Class Project = Term Paper & Presentation
Your final term paper and presentation are due towards the end of the semester.
s2017 Informal Project Statement, or Project Proposal (up to 20 points) The informal statement can be very straightforward. It's a simple statement of . . . "Here's what I'm interested in doing. . . . Here's why I'm interested in that. . . . Here's what I think will be useful for that project. . . . What do you think?" Or, it can be something like . . . "I'm thinking about doing a project on X or Y, but can't make up my mind. Here's what I'm interested in, and why. . . . Here are some things that look like they might be useful for the project. . . . What do you think?" A more formal statement (a "Promissory Abstract") of what you eventually decide upon isn't due for another two weeks.

Your CE Term Paper is due at the end of Week 14, Saturday, 22 April 2017
You will be given reminders during the semester.
Start from day one to brainstorm and explore ideas for your term paper. You should begin by listing your ideas in this Wiki. Please list your name, and potential topics that you may be interested in as your final term paper and presentation. We are using a wiki so that you can also see your peers ideas. This is so that you can get motivation, inspiration from each other. You may also ask your classmates, if you can select one of their topics/ideas. The goal is for you to select a topic that truly interests you, where you will have genuine curiosity to find out more information regarding that topic.
Every student will write and submit their own term paper. If appropriate, you may collaborate with others for your presentations. Everyone will be required to present their papers, whether collaborating in a group or individually.
Please see the example below for the format in which you should contribute in this wiki.
How to use the Wiki:
** Please be sure to follow the format, and be careful not to delete others' content. You can write beneath someone else's ideas asking them for permission or simply use the other collaboration tools such as discussion forms, email or Live chat (if you see that student is also online).
This course is governed by the . . .
University of Minnesota Duluth Student Academic Integrity Policy
"Academic dishonesty tarnishes UMD's reputation and discredits the accomplishments of students. UMD is committed to providing students every possible opportunity to grow in mind and spirit. This pledge can only be redeemed in an environment of trust, honesty, and fairness. As a result, academic dishonesty is regarded as a serious offense by all members of the academic community. In keeping with this ideal, this course will adhere to UMD's Student Academic Integrity Policy, which can be found at [http://www.d.umn.edu/conduct/integrity/Academic_Integrity_Policy.htm]. This policy sanctions students engaging in academic dishonesty with penalties up to and including expulsion from the university for repeat offenders." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)
and the UMD Student Conduct Code
The instructor will enforce and students are expected to follow the University's Student Conduct Code [http://www1.umn.edu/regents/policies/academic/Student_Conduct_Code.html]. Appropriate classroom conduct promotes an environment of academic achievement and integrity. Disruptive classroom behavior that substantially or repeatedly interrupts either the instructor's ability to teach, or student learning, is prohibited. Disruptive behavior includes inappropriate use of technology in the classroom. Examples include ringing cell phones, text-messaging, watching videos, playing computer games, doing email, or surfing the Internet on your computer instead of note-taking or other instructor-sanctioned activities." — UMD Educational Policy Committee, Jill Jensen, Chair (08/16/2007)
Failure to comply with the above codes and standards when submitting an Extra Credit paper will result in a penalty commensurate with the lapse, up to and including an F final grade for the course, and, at a minimum, a reduction in total points no fewer than the points available for the Extra Credit project. The penalty will not simply be a zero for the project, and the incident will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards.
If you use others' words and/or works you MUST so indicate that with the use of quotation marks. Failure to use quotation marks to indicate that the materials are not of your authorship constitutes plagiarism—even if you have a citation to the source elsewhere in your paper/work.
Patterned failure to so indicate that the materials are not of your own authorship will result in an F grade for the course.
Other instances of improper attribution will result in a 0 (zero) for the assignment (or a reduction in points equal to the value of an Extra Credit paper), and a reduction of one grade in the final grade of the course.
All incidents will be reported to the UMD Academic Integrity Officer in the Office of Student and Community Standards as is required by University Policy.
