Collaborative Learning in Course Simulations
Unformatted Document Text:  Van Vechten, 22 REQUIRED ASSIGNMENTS NOTE on GRADING: Although it has been clearly stated elsewhere (in the syllabus and in class), be aware that these assignments will be evaluated on both content and form. This means you need to EDIT your work for grammar and spelling BEFORE you submit it. Please do not embarrass yourself by submitting sub-par work containing elementary errors. Be sure to document sources of information, and include a “works cited” or “Bibliography” page. NOTE on PLAGIARISM: Allow me to remind you about the use, or lack of use, of quotation marks and citations. Representing another person’s works, words, extensive phrasing, or ideas without proper attribution is considered plagiarism. Proper attribution entails either using quotation marks and/or including citations (see below). To avoid plagiarism, you must also rephrase ideas substantially if you are to claim them as your own. It goes without saying that downloading from the Internet (or paying someone else to write) whole papers of parts of them and passing them off as your own is considered plagiarism in the “nth” degree. Submitting the same paper in two different classes is also considered cheating because the work is not original when it is recycled for another course. Consistent with the Government Department’s policy, any act of plagiarism or cheating will be rewarded with an automatic "F" in the class and referral to the administration for further punishment. CITATION METHODS for WRITTEN WORK: I prefer the American Political Science Association’s simple method of citing work, which is done by placing the last name of the author in parentheses, followed by a page number, like so: “The question of scope is intrinsic in all concepts of political organization” (Schattschneider, 12). When making vaguer references to ideas supplied by scholars, you may also refer to them by last name and the year of the publication: (Farmer 2002; Eschoo 2004). You can include a formal reference to the whole work in a Works Cited or Bibliography page placed at the end of the paper (however you don’t need to include full cites in a bib for the course books). Careless citations fall into the category of plagiarism and will cost you a portion of your grade. NOTE on FORM: Papers must be typed and double-spaced, 12-point font, 1-inch margins. They should include bibliographic references in a standard style (for example, Chicago or MLA). A hard copy must be handed in, though e-mailed papers may be required for the purposes of sharing documents (wait for instructions). Five pages equals about 1500 words. NOTE on INTERNET USAGE: You will be tempted to hop onto the Internet and do all your work at home. This would be a mistake. While (thankfully) many useful resources are now available on-line through the library, some are not. Therefore, all assignments must include hard-copy library resources, and not just citations accessed on-line. A reminder: be sure to cite your web-based sources by reporting the URL, the date accessed, and the organization or individual who is sponsoring the link.

REQUIRED ASSIGNMENTS
NOTE on GRADING:
Although it has been clearly stated elsewhere (in the syllabus and in class), be aware that
these assignments will be evaluated on both content and form. This means you need to EDIT
your work for grammar and spelling BEFORE you submit it. Please do not embarrass
yourself by submitting sub-par work containing elementary errors. Be sure to document
sources of information, and include a “works cited” or “Bibliography” page.
NOTE on PLAGIARISM: Allow me to remind you about the use, or lack of use, of
quotation marks and citations. Representing another person’s works, words, extensive
phrasing, or ideas without proper attribution is considered plagiarism. Proper attribution
entails either using quotation marks and/or including citations (see below). To avoid
plagiarism, you must also rephrase ideas substantially if you are to claim them as your own.
It goes without saying that downloading from the Internet (or paying someone else to write)
whole papers of parts of them and passing them off as your own is considered plagiarism in
the “nth” degree. Submitting the same paper in two different classes is also considered
cheating because the work is not original when it is recycled for another course. Consistent
with the Government Department’s policy, any act of plagiarism or cheating will be
rewarded with an automatic "F" in the class and referral to the administration for further
punishment.
CITATION METHODS for WRITTEN WORK: I prefer the American Political Science
Association’s simple method of citing work, which is done by placing the last name of the
