None. All students will be required to complete various assignments that require research on current topics, access to the internet, and the ability to use www.mylamarpa.edu
In the case of absence, students are required to obtain course materials from a classmate or from the instructor during office hours.
Attendance Policy: Research has shown a cause and effect relationship between attendance and college success. Absences may be excused by notifying the instructor in advance by e-mail. There is a participation grade that can only be earned through attendance and participation. Two unexcused absences in a row or a total of four unexcused absences may result in an instructor drop.
Make-up Assignments: Students must meet with the instructor and schedule any make-up assignment immediately on returning to class from an excused absence for partial credit.
|Course Grading Scale||90 - 100 = A 80 - 89 = B 70 - 79 = C 60 - 69 = D Below 59 = F|
|Determination of Final Grade||A point value will be given to each assignment throughout the semester. A student’s final grade will be determined by using their total points earned of the total points possible, and the percentage will be used with a standard grading scale. The Additional Course Information Handout will provide detailed information on assignments and point totals.|
|Final Exam Date||December 5, 2013 - 11:00 AM|
Daily participation includes appropriate dress (as detailed on course syllabus), adhering to all course and instructor policies, tardiness, attending the entire class period, participating in all activities and discussions, preparing for class, and showing appropriate classroom behavior.
The student will research the web to find a video clip of a modified or non-traditional sport or game. The student will present this video clip and give a detailed over-view of their topic to the class in an oral presentation. (5-10 minutes)
The student will do research on an adaptive or modified game. This must be a different topic than the technology assignment. The student will prepare an oral presentation, a student handout, and a work-sheet. (8-12 minutes)
Practice Teaching Assignment:
The student will develop a lesson on a non-traditional sport, cooperative game, creative activity, or an adapted/modified physical activity. The student must have the topic approved by the instructor; provide necessary equipment (check with instructor to see what is available), prepare a detailed lesson plan, teach the lesson to their peers, and provide at least one modification. The instructor will consider the following when assigning a grade: Creativity, planning, detail of lesson plan, instructional methods, teaching cues, and delivery of the lesson. (20-25 minutes)
The student will choose a topic related to the course and obtain instructor approval. The assignment will consist of a 2-3 page paper using 2-3 sources. Approved format: Times New Roman, 12pt., double spaced. The sources should be printed or copied and turned in with the assignment. A reference page is not required, but sources should be cited in the paper. The student will give an oral presentation (5 minutes) on their research project.
The instructor will use information gathered from a course knowledge post-test and the student's portfolio as well as a "non-traditional” final exam to determine the grade for the assignment. The Final will be used to determine knowledge gained throughout the semester and will be a portion of the student’s total points.

Some material in this course may be copyrighted. They may be used only for instructional purposes this semester,
by students enrolled in this course. These materials are being used fairly and legally.
No one may distribute or share these copyrighted materials in any medium or format with anyone outside this class,
including publishing essays with copyrighted material, uploading copyrighted material to Facebook or YouTube, or
painting or performing copyrighted material for public display.
Copyright violation is not the same thing as plagiarism. Plagiarism is intellectual dishonesty. Offenses of plagiarism result in lower grades or failing scores, and professors and the college strictly enforce plagiarism rules. There is never any acceptable use of plagiarism. Copyright violation is a legal offense, punishable by large fines and penalties.
Copyrighted material can be used if permission from the material’s creator is obtained, or if its use meets the standards of fair use in an educational setting. For example, a student can quote a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a report without violating copyright but still be guilty of plagiarism if the quotation is not properly documented.
If you are in doubt about what material can be freely used, ask your professor or contact the Dean of Library Services, at (409) 984-6216.
Assessment is a process by which LSCPA can help you learn better and gauge the level of progress you have made to
attain knowledge, skills, beliefs, and values. It also helps your professors understand how to improve teaching
and testing methods in your classes, and it helps each department understand and improve degree and certificate
Periodically LSC-PA will collect assessment data for research and reporting purposes, including statistical data and sometimes copies of your work. Be assured that all material the college uses for assessment purposes will be kept confidential. To ensure anonymity, your name will be removed from any material we use for assessment purposes, including video-recorded performances, speeches, and projects.
If you object to allowing LSC-PA to use your material for assessment purposes, submit a letter stating so to your professor by the 12th class day. You will still be required to participate in whatever assessments are being done; we just won’t use your data.
What’s the difference between assessment and grades? The grades you get on papers, projects, speeches, and assignments are specific types of focused assessment. LSC-PA’s assessment efforts include class grades, surveys, standardized tests, and other tools.
Federal privacy laws apply to college students. This means that college employees, including instructors, cannot
divulge information to third parties, including parents and legal guardians of students. Even if the students are
minors, information about their college work cannot be shared with anyone except in very limited circumstances.
Anyone requesting information about a student should be referred to the Registrar. Instructors will be notified in writing by that Office about what information may be released and to whom.
Please remember that releasing private information about a student, however innocuous it may seem, can be a violation of federal law, with very serious consequences.
Circumstances under which information may be released:
An adult student may submit, to the Registrar, a handwritten, signed note granting permission for release of
information. The note must specify what information may be divulged, and it must specify the name of the person
to whom the information may be given.
The Registrar’s office is located in the Student Center room 303B, and can be reached at (409) 984-6165.
This course helps add to the students’ overall collegiate experience in the following ways:
|Degree Plan Evaluation||
A Degree Plan Evaluation will help you determine which classes you need to complete your program.
All of the classes that you have taken that apply to your declared major will be listed on the right. If you have a class that still needs to be completed, a “NO” will be listed on the right next to the required class.
