HCC Grading Scale A = 100- 90 | | 4 points per semester hour | B = 89 - 80: | | 3 points per semester hour | C = 79 - 70: | | 2 points per semester hour | D = 69 - 60: | | 1 point per semester hour | | 59 and below = F | | 0 points per semester hour | | FX (Failure due to non-attendance) | | 0 points per semester hour | | IP (In Progress) | | 0 points per semester hour | | W (Withdrawn) | | 0 points per semester hour | | I (Incomplete) | | 0 points per semester hour | | AUD (Audit) | | 0 points per semester hour | |
IP (In Progress) is given only in certain developmental courses. The student must re-enroll to receive credit. COM (Completed) is given in non-credit and continuing education courses.
FINAL GRADE OF FX: Students who stop attending class and do not withdraw themselves prior to the withdrawal deadline may either be dropped by their professor for excessive absences or be assigned the final grade of "FX" at the end of the semester. Students who stop attending classes will receive a grade of "FX", compared to an earned grade of "F" which is due to poor performance. Logging into a DE course without active participation is seen as non-attending. Please note that HCC will not disperse financial aid funding for students who have never attended class.
Students who receive financial aid but fail to attend class will be reported to the Department of Education and may have to pay back their aid. A grade of "FX" is treated exactly the same as a grade of "F" in terms of GPA, probation, suspension, and satisfactory academic progress.
To compute grade point average (GPA), divide the total grade points by the total number of semester hours attempted. The grades "IP," "COM" and "I" do not affect GPA.
Health Sciences Programs Grading Scales may differ from the approved HCC Grading Scale. For Health Sciences Programs Grading Scales, see the "Program Discipline Requirements" section of the Program's syllabi.

Instructor Grading Criteria: Tentative Grading Profile: This may change due to new Core requirements.
Grading Profile:
3 100 point chapter tests, 1 teamwork assignment 100 points, 1 100 point paper, 1 100 point final exam, optional quizzes ( as per first day discussion ) Total: 600 possible points. Your final grade % equals your points divided by 600. GRADES: Your grade is based on the average of the grades you earn on tests, quizzes, paper, teamwork assignment and your MANDATORY Final Exam. I will also give you an opportunity to earn extra credit. There will be no make-up tests given. Instead, at the end of the semester I will drop your lowest unit test score. This does not include your final exam. If you plagiarize in any way in your paper you will fail the course.

TESTS: You will have four chapter tests during the semester. (Please see the semester calendar for the scheduled dates.) These tests will be comprised of a variety of questions. Questions may include multiple choice, vocabulary, short answer, and essay. These tests will not be cumulative. Your Final Exam is a multiple choice test that is cumulative. We will review for each test.
Your test grades will be determined as follows: # of correct responses / # of questions= % grade. *
Instructional Materials Required: Stokstad, Marilyn. 'Art History', 5th edition, Volume 1, with digital MyArtsLab Custom Access Code card for E-book and peripherals. For my class you do not need MyArtsLab. You just need the text and may use an older edition.

EGLS3 –Evaluation for Greater Learning Student Survey System At Houston Community College, professors believe that thoughtful student feedback is necessary to improve teaching and learning. During a designated time near the end of the term, you will be asked to answer a short online survey of research-based questions related to instruction. The anonymous results of the survey will be made available to your professors and department chairs for continual improvement of instruction. Look for the survey as part of the Houston Community College Student System online near the end of the term.

Official HCC Attendance Policy:
Students are expected to attend classes regularly. Students are responsible for material covered during their absences, and it is the student’s responsibility to consult with instructors for makeup assignments. Class attendance is checked daily by instructors.

Although it is the responsibility of the student to drop a course for non-attendance, the instructor has the authority to drop a student for excessive absences.

A student may be dropped from a course for absenteeism after the student has accumulated absences in excess of 12.5 percent of the hours of instruction (including lecture and laboratory time).
For example:
For a 3 credit lecture class, meeting 3 hours per week (48 hours of instruction), a student may be dropped when their absence exceeds 6 hours)
For a 3 credit lecture/lab class, meeting 6 hours per week (96 hours of instruction, a student may be dropped when their absence exceeds 12 hours)
Administrative drops are at the discretion of the instructor. If you are doing poorly in the class, but you have not contacted your professor to ask for help, and you have not withdrawn by the official withdrawal date, it will result in you receiving a grade of “F” in the course NOTE: LAST DAY FOR STUDENT/ADMINISTRATIVE DROP THIS SEMESTER: 3/24/2015
Course Withdrawals-First Time Freshmen Students-Fall 2007 and Later:
Effective 2007, section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code applies to first-time in college freshman students who enroll in a Texas public institution of higher education in the fall semester of 2007 or thereafter. High school students currently enrolled in HCC Dual Credit and Early College are waived from this requirement until they graduate from high school.

