will be responsible for giving an oral presentation and preparing a research paper on topics of the student?s choice. The oral presentation should introduce the topic, identify issues and/or conflicting perspectives, summarize applicable policy and programs, and discuss conclusions. Creativity in the format of the presentation is encouraged. The paper (8-10 pages) should demonstrate a thorough understanding of a coastal management issue, and the ability to communicate the information. Further guidance will be provided in class.
The topics for the oral presentation and the research paper must be submitted in advance for review and approval by the instructor. Each should be in the form of a brief paragraph identifying the topic and the key issues.
Attendance and Class Participation:
The course will require attendence and your performance in class will be evaluated. Class attendance and participation will therefore comprise a portion of your final grade. If you cannot attend class and have a good reason, you should notify the instructor(s).
Academic honesty requires, but is not limited to the following: (1) appropriately citing all published and unpublished sources, whether quoted, paraphrased, or expressed otherwise in all of the student's oral and written work; (2) completing your own work.
Plagiarism occurs when someone claims as their own the ideas, literal works or paraphrased works of another. These works may or may not be published. The minimum penalty for plagiarism will be a 0 on your paper. Cheating is 1) attempting to present as your own work that you have not performed or 2) using improper means to pass an examination. The minimum penalty for cheating on an exam is a 0 for a score. Students should also be aware that academic dishonesty includes stealing, copying, or destroying another person's work (in our case exams or papers); and/or theft or unauthorized removal of books or reserved readings from the library.
