Welcome to the course guide for PSY355: Psychology of Exceptional Children with Dr. Morin. This guide was designed to help you find books to complete your Exceptionality Paper. In this library session, you will learn how to find appropriate biographies in our library collection and how to borrow books from other libraries using Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad).
Quotes must be cited by page number; long quotes over 40 words should be block indented. A reference is mandatory. You must cite the book and any resources you used such as the textbook or websites in APA format.
Dr. Morin will gladly read drafts and provide feedback and make suggestions. Students who would like feedback on rough drafts of the paper must submit it in hard copy to the professor. Dr. Morin is willing to read one hard draft, but additional revisions should be directed to the Learning Assistance Center.
Note: The following conventions give some writers difficulty; therefore, if you find these types of errors in your writing, seek help from the Learning Assistance Center staff. Additional points will be deducted for these types of errors.
You must use PERSON FIRST LANGUAGE! Students who do not use person first language will lose points on their paper.
Students are required to submit their paper electronically to the folder in the Assignments Tab on D2L and provide a hard copy of the paper to the professor by the due date. The Exceptionality paper is due at the scheduled time class begins and before the professor closes the door of the classroom. LATE PAPERS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!
**Students who do not submit their papers electronically by the deadline (the beginning of class) will lose 20 points automatically.
Students who do not submit BOTH an electronic copy AND a hard copy of the paper to the professor on the due date WILL RECEIVE A ZERO ON THIS ASSIGNMENT.