Based on this law, HCC or any other Texas Public institution of higher education may not permit students to drop after the official day of record more than six college level credit courses for unacceptable reasons during their entire undergraduate career.

Course Withdrawals:
Be sure you understand HCC policies about dropping a course. It is the student’s responsibility to withdraw officially from a course and prevent an “F” from appearing on the transcript. If you feel that you cannot complete this course, you will need to withdraw from the course prior to the final date of withdrawal. Before, you withdraw from your course; please take the time to meet with the instructor to discuss why you feel it is necessary to do so. The instructor may be able to provide you with suggestions that would enable you to complete the course. Your success is very important

If you plan on withdrawing from your class, you MUST contact a HCC counselor or your professor prior to withdrawing (dropping) the class for approval and this must be done PRIOR to the withdrawal deadline to receive a “W” on your transcript. **Final withdrawal deadlines vary each semester and/or depending on class length, please visit the online registration calendars, HCC schedule of classes and catalog, any HCC Registration Office, or any HCC counselor to determine class withdrawal deadlines. Remember to allow a 24-hour response time when communicating via email and/or telephone with a professor and/or counselor. Do not submit a request to discuss withdrawal options less than a day before the deadline. If you do not withdraw before the deadline, you will receive the grade that you are making in the class as your final grade

HCC Policy Statement - ADA
Services to Students with Disabilities
Students who require reasonable accommodations for disabilities are encouraged to report to the Disability Support Service Office at (713) 718-5422 to make necessary arrangements. Faculty are only authorized to provide accommodations by the Disability Support Service Office.

HCC Policy Statement: Academic Honesty
A student who is academically dishonest is, by definition, not showing that the coursework has been learned, and that student is claiming an advantage not available to other students. The instructor is responsible for measuring each student's individual achievements and also for ensuring that all students compete on a level playing field. Thus, in our system, the instructor has teaching, grading, and enforcement roles. You are expected to be familiar with the University's Policy on Academic Honesty, found in the catalog. What that means is: If you are charged with an offense, pleading ignorance of the rules will not help you. Students are responsible for conducting themselves with honor and integrity in fulfilling course requirements. Penalties and/or disciplinary proceedings may be initiated by College System officials against a student accused of scholastic dishonesty. “Scholastic dishonesty”: includes, but is not limited to, cheating on a test, plagiarism, and collusion.

Cheating on a test includes:

* Copying from another students’ test paper; * Using materials not authorized by the person giving the test; * Collaborating with another student during a test without authorization; * Knowingly using, buying, selling, stealing, transporting, or soliciting in whole or part the contents of a test that has not been administered; * Bribing another person to obtain a test that is to be administered.

Plagiarism means the appropriation of another’s work and the unacknowledged incorporation of that work in one’s own written work offered for credit.

Collusion mean the unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing written work offered for credit. Possible punishments for academic dishonesty may include a grade of 0 or F in the particular assignment, failure in the course, and/or recommendation for probation or dismissal from the College System. (See the Student Handbook)
Please note that collusion also applies to test taking.
In this class, if you plagiarize in any way in your paper you will fail the course. (Whether or not it is intentional.)
HCC Policy Statements

TARDINESS: I will take roll five minutes after the scheduled start of class. Prior to this we will have informal discussion about the material that we have just covered and the material that we will cover that day. This does not mean that we start class at 8:05, You will be taking notes from the board during this time! Students who arrive after role has been taken will be marked late. Three such tardies will be counted as one absence. While being tardy might be unavoidable once or twice, do not make it a habit. Coming in late invariably causes a disruption and is unfair to your peers and the instructor. If you do arrive late please come in quietly and join class with as little disruption as possible. If you come in late you must see me at the end of class that same day so that I can mark you late and not absent.

Repeat Course Fee
The State of Texas encourages students to complete college without having to repeat failed classes. To increase student success, students who repeat the same course more than twice, are required to pay extra tuition. The purpose of this extra tuition fee is to encourage students to pass their courses and to graduate. Effective fall 2006, HCC will charge a higher tuition rate to students registering the third or subsequent time for a course. If you are considering course withdrawal because you are not earning passing grades, confer with your instructor/counselor as early as possible about your study habits, reading and writing homework, test taking skills, attendance, course participation, and opportunities for tutoring or other assistance that might be available.

Classroom Behavior
As your instructor and as a student in this class, it is our shared responsibility to develop and maintain a positive learning environment for everyone. Your instructor takes this responsibility very seriously and will inform members of the class if their behavior makes it difficult for him/her to carry out this task. As a fellow learner, you are asked to respect the learning needs of your classmates and assist your instructor achieve this critical goal.
ALL CELLULAR PHONES MUST BE TURNED OFF IN THE CLASSROOM!!!!!!!!
Exceptions to this rule will only be made for people “on call” and parents of young children. Proof is required.
Children in the Classroom: The following is from the College Guidelines. "The college system does not allow children into the collegiate educational process. ...the purpose of students being here is to be educated. The presence of children is not appropriate in this situation." There will be no exceptions to this rule.
Students will not be allowed to bring children into the classroom, nor will they be allowed to bring visitors or friends to class with them. *

Use of Camera and/or Recording Devices

As a student active in the learning community of this course, it is your responsibility to be respectful of the learning atmosphere in your classroom. To show respect of your fellow students and instructor, please turn off your phone and other electronic devices, and do not use these devices in the classroom unless you receive permission from the instructor.

The use of recording devices, including camera phones and tape recorders, is prohibited in classrooms, laboratories, faculty offices, and other locations where instruction, tutoring, or testing occurs. Students with disabilities who need to use a recording device as a reasonable accommodation should contact the Office for Students with Disabilities for information regarding reasonable accommodations

* EXTRA CREDIT: This is worth 2 points to your semester average and will not be discussed in class. You will only know about this if you have read your syllabus! Go to the Menil Collection or the MFAH and select two pieces from a time period and culture that we have learned about this semester. This must be done from the museum that you did not use for your written assignment. Write a brief visual description of each piece. If your pieces are from the Menil, you must staple the gray pamphlet to your paper, if from the MFAH, put on the entrance sticker. If this is not included, you will not receive credit!

Opposing opinions / Self Debate Art History 1 Arts 1303
Core Components addressed: Social Responsibility / Critical Thinking / part of Written Communication. You will also be conducting research for this assignment.
100 points
Length: 1000 words minimum of essay – this does not include Critical Thinking outline questions nor Analysis/ Evaluation/ Synthesis answers. You must include the word count at the end of your essay and remember that this does not include your outline questions nor your summary of how outline questions were examined from both points of view.

Your Essay will be in MLA Format. Typed double spaced Times New Roman 12 point font. Please remember that any plagiarism in this course will result in an “F” for the semester whether it is intentional or not. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! You must site your sources correctly! Do not forget the plagiarism statement in your syllabus and our discussion at the beginning of the semester!
For this assignment you will select a topic that could be considered controversial or viewed very differently by different people in society. Your topic must relate to visual art from our time period of study. You will begin the essay portion by giving a thorough explanation of the topic / issue and will then write two opposing views on this issue. Your paper will then conclude with a personal conclusion about this issue and how both sides of the argument affected your conclusion. You do not have to reach a conclusion that one argument is superior to the other (wouldn’t that show a lack of understanding both sides?) but you must justify your conclusion.
Step one: Learn about your topic
Step two: Write outline of Critical Thinking & Social Responsibility questions (refer to rubrics)
Body of Paper: Step three: write introduction to topic Step four: write first argument / position Step five: write second argument / position Step six: final conclusion / personal conclusion/ synthesis of information Step seven: works cited / bibliography page in MLA format as per class discussion Step eight: Handwritten plagiarism statement
Step nine: Analysis/ Evaluation/ Synthesis of information –summary of how Outline of Critical thinking Questions were answered / addressed (refer to rubric) It is possible that you may wind up with a set of original questions and a slightly different set of final questions that have resulted from your learning/research but in that case you will need to explain why they have changed. Be very careful in this scenario and be sure to completely provide your analysis and rational for this change.
Steps 3-7 are the portion that must be in MLA format and a minimum of 1000 words
All steps apply to the Written Communication Rubric for this semester. If your grammar is so bad that I cannot understand your argument you will fail this assignment.
You will be given copies of rubrics for Social Responsibility, Critical Thinking, and Communication. The written part of the Communication rubric applies to this assignment. Other portions of that rubric apply to your teamwork project as does some of your required writing for the semester.
DO NOT PLAGIARIZE Please remember our discussion at the beginning of the semester. If you plagiarize you will fail the semester. It does not matter if it was intentional or a “mistake”. You must include the following statement on a separate sheet and attach the page to the end of your paper. The statement must be handwritten, not typed, and must be signed. Points will be taken off for not following this procedure.
Statement: “I have read the college policy on scholastic dishonesty and the policy on my syllabus. I understand this policy and I understand that if I have plagiarized in my paper that I will fail this course.” I strongly encourage you to make a check list to make sure that you have completed the minimum requirements to pass. Remember that this is to pass, not the requirements to write an exceptional paper. (Refer back to the college grading system.)
Turn in format: Staple all pages together in the upper left hand corner.

Teamwork Assignment Art History 1, ARTS 1303
For this assignment students will teach the rest of the class a chapter from our textbook and will work as a unified team to accomplish this goal. You will either select a chapter to teach or will be assigned to one. I suggest selecting one ASAP so that you will be focusing on a subject area that is already interesting to you. You may sign up for a team the first day of the semester! (There will be numerical limits to team members so that each chapter is covered.) Your team will create a visual and oral presentation that you will present to the class. There will also be a written component. Students will have one class period to work on this and to decide their plan of action and the rest of the work will be done outside of class.
Once you sign up with or are assigned to a team you may not change teams.
As you work on this assignment make sure that you refer to the Teamwork rubric.
You will be participating in the grading of your teammates so keep a record of their and your contributions to the project.
The students in your group will also be the ones that you will contact if you have missed class and need to know what was covered the day that you were absent. Your team is creating an intimate learning environment and you must be an active participant. Do not be a freeloader and remember that they will be participating in your grade on this assignment. (Again, see system rubric) Group # | Chapter # | Subject | 1 | 9 | Islamic Art | 2 | 10 (Indus Valley, Buddhist and Hindu Art) | South & Southeast Asia(Indian subcontinent) | 3 | 11 | Chinese & Korean Art | 4 | 12 | Japanese Art | 5 | 13 | The Americas before 1300 |
African Art is also part of this unit but your Instructor will teach that so that we can be sure to stay on schedule.
Format:
Length: 45 minutes : includes set up, handouts, any quizzes etc. Visual format: slideshow-style presentation (PowerPoint/ PDF/Google docs) You may also use video clips etc. but they should not interfere with the flow of your presentation.
The vast majority of slides should have images of artworks and/or maps with basic text information.
Text only slides should only be used for introduction, summary & important vocabulary that is new to classmates. Perhaps a study/ review sheet might be more helpful? Oral format: all group members must speak for a minimum of 4 minutes. Students MUST: paraphrase information from the textbook, memorize your presentations or use note cards (4 x 6 in. max.) as guides for speech
Students MAY NOT: copy information directly from the textbook onto note cards (unless it is for basic identification of a work or if a specific term needs to be defined.), use their textbooks during the presentation, or use any other type of notes/books during their presentations. ( other than their 4”x 6” or smaller note cards.)
Content:
Introduction: give the class background information about your chapter I will give your group a list of artworks that must be covered and your group will then select additional works to discuss. These additional works may be from your text as well as relevant images that are not in your text. Superior presentations will include artworks that are not included in our text. However, don’t go overboard and lose the context of your presentation.
Presentation:
Introduce yourselves to the class Speak slowly, loud and clear Learn pronunciation of foreign words in advance of your presentation Direct your speech and attention to the class, NOT to the computer screen Dress appropriately and professionally

*****Your team’s entire digital presentation must be given to the instructor for Assessment and must include files of any study sheets etc. This is for System wide assessment as is required by the state of Texas.

Fear of Heights

...The Climb I have this fear. It causes my legs to shake. I break out in a cold sweat. My heart starts beating a thousand miles an hour, and louder than a snare drum. I imagine my own funeral, then shrink back at the implications of where my thoughts are taking me. My stomach feels tight. My palms are clammy. I am terrified of heights. Of course, it’s not really a fear of being in a high place. Rather, it is the view of a long way to fall, of rocks far below me and no firm wall between me and the edge. Despite my fear, two months ago I somehow found myself climbing to a high place, while quaking inside and out. The ninth and tenth grade class had come along on a week long trip to Washington D.C. A place filled with so much history and culture. Our first stop on the trip was Gettysburg Pennsylvania. We were on the site looking at the battlefield where thousands of soldiers died in the most deadly battle of the Civil War. It was a chilling experience, standing in the place where so many deaths occured. We took the van around the battlefield, stopping every once in awhile, getting out, and checking out some of the main attractions of the battlefield. After eating our sack lunches within sight and sound of the spring, many of us wanted to make the climb up to a view tower that showed almost the entire battlefield from one spot.

...holiday?". What do you think?”. “Just what we expected”, laughs Jack. “I‘ll see you in a moment“. I walk into the pub and wait at the bar. It’s quite empty in here. There are posters for a band on the wall, who go by the name of The Tonics, a four piece in sharp suits with floppy haircuts, who I decide might be worth checking out later. In a few moments, I’m served, with an ice cold pint of Peroni, and am heading back out onto the street. RINGING IN MY EARS is the unmistakable sound of Hammond organ, which sends a shiver down my back and a buzz into my heart and tells me that the magic carpet ride has just begun. Jack turns, as I rejoin them. “Good time in Ibiza, was it?”, he asks. “Marvellous“. “It’s alright for some”, he says. “Jetting off somewhere hot. Well, you’re looking well on it, I have to say”. “Nice of you to say so”. “Bring me back a tan like that next time you go”. “I’ll see what I can do”. We laugh. It's warm tonight. For England. I stand and sip my lager and survey the scene. Girls are standing, alone and in groups, boys are leaning against the wall, gangs are hanging round, looking for something to take their attention. Some of them are talking on their mobile phones, others are texting. “So what’s been happening here?”,I ask. "You've not missed a lot, if I'm honest. There have been a few parties. Nothing to write home about". "Whose parties?". "A couple of birds had one. Then some bloke who comes in here. They were all right. But tonight......

In this video, what I’m going to do is I’m going to go over a copy-and-paste campaign that has made me tens of thousands of dollars this year 2012. It’s in a niche that I was not very familiar with – fashion. I’m sure everyone watching this video right now, you’ve seen all sorts of these daily deal sites like Groupon and LivingSocial, etc. coming out. One big thing is daily deal fashion sites. This site, BeyondTheRack.com, is a daily deal fashion site. When I send people to this website right here through my own ads on any social network – PlentyofFish, Facebook, Pinterest or whatever – and they fill out a couple of fields and hit SEE TODAY’S DEALS, boom! I get paid around $3.60 every time that happens. Our goal in this copy paste tutorial is to show you how to target this site to bulls’ eye targeted customers on Facebook and other social networks so you can start generating customers and getting paid however much the CPA, the payout for the offer is. Keep in mind that you can also take everything we do in this video and you can use this same formula to market other fashion websites. I know absolutely nothing about fashion but I do know how to find people that are interested in it. As a marketer, what’s important for us is just knowing who wants what.

When she heard a little roar from a Siberian tiger, just like her. “Who are you?” asked the stirpped Siberian tiger. “Well, I am Ayla! I’m a siberian tiger! Who are you?” happily replied Ayla. “I’m Shia, but if you are a Siberian tiger, why don’t you look like me?” questioned Shia. “I’m not sure. I was just born this way,” said Ayla. “You can’t be a siberian tiger! You don’t look like me and the rest of the Siberian tigers here in the Sikhote Alin Mountains,” Shia said. “I just look different. I’m happy I don’t look like the rest of the Siberian tigers here. That is what makes me unique,” said Ayla. Shia ignored what Ayla had to say and just walked away laughing and roared, “She thinks she is a Siberian tiger like the rest of us. She is a liar! Ha!” Ayla turned around and walked home gloomily. She went over by the pond by Mama. “Why such a long face?” asked Mama. “Some tiger named ‘Shia’ was making fun of me and the way I look. “She said that I’m not a Siberian tiger just because I don’t look like her and they rest of the Siberian tigers around here,” replied Ayla.
